Tori Spelling Leaving Bed Bath & Beyond with an ActIFry and other thingsVolkswagen Touareg.  There are so many choices out there for vehicles and I have heard a lot of amazing BUZZ  about Volkswagen and the New Volkswagen TDI Touareg Clean Diesel Touareg this past year that  I am so lucky to have the opportunity to drive one and PLAY!!   And let me say ….. I am IN LOVE!!! Not sure why I have never driven one before…

It all started on a Cold Monday afternoon and it was Love at first site when the driver dropped off the shiny white beautiful car.  Yes, I said BEAUTIFUL CAR!! LOL, I really have never been a car person, I def. have an opinion of what I want or need to drive but never have I said I LOVE a car.  The first day I had to run the kids to the DR. and on the way home we took a detour just so we could play a little!!

Later that day we got the car all packed up and got ready for our trip to Arizona!  The Touareg does not have as much trunk space as the car I drive right now but I am ok with that it is minimal and honestly nothing to even think twice about. Plus the seats make up for the lack of comfort my current car has. My two year old when he got in the car actually said AHHHH… like car mommy!!!

I am going to keep you up on my trip, the adventures we are taking and give you all the info you need if you are even thinking twice about a Volkswagen!!

Here is a little information  on Volkswagen has been the leader in diesel vehicles for the past 30 years, and has now become the innovator of new clean diesel technology.  As America embraces greener, cleaner lifestyles, Volkswagen’s clean diesels offer a real fuel alternative.  And celebrities  have taken notice. In the past year Volkswagen has been a part of major events including the Lakers Championship Party at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, the Hollywood Life Young Style Awards, Isaac Mizrahi Live with QVC, and more. Celebrities including Lauren Conrad, Mary Louise Parker, Jeremy Piven, Angie Harmon, Brody Jenner, Katie Cassidy, Jessica Lowndes, Kim Kardashian, Hayden Panetierre, Mira Sorvino, Jimmy Kimmell, David Arquette, Chace Crawford, Anne Heche, and Selena Gomez have chosen to drive and be driven in Volkswagen Clean Diesel Vehicles.

It is a well known fact that celebrities’ choices for products, restaurants, cars, and other entities influence the buying public. And their support of Volkswagen’s Clean Diesel technology shows their commitment to leaving less of a carbon footprint on the environment and being eco-conscious. Increased fuel economy means less trips to the gas station, incredible gas mileage, cost-savings and greater full economy…all equaling a lower Carbon Footprint:  the clean diesel Touareg V6 TDI Clean Diesel averages 38/44 mpg in AMCI certified testing. Volkswagen’s TDI Clean Diesel technology realizes diesel’s full potential with improved performance, increased mileage and a 95% drop in sooty emissions. Volkswagen’s technologically innovative and environmentally responsible Touareg V6 TDI is one of the most fuel efficient and cleanest SUVs in the world. The Touareg V6 TDI defines a completely new generation of extremely economical and low emission SUVs and reinforces Volkswagen’s leadership in Clean Diesel technology with the most sensible alternative fuel powerplants available today. The Touareg V6 TDI Clean Diesel is powered by a 3.0L, turbocharged six cylinder engine that produces 225 horsepower and an impressive 407 lbs-ft. of torque.Utilizing third generation common rail injection and the most advanced catalytic converter system in the world, it meets Tier 2, Bin 5/ULEV II standards and is available in all 50 states. Helping the Touareg V6 TDI meet the most stringent emission requirements of the world is its advanced DeNOx system, just one of the vehicle’s many technicaltrademarks. The Touareg V6 TDI is one of the first SUVs in the world to have this advanced type of catalytic converter on board. The Touareg V6 TDI, like all 2010 model year Volkswagens, is included in the no charge Carefree Maintenance Program. Under this program all of the Touareg’s scheduled maintenance, as described in its maintenance booklet, is covered for the length of the New Vehicle Warranty — three years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first. And here’s a gift with purchase! The Federal Government recognizes Volkswagen is doing its part to help the environment and lower fuel emissions— anyone who purchases a Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI will receive a $1300.00 federal tax credit. You can live like a celebrity without having to shell out big bucks to do so!

Factoid: The clean diesel Touareg V6 TDI recently set a new Guinness World Record for lowest fuel consumption, averaging over 58mpg as it drove through the 48 contiguous states.
