VW is trying to offer a trio of cars at 15-16k? Do you have any information saying that is not working? Are you saying that they are losing money to get back in the market?

Dennis Elam

Wacey I am not sure if Matt or I made that remark, I am saying that VW is still a shadow of what it once was and there ads look a lot like the Toyota Yaris ads, VW has not been making money in the US market and is well below Jerry Flint's 300,000 per year level of really being in the game. For a company that once had 10% or so of the market, this is a big comedown, also they have been plagued with quality problems something that never happened with the original VW. Does anyone in the class drive a VW, does anyone know someone that does, could you find the nearest dealer with out a map and a phone book, see what I mean?


Actually, the first line is quoted from the blog. I was just curious what evidence there was of them struggling and if their current pricing strategy wasn't working. It seems every where I turn there is a Jetta or Golf (aka Rabbit) roaming around. And yes, I do own a VW (2002) and absolutely love it. I know where the closest dealership is that simple reason but not sure if I could lead you to the next furthest one out.

Autobahn Motorcar in Fort Worth advertises "luxury automobile sales & service." They sell BMW, Porche, Jaguar, Volvo, Land Rover, and VW. I've only been there twice (oil changes) but must say they seem to run a good business.
