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?

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
