    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

    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?

    I don't know about that :o:o
    our experiences with VWAG have not been that bad. the product really isn't as bad as the people standing-or not-behind it

    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.

    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 :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Signing in.

    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.
