One of the best car companies of all time. Starting with the Beetle, they continually fired out proven winners with the Scirocco, Vanagon, Karman Ghia and later with the Golf/GTI and Jetta. Time and time again, they've continued to find success with both younger and older generations, instilling a sense of family and comradrie in the drivers, similar to that found in Jeep owners. Most Volkswagen owners who take their cars seriously gain valuable insight into the world of German engineering, tweaking the lines of their cars to both increase their overall performance and retain an impressive and distinct style at the same time.
