There's no doubt that consumers worldwide are very familiar with the Volkswagen brand. It continues to be a top seller in the U.S. as consumers continue to trust Volkswagen to put out stylish, affordable, and well-built automobiles.
From the original Beetle to the latest-model Passat, Volkswagen continues to market their vehicles based on reliability, low cost of ownership, and life of the vehicle.
The style is surely important, but when you can drive your affordably priced, stylish vehicle for 300,000 miles, that is something to talk about. Keep in mind that the national average for vehicle life span is eight years, or 150,000 miles. Volkswagen vehicles are designed to last twice as long.
