Welcome to Vermont TDI Imports, a licensed, bonded and insured family business in Vermont aimed at meeting the needs of drivers who are looking for a high-quality "green" automotive choice. In recent years (until the 2009 model year) VW dealers were not able to sell new TDIs in VT, ME, MA, NY and CA. We started our business during those years and right after Katrina with rising fuel prices and a rising interest in more green automotive choices. We specialize in late-model low-mileage TDIs still under factory warranty.

We select only VW TDIs with verified service records, especially selecting only those where the correct VW spec synthetic oil has been used. We do not buy auction cars which we consider to be "anonymous." Our typical offering is a Southern one-owner TDI purchased directly from the owner.

TDIs and Diesel Cars in the News:
March 2013 -
It's cheaper to drive a diesel-powered vehicle than a gas-powered vehicle over the course of three to five years, according to a new study commissioned by Robert Bosch LLC – a company that makes plenty of diesel engine parts – using data compiled by The University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute. The savings stem not just from improved fuel efficiency but also overall fuel costs and better retention of value, and take into account the added purchase price of a diesel engine over its gasoline counterpart.

6/25/13 - New MPG World Record in a 2013 Passat TDI Manual

5/1/12 - "It's probably fair to say that many hybrids ask you to sacrifice a little fun in your driving for the good of fuel efficiency--neither the Prius nor the Civic Hybrid we've covered so far are particularly fun to drive.
The Jetta TDI is different. With strong torque available from low revs thanks to the turbocharged diesel engine, it really punches through the gears, and even at freeway speeds it has plenty of shove for quick overtaking. It's also a lot more fun when you get to the corners, so even without considering economy the Jetta TDI has plenty of merits." - "Best Used Green Car To Buy: Volkswagen Jetta TDI": Green Car Reports

5/1/12 - "...the real story is that we might be seeing the start of a golden era for diesel-powered cars in the U.S. In fact, clean diesel sales were up 35 percent in the first quarter of 2012 over Q1 2011, a trend – and it is a trend, since diesel sales were up 27 percent in 2011 – that the Diesel Technology Forum (DTF) says is due to higher fuel prices pushing people into the efficient oil-burners." -"Diesel sales jump, we ask 'how high'? (35 percent): AutoBlog Green

10/4 - Canadian video production in three parts comparing several clean diesels. Some inaccuracies but a good overview for someone new to the diesel car market: Part One, Part Two, Part Three.

9/17/09 - Check out this video comparing high-mpg daily drivers. (You Tube)

9/16/09 - Mileage Champs See the USA at 67.9 MPG- NYT, September 10,2009

4/10/08 - Diesel: Greener Than You Think, from Business Week
"After a century of propelling highway trucks, construction gear, trains, and buses, diesel technology is set to give hybrids a run for the top spot in the green-car market. For consumers, this means more eco-friendly options."

Engine oil requirement for all Volkswagen vehicles: When performing repairs, scheduled maintenance or other service to Volkswagen vehicles that require the addition of engine oil, whether topping off or doing a complete oil change, dealers must use engine oil that meets Volkswagen oil quality standards. *2004 to 2006 PD engines in the TDI must use 505.01 VW approved oil. We use 5w-40 Castrol TXT. For the 09-12 clean diesels, use these oils.

Low sulfur diesel and lubricity issues: Hydroprocessing removes sulfur/sulphur and significant amounts of polar and aromatic compounds that give conventional diesel fuel adequate lubricating capability. Low lubricity in diesel fuel can caus...e engine problems unless treated with additives. *We use Power Service, Stanadyne or Optilube XPD. The first is the most commonly available.

Go to our Fruitlands B&B Web site.

We can pick you up at BTV, Burlington, VT, airport, or at the AmTrak station in Montpelier, VT. We also offer a free overnight in our B&B for buyers traveling from a distance.


Tire Pressures: Tire Inflation
Proper tire inflation plays a large role in keeping vehicles fuel efficient. For example, a vehicle with a recommended pressure of 35 psi whose tires are at 28 psi will have increased its rolling resistance by 12.5%. Read your label on the inside of the driver's door. Most VW TDIs have a higher cold inflation # than most of you would think...traditional thought being 32 psi.

If you want to read a recent and thorough report on tires and fuel economy, read this report from the Transportation Research Board.

Check out the "coming" section above. Don't hesitate to call or e-mail to ask about your automotive needs. WE have sold three TDIs in the past two weeks before we even had a chance to post them here. There is no better time to be moving to a safe and comfortable vehicle that is a pleasure to drive and can return high mpgs.

I am 6'5" and can respectfully state that the Fit has a crazy amount of room and can accommodate large amounts of cargo with its flexible seating configurations. Essentially this car has seen no winter driving.

Included in this price is also a nice set of 17" Touareg rims and new General Altimax Arctic winters in 235/65/17 108H. If you do not want the extra rim/tire package, we can negotiate that reduction in price. I drove her home from Salt Lake UT. 2,400 miles with cruise set from 70-78 mph and did 28.5 mpg for total trip. In local driving I am seeing up to 32 mpg. The 2011 added an 8-speed tranny and lightened total weight by over 400 lbs. The Dynaudio in this Touareg is stunning. 600+ watts. A very complete discussion of the changes for the 2011 Touareg.

Explanation of the DSG transmission:
The Direct-Shift Gearbox or DSG (Direkt-schalt getriebe) is an electronically controlled, twin-shaft dual-clutch manual gearbox, without a conventional clutch pedal, with full automatic, or semi-manual control. In simple terms, it is two separate manual gearboxes, contained within one housing, and working as one unit. It is designed by BorgWarner and initially licensed to Volkswagen Group (which owns the Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, and Škoda brands). By using two clutches, fast shifts can be achieved, and the torque converter of a regular automatic transmission is eliminated.

At this moment, the DSG transmission is only available in transaxle-mounted front engine, front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.

A twin-clutch gearbox or dual clutch transmission (DCT) is a semi-automatic transmission with separate clutches for odd and even gears. The outer clutch drives the odd numbered gears, while the inner clutch drives the even numbered gears. Shifts can be accomplished without interrupting power, by applying the engine's torque to one clutch just as the engine's torque is being disconnected from the other clutch. Since the synchronizers that select an odd gear can be moved while driving the car in an even gear, and vice versa, DCT's have been configured which shift more quickly than Formula One and other cars equipped with single-clutch AMT's (automated-manual transmissions, a.k.a. single-clutch semi-automatics). Also, with a DCT, shifts can be made more smoothly than with an AMT, making a DCT more suitable for street-driving.

A twin-clutch gearbox eliminates the torque converter used in traditional automatic transmissions. However, dual clutch transmissions that are currently on the market use wet multi-plate clutches, similar to the clutches used in traditional automatic transmissions. Versions that use dry clutches, like those usually associated with manual transmissions, are rumored to be in development by several manufacturers.
