This thread is useless without pics so here we go
Looks so good in white
please please please. they come in TDI?
GTI for not much more with better looks (but less room)
that would be superbadass
if its awd, I am so in
Not AWD I am pretty sure. the next golf will be available in an GTI-R flavor with AWD, though
I have been told by VW representatives in Wolfsburg that we will get the new Scirocco in North America
eh, what they hear from corporate one week may change in another three weeks. VW is constantly crunching numbers on how well, at what price, the scirocco could sell here. anything could be pretty preliminary
True. But I would still like to keep my hopes up... because if it's not for sale by the next spring I'll have to turbo my rabbit
Looks like ass and it's a VW besides.
I might buy a GTi in the future, because they have a huge userbase to keep happy and a huge aftermarket to fix the problems VW doesn't feel like fixing themselves. I will not buy this or any other VW, not until they fix their practice of designing shit to wear out. I can live with planned obsolescence, but planned failure is not cool.
New VWs are a lot more reliable than late 90s stuff
I'd rock one of these
That's what they said about the late 90's stuff back when it was new.
The problem, for the most part, isn't that the designs don't perform well, it's that they're not fucking durable enough. These cars are built in an economy where 2% annual growth is a really good year -- the only business left is selling replacement parts and labor, at least until someone invents the next revolutionary thing.
And then there's the potholes. They don't have potholes in Europe; even their dirt roads are smooth. How else do you think an Audi Allroad could pass as an SUV over there?
They styling lends itself to being RWD but we know it is FWD.
I don't know about that
our experiences with VWAG have not been that bad. the product really isn't as bad as the people standing-or not-behind it
We get the picture. You have bought a bad example. You like to whinge. Get the fuck over it.
uhh i have worked at a vw dealer when the mk5 jetta first came out, a bunch of them have windows that fell off the tracks down into the door... we had garbadge bags over the windows on brand new never titled cars...
it really is still bad.
i think it would interfer with r32 sales.
Deuse, obviously you have never been to Europe, or you're just completely blind.
Europe has plenty of bad roads with lots of holes/potholes. Just throwing that out there
There's a lot more people than me who are dissatisfied with the level of maintenance their VWs demand, brojosephat.
I guess I missed those parts. They have lots of cobblestone roads, yeah, but the ones they actually use are kept level. I don't recall seeing a single actual pothole.
Someone quote deuse for me.
There ya go.
I use my audi hard, had one minor issue, fixed cheaply and quickly because I'm not one of those fucktards that takes their car to the dealer. it's been lowered, I take it on and off building sites and it still goes strong. Best car I've owned.
Second point, what the fuck are you on? I've been driving around Europe these past 3 months and there are fucking potholes everywhere. You drive and you constantly hit one. UK, France, Spain, Italy etc etc. Germany is better though, but they still do exist
no potholes in Europe
As a mechanic (and just an "average Joe") I'd never consider buying a VW...ever.
But I guess part of my reasoning is because I'd never buy a new car, of any brand...ever.
