Is Volkswagen Still A Brand Worthy Of Your Cash?

You will have no doubt seen the media reports surround the Volkswagen "dieselgate" saga. To repair consumer confidence, the firm is doing its utmost to put things right. In North America, for example, they are offering customers a cash compensation.

Despite the furore that surrounds the VW name in some areas, it's still a good car brand. But is it worthy of your cash if you want to buy a car soon? I think so; let me explain why.

They've been around a long time

Volkswagen as a car brand has been around for many decades. I've seen many car makers come and go over the years, and many of them haven't been around that long. What makes VW unique is they are one of a handful of marques that are well-established in the market.

When buying a car, it's important only to select one from an established brand. Why? Because it means you're likely to get better support for your vehicle. Buy a car from a defunct brand and you'll find spare parts hard to come by. There will also be few specialists around that can solve any complex problems.

They have a range of award-winning vehicles

Over the years, Volkswagen has built and sold many models that have become iconic and loved. Take the Golf GTi, for example. I was browsing cars for sale on motorlinedirect.co.uk and saw one on offer. Even though it was from the latest generation, it still looked as good as the mk1 from 1976!

Believe it or not, there aren't many car makers that can boast making iconic models. Nor can many firms claim their cars can get found in almost every country around the world! Check out golfgti.co.uk to see what I mean!

Build quality that is beyond compare

I've owned all kinds of cars over the years, so I guess this gives me some qualification on the subject. I've had models from budget brands through to luxury ones. British, French, German and Japanese. If you name me a car marque, I can tell you the models from it that I've owned!

One thing I've noticed about the cars I've owned in the past is that VW seems to offer the best build quality. I've heard people in the past say how good German car quality is. But, not all cars built in Germany can boast strong build quality.

It doesn't matter whether you opt for a Volkswagen Up! or the mighty Phaeton. You'll still have a car that won't fall apart at the first sign of trouble.

A strong dealer network

Now I'm not a person that advocates only using VW dealers for buying cars and getting them serviced. The truth is; Volkswagen's dealerships differ from their competitors.

It might shock you to learn they offer a pretty good level of customer service. So, if you need to source a part for your VW, they won't try and force you to buy a new car!

So, I hope today’s blog post shows you why it makes sense to opt for a VW. Let me know what you think?

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
