How come everytime I say I own a Volkswagen, people ask if I have a Jetta? Is that the only ****uar VW? The Jetta and the beetle? Today, I showed a group of people today, my friends, who know nothing about cars and think Japanese cars are fast. But all of them said "Man thats a nice Jetta" I thought everyone knew the difference between a golf and a jetta. I even said its a GTi, and they kept on going on how its a Jetta. Oh yeah, they always asume its a Diesel too. I guess VW's the car that nobody knows of or cares about except enthusiasts or people that just know **** all about cars in general.

Why diesel? because VW perfected it and it's one and the only brand that sells cars with diesel in NA.
Secondly i think that even a dumbest blonde knows what a VW Bug is
As for the Golf and Jetta If i wasnt into cars at all I would probably say Golf (most known hatchback in the world)

Actually its the opposite for me. Everytime I say I own a Volkswagen they ask if it's a bug....and when I tell them a golf they still think its a bug
Then when they see if theyre shocked that its not a bug

benz sells some diesels, and has sold many in the past. other manufactuers have diesel slated to come out soon, such as Jeep in their liberty if i recall correctly.
