Will the Polo Resurrect VW US?
January 16th, 2009 10:29 AM Share
Automotive News [sub] reports that VW is bringing the Polo econobox stateside. “Oil prices will rise again,” VW development chief Ulrich Hackenberg said, unaware of the expression’s meaning to Lynyrd Skinner fans. “and that will drive small car sales up further.” Further than…? Hackenberg said VW’s assembly plant in Puebla, Mexico could spit out the Polo for U.S. consumers. He did not say why this hadn’t been done before, when it might start now, whether or not it would be the next gen Polo or what color we should paint his trial balloon. I know! Green!

I like it! Maybe VW will get it right this time..... After all,VW started it all
That depends on how long they can convince people they've bought a quality product.
"I don’t understand the U.S. anti-VW bias" Because many of us use to own a VW. Most unreliable car in my life was a VW Rabbit.
