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 White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
