      Nice, VW will definitely sell more cars in 2008. But not sure how much (if any) profit it will make in 08.

      Our mkIV 20th was the european 25th, so our mkV 25th will be the european 30th.

      It's not like the gas mileage on the T&C (which this should be comparable too, right?) is really "bad."

      It's a CHRYSLER. Chrysler doesn't use a diesel in their own minivans.

      yeah, the 337 was a 2002. The 20th AE was a 2003. I'd hope we get the 25th in 2008. Lord knows the Fahrenheit was a lousy successor to the 337.

      It won't. VWoA has no plans for a TDI minivan right now.

      Not in the US. But I saw Chrysler minivans in Europe that had "Turbo Diesel" badges on them. (Which does not mean that the VW version will have a diesel engine.)
      What's the point of a Passat coupe? Big 2-door cars still don't have much room inside, and the big doors are just that much more hassle in tight parking spaces.
