Re: What does Jetta Mean? (NwRocco)

Jetta= Jet stream winds over Canada into US
Golf= Gulf stream current from norway i believe. (Ocean current)
Scirocco=Warm winds coming from Africa across to the Med. Sea.
Passat=german term for trade wind
Bonus:
Bora=cold winds that blow from Hungary and into the Adriatic Sea.
I should have been a scientist

A customer of mine was named Jetta as well, but she was older. My guess would be around her late 30's or so.

What about the paint colors, my car is Tornado Red. What about Alpine White, Montana Green, etc..................

That I have never looked into. It seems Volkswagen keeps an earthy tone to there names though when it comes to do there cars.

Re: What does Jetta Mean? (MKDUECE)

a little off topic, but what does "IIRC" mean. I see it all the time and just never bothered asking. I know most of the acronyms, but not that one.

Passat was actually the name of Germany's first naval ship...or something like that...The Passat is the only vehicle that doesn't follow the "wind" theme.
