I was at the dealership yesterday when they announced the Chattanooga
site. They are planning on a totally new vehicle somewhere in size
BETWEEN the Jetta and the Passat! I don't understand exactly what
that means since the current Jetta is about the size of a older B4
Passat but that is the purpose of the plant. Only vehicles they are
really loosing money on in a big way right now are the German built
Passat and German built Golf GTIs and Wolfsburgs and Jetta Wagons and
Wolfsburgs. Virtually everything else is coming to us from Brazil or
Mexico. Jetta is the top seller for VW in the US. That is why the
new TDI engines are coming in the Jettas first. Hayden

" Those who are willing to sacrifice Liberty for Security, deserve
neither Liberty nor Security." Ben Franklin
"Dictatorships all have common factors: a government controlled by
one party, a leader who claims to have special powers outside the law
to keep the country "safe", secret prisons where people are locked up
without charges or trial and government opponents are branded as
unpatriotic and charged with aiding the enemy."
