Chicago 2011: 2012 Volkswagen Jetta GLI Brings the Euro Back

Volkswagen seems to be suffering from Alzheimers. Their best years here were when they offered unique upscale models with a slight premium in price (They also offered even more expensive versions, with features no other had turbo, w8 etc) Yes, these cars had reliability issues but really most (not all) of of the blame for this rests on dim owners and terrible dealer experiences - forcing many to have their vw serviced by nitwits - think how many issues stemmed from the wrong oil in the 1.8t. Now they are going back to what they did in the 80's where they almost disappered completelyin the US, only to re-emerge when they went to the type of car that saved them, only to return to what killed them before - maddening!
