people prob say there are differences but i dont think so.... do german people build better things??? even in germany it is still a crappy assemebly line job that they prob dont take great pride in... just like the americans building cars here or the mexicans building our cars there... niether of them get insentives(sp?) to build a greater car. would you do a better job if nobody noticed the quality of work you were doing... no baecause you just dont care. bottom line, the germans dont care, the mexicans dont care
big dub, i bagged a differ. i feel that in Germany they take great pride in their work. and same in Mexico. doenst matter where the car is built cuz VW still has to ensure that the quality is better then competitors. if you look at the leather seats for instance, VW has no bunching while all American cars will have some.
now no, i dont think there are any differences between built in Wolfsburg and built in Mexico.
Personally, I made sure both my motors came from Germany, but the final assembly wasn't as important to me. My NB was asembled in mexico, and my GTI in Germany. The only thing I have noticed is that my panels seem to be lined up a little tighter than the beetles, but that could be because they are making 50 billion beetles a day. I don't think they are going to see significant differences in build quality, but keep in mind that the german employees typically will be more educated and higher paid than the mexican counterpart.

ok... maybe they do take pride in there work but if they dont and no one notices we still end up getting door panels and and dashes that rattle like a mofo... i dont think our complaints actually go to the assembly line in mexico and germany and the workers get fired
When I worked for BMW ,I was told that in our country we received the shitty models.I coundn't believe that!The ones we get here in the U.S.A. are slower and not as well built as the german counterparts.
I personally think that VW that are made in Germany are definately better then the once in made in Mexico or Brazil. I do not have the facts to prove it but I'd rather have a German build it then a Mexican but that has to do with the working conditions also. The factories are different over there then they are here or in Mexico or Brazil. Germany is one of the top leading countries in the world while Brazil and Mexico are considered more Poor. But then again I might be wrong but that is just my opinion.
Well unfortunately, I did not have a choice for mine. I got the last 2000 on the lot, if I was to get a 2001 my payments would have been quite a bit higher. But it almost seems obvious to go with the German made one, but aren't the cast majority of them from Mexico?
yeah if i had to choose i would get a german built but thats just because vw... germany.. german built... makes sense but i bet the german built ones have just as many problems as mexican or brazilian built VWs
my dad got a X-5... all the parts were form germany but assembled in the US.. ha now talk about crappy workers that dont care about what they are doing
i believe the only cars that we received that were actually built in germany were the wolfburgs edition and the de's all the other ones were built in mexico except for the vr6's which were built in brazil. No matter which you have they are imo all built to the same specs
I dont think it matters where your car is made.. its a VW ppl.... OK... they all look the same... mine was made in mexico and im sure the little men and women take lots of pride in their jobs because hey... the will never have to worry about losing their jobs as long as us crazy kids keep buying dubz...where your dubby was made should not change how much you love it right!
