I'm genuinely intrigued....
Not that I would buy a New Beetle unless it was a weird diesel manual type...
I'm not sure what it is but current VW is actually quite good. At least if you stick to the Golf. Having a MK7 GTI and MK7 alltrack, I genuinely like these cars. There's enough torque for in-town use and really good highway comfort as well as fuel efficiency. I guess I'm not looking for much in cars anymore as I've gotten older despite my longing for some sort of Porsche later on. After seeing a recent SavageGeese video on the Ford Explorer, and having driven a few GM and FCA vehicles in rental fleets, VW is the right amount of "good" for the price. All I've ever looked for in a car is to just do things and not make an art form of it. For my tastes, VW is it for the moment. Some have said German cars are boring and some will single out VW in perticular to which I disagree as Toyota and Honda have the German brands beat as far as "good dullness" is concerned as Japanese brands have a whole new level of "it just works" dullness that I think German brands have yet to achieve.
What is Ford doing these days anyways?
This post brought to you by an afternoon of beer.
We like the new Explorer minus that damn grill which is barely tolerable IMO when blacked out like on the ST. The grill and the asinine infotainment screen mounted in the derp position are probably going to drive us to get the Aviator when we get rid of our Edge.
