"The Replacement Handle was great. The only hiccups were: 1. my lack if a piece of trim (that was unavailable). But the handle works even with the air space around it. AND: 2. why VW designed such a questionable set-up makes you wonder about security. BUT CAR PART's PRODUCT WAS PERFECT !!!" posted by: VW to EVs on June 7, 2010

"Came very fast. I ordered it round a lil before 1 on a tuesday and it was at my house friday morning. It was the right part and the price was way less than if I had bought it from a local auto parts store. Two things to know; you need to be sure everything that caused it to go bad has been fixed if not you will eventually kill the new one so get your check engine light off first. Clean out your egr valve if you didnt need to replace it might as well replace your pcv valve cuz its only $3 and clean out the area where its seated and if an O2 sensor is bad replace it the only two on this car (2000 model year) are right in the area of catalytic. Also if your flex pipe is bad you can just a flex pipe so you may be able to piece it together without having to buy the converter with the pipe to manifold. I ended up replacing or cleaning almost my whole emissions system to get it to pass the state test. With the help of this site and my own ingenuity what would have been over $500 in parts cost less than $140 not bad at all!!" posted by: In Cleveland on January 26, 2014

Volkswagen Quantum: It Came in Almost Unnoticed and Left Unmissed

The Quantum was made to be Volkswagen Dasher's successor, but its introduction broke no fresh ground nor indicated a beginning of a new line or model. It was basically a 2nd-generation Passat that was marketed in the U.S. as the Volkswagen Quantum and offered in three-door hatchback, four-door sedan, and wagon models. According to the Car and Driver magazine, the Quantum seemed to be aimed at the buyers of GM's J-car and X-cars as well as Chrysler's K-cars. The magazine also said that it was slotted in the middle of the budding group of front-drive family sedans, which included the Audi 4000, Nissan Stanza, Honda Accord, and Renault 18i.

1982: Quantum's introduction in the market

Introduced in 1982, the first Quantum to arrive in the market rode on a 100.4-inch wheelbase and was fitted with a longitudinally mounted engine that was sourced from Audi/VW SOHC four family of powertrains. But the first Volkswagen Quantum failed to draw much interest, so Volkswagen wasted no time. A year after the Quantum's release, the automaker offered a turbocharged diesel as an option.

1983: The Quantum GL5 sedan

In mid-1983, Volkswagen offered something to those who were seeking for a hunch of performance with the launching of the Quantum GL5 sedan and wagon that shared the same five-cylinder engine with the Audi 5000. This drivetrain was able to displace 2.1 liters and crank out 100 hp. While that doesn't sound much of a power, during that time, this was Volkswagen's most powerful engine to be fitted on a car sold in the U.S.

Because of weak sales, Volkswagen decided to axe the three-door Quantum coupe from its 1984 line up. The rest of the vehicles in the lineup were carried over from the previous year. For 1985, the five-cylinder engine's displacement was increased to 2.2 liters, therefore boosting its output to 110 hp. However, only the sedan was fitted with the five-cylinder; the wagon still carried the four under its hood.

1986: Syncro--Quantum's all-wheel-drive version

For the 1986 model year, the Volkswagen Quantum wagon was dropped, leaving the sedan the only Quantum model to be offered in North American market. But in mid 1986, Volkswagen released an all-wheel drive version and named it Syncro. This model was basically a rebranded Audi Quattro AWD system. In 1987, VW brought the wagon back with the five-cylinder engine and offered it with Syncro system.

1988: The last year for Volkswagen Quantum

Nothing much changed for Quantum's final year in the market, except for the retuned engine that was able to produce 115 hp. However, that retuning still wasn't enough to make people want to buy the car. The low sales lead to Quantum's demise after the 1988 model year.
