Sieg Heil!

Ok, I've delt with a few VW/German car enthusiasts in my time. And while there are some VW's I'd really like in my driveway, that sort of existing culture turns me away from the name. Same with Chevy and some of the meat headed zealots connected to it. Don't get me started with Harley-Davidson motorcycles....

Food for thought.... what does any car made in 1984 have anything to do with a car's expected reliability rolling out of a factory today?

World English Dictionary

1. mocking, contemptuous, or ironic language intended to convey scorn or insult
2. the use or tone of such language

Jesus, If I said I would really love to hug and kiss poisonous snakes, would some think I seriously mean that as well? Then proceed to tell me how wrong that is?

I don't need to justify my first post, but I've gone this far so what the hell. The sarcasm begins at the start, then ends after "Sieg Heil"

+90% of vw owners bad mouth them... Everything from electrical to mechanical problems... Even days after owning them... Only way i would drive one is if i won one in a rafle or something, then prob sell it a few month later. Im in love with the mk4 r32... But im scared of owning one, fk doing maint on it every week!
