I can't understand VW way of thinking.
Why Canadian market is always the last when it comes to VW products that are offered abroad.. Not only we get stripped cars with lousy options, but launching of new products is late then US.. For cried out loud small islands like TRinidad getting better choices and more options then Canada !!! Where is the logic here ? Are we really that bad customers. VW if you be treating us like that no wonder you be loosing more customers like us one by one
