      A genuine American should lead the Volks Wagen America Group. Maybe an American speed metal music band should be the brand ambassador of the VW Sports Division. Genuine Americans to lead the other divisions. Made In America with genuine American mindset is better than Made In Germany with American badging. God bless America. America Über Alles! America Über Alles. Not... Deutschland Über Alles.

    I bought a new Golf TDI in 2001. I sold it about 5 years ago with 326K miles on it. I know that it is still on the road as it is a few miles from me, and it is getting nearly 50 MPG. That was a winner of a car. When I owned that car several people came up to me and asked if I would sell it. That was amazing. How often do people ask if you want to sell the car? These were total strangers too. I own a 2014 VW Jetta Sportwagen TDI now, and it gets 40-42 MPG on street/highway mix. I will have it a long time.

    The Golf is dead for US/Canada, but the Mk 8 has been out in Europe and the rest of the world for over a year. The Mk 8 GTI and R are coming late this summer or fall and will be made in Germany. Too bad, I have a 2018 Golf S and love it. Another smaller car bites the dust in the US.

    More half news and bad advice from Scotty. VW is not pulling out of the US market in fact there market share has grown every year for more than the last 5 years. They are cutting the Mk8 Base Golf mainly becouse we have not gotten a base golf in decades that's why the starting price is so high. The golf is the 3rd best selling car in history and VW is the only company to have 3 cars in the top 10 best selling cars of all time.

    My 2005 Camry had bad motor mounts and when I got new ones and I put them in. And two of them were such a pain to get into place with the aftermarket parts. Once I got everything tightened up, minut the front mount. The bolt that holds the bracket to the mount wouldn’t tighten all the way down. And I’m not sure why. And now my car shudders when it is in drive and idle. But not any other time.

The OBD Code came back with a P0715 code: Transmission speed sensor. Car has 144000 miles and the transmission guy is saying the have to drop the valve body yadayada $650. OK with some effort I can replacement TSS myself; from what I can tell the TSS is on the top of the transaxle and not in the valve body. What is your opinion? Sorry for the long winded text this car has been an expensive nightmare to own.

    I like the Golf concept. It was a great design. The original Golf/Rabbit was simple and easy to maintain. And they were fun driving cars. But then the engineers got too much time on their hands and they start to make it complicated, and they breakdown, and they breakdown for no good reasons, and that is annoying. I wanted to buy one many times, but never did. I had a guardian angel looking over my shoulder. Some of my friends have bought over the years, and they always have little problems all the time. Not to mention the friend who bought the diesel, which broken down in the middle of a 2,000 mile road trip. (Oil pump issue which fried the engine.) Cost him thousands to repair, and the flight to the middle of nowhere to retrieve it. And then the diesel-gate, which rendered the car worthless. I think I will stay with Toyota.

    So... VW bad in Pensilvania... VW bad in Mexico... But then you accuse Mexicans of being lousy car assemblers... wouldn't you accuse all Americans for the same sin? Or... wouldn't it be more logical to claim VW sucks, as other brands build their cars in the US and México WITH OUT ANY Fin ISSUES!
