    Hi Andrea! I´ve got your point and because my life philosophy is peace of mind (hate polemics) and be kind and correct to everybody, I would like to point out that when a say, and I´m going to quote the sentece you wrote “but too much VW propaganda” is due to same topic lines all about refering to VW and sometimes ignoring the other marques that have excellent sales all over the world such as Ford, Opel – G.M., Toyota, Nissan, Renault and so many other. I confess that I´m sick and tired of the VW group and I assure you that here in my country, Portugal, this marque is bad connected, was regarded as a disapointement (VW reliability is quite poor and what saves the marque is the tradition and the name image created a long time ago) in spite of beeing second best selling marque, ( a paradox) this only because the prices are quite attractive and a golf VI is cheaper here than a Focus or Mégane and we are through a huge economical and social crisis, almost in bankropt as Greece is. About the Italians be proud of their cars I still think they are not! The French are 100% chauvinistics and proud of their Renaults Peugeots and Citroens but the Italians aren´t at all about Fiat, Alfa and mainly lancia due to the problems these marques offered in the seventies and eigthies. Now the marques made fine cars that can compete with the Japanese, Germans or americans. As a Alfa fan since my childhood and my favourite car of all times is teh Alfa Giulia GT bertone which a rated as the worlds most beautiful car from all angles, I ´d like to see Italians give premacy to the Alfa 159 instead of the Audi A4, bmw serie 3 or Ford Mondeo or buying more lancias Deltas instead of Golfs. Everything imported from Germany is a must in Italy! You have to make sure and realize once for all times that you can do the same or better than other foreign products!!

    Hi Miguel,

    first of all let me state one thing clearly: I don’t want and don’t need to attack anyone, nor to be polemic :) I’m simply expressing my thoughts, just like you and any other people visiting this great website. I’ll take that “my idea is absurd”, but your statement “… but too much VW propaganda!!! It´s a fact.” led me to write whatever I wrote… of course, I may have just misunderstood.

    I’m Italian, yes, and (quite) proud of it and of the cars our lovely country churns out, but could you please explain better what you mean? I love Alfa Romeo as well and would consider to buy a Fiat if Fiat built the car that suits my requests best (which I did, actually – I own a Panda), but everyone has different tastes and needs… and anyway, Fiat is still the market leader in Italy and (I think) will always be. Let me know if you meant something different, I’ll be happy to reply.

    Andrea, with all respect, I just have two things to tell you: Obviously is not matt´s fault and I did not mention or even think about it. Your idea is absurd! The other, I supposed you´re Italian by the “Ciao” in the end, so I wonder, many years ago, why the Italians are not proud of their automobiles like the Germans, French, Americans, Japanese or Sweden!!!!!! You have great marques with charisma and history but prefer the foreig products! My favourite marque is Italian, is Alfa romeo since my childhood but honestely I feel quite sad to notice that this marque do not have acceptation in its own country!!! Be proud of your cars. Preserve your industry in actual crisis times.

    @Miguel Figueira
    Propaganda? Is it Matt’s fault (if we can speak of “faults” here) if people all over Europe keep buying Volkswagen?

    He just does an awesome work in collecting datas, arranging them and giving out information, but I don’t think I ever heard him push VW in any other way then mentioning the Golf is #1, or whatever.

    … As I already told you and forgive me if I´m repetitive, I´m a special fan of your site; good information, superior graphics, photos, presentation… but too much VW propaganda!!! It´s a fact.

    Well Matt, I think we are free to comment, or aren´t we?? I agree with you concerning to costumers choice but concerning to be reliable and weel designed I´m not at all! VW is one of the least reliable marques, see http://www.reliabilityindex.com. Audi is not strong in terms of reliability and design…?? Skoda suffers from a very weak legacy and Seat is a disaster!

    Two markets in Europe are monopolised by VW: the Swiss and Austrian. VW must have shares in those countries.

      Hi Miguel,
      You seem to make the same comment every month about VW being successful in Switzerland and Austria. How about it is because the consumers in these country appreciate the brand because they think their cars are reliable and well designed?
