Keep seeing more and more new VW's in my parts. The clean, conservative styling is actually refreshing compared to the over done odd lines and curves styling of many new cars.
Meanwhile my vw Beetle tdi just turned over 1/4 million miles.
Every car has its issues. Vw simply threw away the design in order to gain volume. I guess they figured they could go cheap and make it up on Audi.

I think the new NA/Sino Jetta and Passat models are doing damage to the brand as a whole in the U.S. market. If VW wanted to introduce a less expensive model to help bolster sales then, IMO, they should have looked into bringing the Skoda brand over to American shores and left VW alone to continue their pursuit of the higher-end of the volume, mainstream automotive market. Ironically, VW purchased Skoda with the intent of making the Czech brand their entry-level marque and have done exactly that in Europe. In fact, the current Octavia and Superb are very much like the new Jetta and Passat models sold in North America, only more stylish and with better materials, fit, and finish. Given this, I have to wonder why VW would dumb down their VW brand offerings in one of their most important markets rather than bring over the superior, entry-level offerings they already market under their dedicated, entry-level brand?
Current VW brand strategy in America only makes sense when you get to Audi level product or higher.
