If you're in the market for a new Volkswagen Rabbit, VW dealers in the Chicago area are offering a new kind of roadside assistance package. Anyone who buys a new Rabbit in Chicago during the month of June gets a Trek Lime bike and a Saris rack to mount it on. Owners will now have the option of either driving the Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (PZEV) Rabbit or the zero emissions bike. The Trek Lime has a three speed automatic transmission while the Rabbit has the option of either a five speed manual or six speed TipTronic automatic.

CHICAGO VOLKSWAGEN DEALERS ARE GOING GREEN: CUSTOMERS WILL RECEIVE A TREK LIME BIKE WITH PURCHASE OR LEASE OF NEW RABBIT IN JUNE

CHICAGO
-Chicago Volkswagen dealers are offering a Trek Lime bike and a Saris bike rack to customers who purchase or lease a new Rabbit from June 1 to July 2, 2007.

"When owners are out driving a considerable distance, we encourage them to drive their fuel-efficient Rabbit," said Stuart Karp, central region director, Volkswagen of America, Inc. "If it's a quick hop around town, we encourage them to help the environment and ride their new Trek Lime bike."

With a starting price of under $15,000, the Rabbit offers either a five-speed manual or a six-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission. The Rabbit conforms to the Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (PZEV) guidelines and has an estimated EPA mileage of 30 mile per gallon highway.

The Lime, one of Trek's newest bikes, comes standard with Shimano's coasting technology, incorporating a three-speed automatic transmission that changes gears automatically to make bike riding more enjoyable. The Lime is also customizable with "skins," a chain guard grip color decal, which can be switched out to the color of your choice. The Lime's most important features are its environmental friendliness and promotion of a healthy lifestyle.

This promotion is available at participating Chicago-area Volkswagen dealers.
