VW’s Tennessee plant geared to US market with its new Passat By Kristin M. Hall The Associated Press

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Volkswagen is jumping into the U.S. auto market with a domestically built Passat that is bigger and cheaper, bidding to break into the competitive midsize sedan market. At the grand opening of its new plant in Chattanooga, the German automaker presented the 2012 Passat last week as the key to building U.S. sales to 1 million units by 2018. The factory has been producing cars since April, and Volkswagen officials recently took the opportunity to show off both their German-designed sedan and the $1-billion plant. The new Passat will go on sale in the third quarter for $20,000 a car. That’s about $7,000 cheaper than current models built in Germany and close to the prices of such competitors’ models as the Ford Fusion, the Toyota Camry, the Honda Accord and Hyundai Sonata. Jonathan Browning, president and chief executive officer of Volkswagen Group of America, said the automaker wants to make German engineering more accessible to North American buyers. “The Passats produced here in Chattanooga will be a key enabler to our growth, allowing us to compete in the core of the midsize sedan segment,� Browning told

reporters before the unveiling of the plant. Volkswagen intends to produce 150,000 sedans annually at Chattanooga for the American market, a big jump for a car that has only sold a peak of 80,000 units annually in the U.S. in its history. Analysts say high production is needed if they are to keep pace with competitors. Rebecca Lindland, senior analyst for IHS Automotive, said the best-selling brand in the market, the Toyota Camry, is expected to sell 350,000 units next year. “One of the big obstacles that Volkswagen faces is that people know of the brand, but don’t necessarily think of the brand when buying a car,� Lindland said. The carmaker is trying to change that with the Passat, which was featured in a popular Superbowl commercial with a youngster in a Darth Vader costume. The actor, 8-year-old Max Page, was on hand in Chattanooga to open the factory doors for tours. “Das auto is finally back in the States,� declared Martin Winterkorn, chairman of the board of management for Volkswagen AG, the parent company of Volkswagen. Being the only European brand in the crowded pack may be the Passat’s selling point. The 4-door sedan is offered with either diesel or regular gasoline engines, comes

standard with dual-zone climate control and Bluetooth features. The diesel version boasts 43 mpg on the highway and the standard version, 32 mpg for a 2.5-liter. The plant itself has such energy-efficient design measures as LED lighting and rainwater recycling. Frank Fischer, who heads VW’s Chattanooga plant, said the complex uses 35 percent less energy than a standard automotive plant. Lindland said diesel car sales have increased 48 percent in the year to date, as consumers look to European brands for better fuel efficiency — even higher than hybrid car purchases, which rose 25 percent in the same period. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said at the grand opening that consumers are seeking out cars that not only save them money on gas, but also contribute to the national economy and curb the effects on the environment. “We know that clean diesel is one ingredient in the recipe for our long-term energy security,� he said. When Volkswagen selected Chattanooga as the site of its new American plant, they knew that the only way to make a dent in the U.S. car market was producing American cars, Fischer said. “You have to be a local producer to also be in the market,� Fischer said.

Audi A7 classy, powerful By Mark Phelan Detroit Free Press

The 2012 Audi A7 3.0 TFSI Quattro is a Swiss Army knife of a car, a multipurpose tool humming with the energy of a supercharged 310-horsepower V6. The A7’s refined styling conceals a huge, practical cargo space. Its go-fast looks are complemented by a powerful and fuel-efficient engine and transmission. The interior of the car I tested combined the old-style appeal of leather and wood with bleeding-edge technology like a nav system with Google Earth satellite photos, a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot and the best voice-control system I’ve experienced in any European luxury car. The A7 is essentially the flagship of the model line for Audi’s new A6 midsize

sport sedan, which goes on sale this summer. The A7 competes with all-wheel drive sport sedans like the BMW 535i xDrive, Cadillac CTS4, Lexus GS 350 AWD and Mercedes-Benz E350 4Matic. Despite a couple of minor ergonomic flaws, it ranks with BMW at the top of the class. The A7 should singlehandedly eliminate the widespread prejudice against hatchbacks. Its classy looks and accommodating interior make it one of the most attractive and practical sporty luxury cars on the road. Prices for the 2012 Audi A7 3.0 TFSI Quattro start at $59,250. The car comes standard with all-wheel drive, a 310-horsepower 3.0-liter direct-injection supercharged V6, eight-speed

automatic transmission and much more. It’s effectively the sportiest, best-equipped model of the new A6 sedan that goes on sale shortly. I tested a well-equipped model that cost $66,555. All prices exclude destination charges. The A7’s price compares well with other leading allwheel-drive sport sedans like the 535i, CTS, GS 350 and E350 thanks to a range of useful features the other cars don’t offer. The A7 seats four comfortably. Both rows of seats provide excellent head and shoulder room. The hatchback holds a mega-sized 24.5 cubic feet, bigger than any of the competitive models and more than twice as big as the GS’ trunk. A parcel shelf keeps road noise from echoing in the

big cargo space. The wide, low opening makes it easy to load big objects. The A7’s interior is quiet, with little road or wind noise. The interior of the car I tested featured soft black perforated leather seats and a lovely dark wood with a finish that lets you feel the material’s grain. The front-seat cupholders were too close to the armrest; it was hard to use them with cups the size of a large Starbucks coffee. The gauges were large and clear. Most of the controls were simple, though I didn’t see much value in the small touchpad Audi added to the MMI system that controls audio, navigation, phone and many other systems. The ventilated seats are See AUDI, Page 12

Beware of suspicious Internet offers By Steven Cole Smith McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Question: I have a car for sale on Craigslist.com, and I received an offer from a buyer in Europe who will pay me with a cashier’s check. Is this a scam? — M.A.L., Fort Lauderdale Answer: Unless you have, say, a vintage Aston-Martin for sale, any interest shown from a buyer a long distance away is likely a scam — no one in Europe is looking to buy your Honda Accord or Toyota Corolla. There are plenty of scams, but a common one in a case like this will have the “buyer” send you a cashier’s check or a money order for more than the actual purchase price. Say you are asking $3,000 — the buyer may send you $6,000, tell you to cash it and then instruct you to immediate-

ly send $3,000 back, which he or she supposedly will use to cover shipping costs. Only after you cash the check or money order do you find out it is fake, making you responsible for all $6,000. Q: I was told by my auto mechanic that my tires were rotting from within. Have you ever heard of that? — J.S. Lee A: I haven’t, but more importantly, neither has John Rastetter, director of information services for The Tire Rack. “Unless he dismounted the tires, I have no idea how you could tell that with the tires still on the wheels.” Rastetter wondered if the mechanic was trying to sell you a “nitrogen fill,” to replace the air in your tires. If so, save your money.

Miami firm announces more EV charging sites Special to On The Move

MIAMI BEACH — Car Charging Group Inc., a provider of electric vehicle charging services, says it has completed the installations of seven EV charging stations for the city of West Palm Beach. “We’re thrilled to be working with the city of West Palm Beach,” said Car Charging Group CEO Michael D. Farkas. “As one of the first municipalities installing EV charging stations in the state of Florida, they clearly share our passion and understand the importance of installing a national infrastructure of EV charging stations.” Car Charging Group will install seven Level II, 240volt ChargePoint networked charging stations for electric vehicles. The hardware is manufactured by Coulomb Technologies. The charging stations will be housed in the downtown Clematis Street Garage at 500 Banyan Blvd. Five of the seven stations will be allocated for West Palm Beach official use, including Parking Administration and Code Enforcement departments, to provide charging support for five new Nissan LEAF elec-

A Nissan Leaf is seen at an EV charging site in Portland, Ore. Soon, such sights will be seen in West Palm Beach, where Car Charging Group Inc., a provider of electric vehicle charging services, recently completed the installations of seven EV charging stations. tric vehicles purchased by the city. Two stations at the garage will be available free of charge to the public. Both Nissan LEAFs and EV charging stations are funded

through the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant program, designed to assist cities in implementing projects to reduce fossil

fuel emissions and reduce energy use. “We’re very excited about installing these EV charging stations,” said Penni Redford, the sustainability manager for

the city of West Palm Beach. “By installing charging stations, we are positioning West Palm Beach as a green leader, while simultaneously bolstering our mission to promote West Palm Beach’s thriving downtown business district.” The city plans on analyzing data recorded on the

public charging stations’ usage patterns. Data collection is enabled through the ChargePoint network management applications, which give station owners the ability to track and report energy usage and greenhouse gas savings. Through its analysis, the city will decide if and when to install additional charging stations. Car Charging Group plans to build out a nationwide infrastructure enabling owners to charge their EVs any time, anywhere. As part of its strategy, the company owns, provides, installs and maintains electric vehicle charging units and works with its landowner partners to identify appropriate locations for the stations. Charging stations are located at safe, convenient public sites, such as shopping malls, parking garages, multifamily residential developments and commercial properties. Car Charging Group cites estimates that 40 million plugin electric vehicles will be on the road by 2030, prompting the need to establish a comprehensive network of charging stations for those drivers.

Air-conditioner trouble can have various causes By Brad Bergholdt

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Question: My air conditioner hasn’t worked for quite a while, and I’m considering having it fixed. The vents blow warm air. My question is how much it might cost. I don’t mind paying maybe $150, but am concerned I might pay that much just to find out it’s going to be $600, which I can’t swing. It is a 1999 Buick. Answer: Automotive air-conditioning systems use an engine-driven compressor to circulate refrigerant and a

Under The hood small quantity of lubricant through a large loop of hoses and pipes to four additional components and back to the compressor. The loop includes the condenser, a radiatorlike device mounted behind the vehicle’s grille. Next is a small tank, called either a receiver/dryer or accumulator; a flow control device; and the evaporator, which is a second radiatorlike device located behind the instrument

panel. The final path is back to the compressor. As the refrigerant is compressed and passes through the various devices, it changes from vapor to liquid and back to vapor, along with changes in pressure. This process allows heat to be drawn into the evaporator from the passenger compartment and released by the condenser outside the vehicle. The most common air conditioning faults are loss of refrigerant from leakage; electrical faults in switches and controls; or a failed or leaking com-

pressor. Leakage can occur from hose and pipe connections, the compressor shaft seal or, more rarely, cracks, splits or corrosion of various system parts. Leakage often leaves a telltale sign: a dirty, sticky buildup of escaped lubricant at the point of leakage. Electrical problems can result in the compressor or cooling fan not working. A failed compressor is the worstcase scenario because of the high cost of parts and labor. Odds are high you’re low on refrigerant

because of leakage. The servicing technician will evaluate system pressures, look for telltale leakage, recharge as necessary to test for a leak, then recommend your repair options. In a bestcase scenario, no significant leaks are found, an evacuation and refrigerant recharge are performed, and you’re good to go for about the price you hoped for. More likely, a hose or pipe connection o-ring will require replacement in addition to the evacuation and charge, pushing the bill a bit higher. Worse yet

would be a leaking hose assembly or faulty flow control device. Deal-breaker problems could be a leaking condenser or evaporator or a failed compressor. If the system has lost all refrigerant and moisture-laden air has entered, replacement of the receiver/dryer or accumulator is also recommended. Moisture reacts with refrigerant to cause corrosion. —Brad Bergholdt is an automotive technology instructor at Evergreen Valley College in San Jose, Calif.

Texas plant lobbying for new GM line By Bob Cox Fort Worth Star-Telegram

FORT WORTH, Texas — In recent weeks, General Motors Co. officials have gone to local governments in search of fresh tax breaks that they say are needed to persuade the company to spend $240 million to retool and expand its Arlington, Texas, truck assembly plant. The Arlington plant, they say, has to compete with other GM facilities and make the best financial case to build the next generation of GM sport utility vehicles. But the decision to build those vehicles in Arlington was probably made long ago, analysts say, at least when GM shuttered several of its older plants before and after its 2009 bankruptcy reorganization. “They’re not going to take SUVs out of Arlington,” said Tracy Handler, automotive industry analyst with the IHS Automotive consulting firm. “I don’t think there’s any real question about it,” she said. While she noted that GM’s former SUV plant in Janesville, Wis., isn’t closed completely and, “if they wanted to mess with the union or local officials,” the company could use the facility, “but I don’t think that’s going to happen.” The Arlington plant has consistently ranked among GM’s best for productivity, low costs and vehicle quality. GM officials have indicated that they will introduce all-new lines of fullsize trucks, both pickups and SUVs, with production beginning around 2013. It’s likely that the plans for the new pickups, a segment of the market with fierce competition, will come before plans for SUVs. GM this month began making a series of announcements, which probably will last for several months, regarding its intention to

Honda will hire 1,000 at Indiana auto plant By Robert King The Indianapolis Star

Brandon Wade/ Fort Worth Star-telegram

GM Assembly Plant workers gather on May 26 to hear the announcement that GM will invest $331 million and bring 110 new jobs to the General Motors Assembly Plant in Arlington, Texas.

The Arlington plant has consistently ranked among GM’s best for productivity, low costs and vehicle quality. invest about $2 billion in existing plants, both those that make components and those that assemble vehicles. Last week, it announced a $204 million investment in a Toledo, Ohio, plant to build new eight-speed transmissions, and $109 million to expand small-engine plants in Flint and Bay City, Mich. In a brief interview last week, Paul Graham, the Arlington plant manager,

gave no clue to the future of the plant, but did say it continues to do a very good job producing SUVs. The Arlington plant is now the only one producing the six large SUV models sold under the Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC brands. With employees working 50- and 60-hour weeks all last year, the plant built more than 280,000 vehicles, its most ever. The plant has about 2,200 hourly production workers and 200 salaried employees, with an annual payroll approaching $300 million. Conventional wisdom among financial analysts is that a bigger threat to the Arlington plant is the rising price of gasoline, which could undermine sales of the big SUVs. GM’s sales of large SUVs dipped 18 percent in April from 2010 levels as gaso-

line prices approached or, in many places, surpassed $4 a gallon. Inventories of unsold vehicles were significantly higher on May 1 than a month earlier. GM has not indicated any plans to cut Arlington production, Graham said. The plant continues to work two shifts five days a week, and six days some weeks, providing workers with a steady stream of overtime pay. If inventories get too high, Handler, the IHS analyst, said GM could probably boost SUV sales by adding rebates or other incentives such as sweetened lease deals. “They haven’t put a lot of incentives on the SUVs recently,” Handler said. “If they look at supply and think there’s a problem, they have room to pump up sales by adding incentives without hurting their profit much.”

The Arlington plant is now the only one producing the six large SUV models sold under the Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC brands. With employees working 50- and 60-hour weeks all last year, the plant built more than 280,000 vehicles, its most ever.

GREENSBURG, Ind. — Honda will double the number of workers at its assembly plant here by the end of the year — adding 1,000 jobs — as part of a dramatic increase in auto production, a person familiar with the company said. The new workers — part of a new second shift at the Greensburg, Ind., plant — will be necessary for The new Honda to workers reach its new goal will be of producnecesing 200,000 cars a year, sary for sa id the source, who Honda to requested reach its anonymity because new goal he was not of proauthorized ducing to spe a k publ icly 200,000 about the cars a develop ment. Honyear. da now produces about 100,000 cars a year in Greensburg. The plant, which opened in 2008, employs about 1,000 workers involved in the production of the Honda Civic sedan and the Honda Civic GX sedan natural gas vehicle. Honda was looking to add a second shift after it began production. But then the recession hit and those plans were put on hold. That wait now appears to be over. News of the increased production comes after a difficult spring for Honda, whose parts supply lines were affected by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
