qotd will you miss the volkswagen arteon

The Volkswagen Arteon is dead. Long live the Arteon.

With reports coming in telling us that the swoopy sedan is going to the junkyard in the sky, I ask you -- will you miss it?

Slow sales seem to suggest the answer is in the negative, but even if you didn't buy the car, that doesn't mean you didn't like it. So, will you miss it?

Sound off below.

    This article made me think about capacious hatchbacks. After poking around a bit I settled on the idea that the best capacious hatchback is a Tesla Model S, or if you want an ICE or don't want a Tesla, a used 2016-17 Audi A7 with the brilliant supercharged 3.0 V6.

    Dead on arrival. Surprising VW bothered with this car in the first place.

    Less VWs is never a bad thing… People are all too willing to overlook this company’s troubling history which includes Dieselgate and inception at Hitler’s bequest.

    I purchased a 22 in Februrary. Manager had been using it and it had 2500 miles on it. Got it for 7k less than list. My deciding factors were the utility of the 27 sq. ft. hatch, 300 hp, AWD, DCT, a spacious back seat and the 3 year maintainence plan. It also has great lines. Yes the A5 interior is nicer but it was also more expensive, less powerful and smaller.

      cONGRATS. Nice car. Update us on the quality. Worry about VW lemons popping up.

    i was a VW/Audi person for 30years and would have bought an Art as I loved it, if VW was honest with my past issues.

    My GTI had had to have each point and each window support replaced individually as they failed even though VW had a tech bulletin saying they knew that all would have to be replaced eventually. Who would buy a car from a company that made you come in 8 times and rent a car each time when one visit under warranty to have all fixed at one VISIT WOULD HAV SOLVED ALL? So... I moved to Acura where they addressed any failures all at once, forever.
