      We've been watching sales figures for the domestic automakers tank this morning, but it's good to see that Volkswagen is staying relatively flat despite double-digit decreases from the Big Three. Even subtracting the new sales that came from Tiguan, VW managed to outpace its sales year-to-date from 2007, if even by a few hundred units. - Wes
      HERNDON, Va.— Volkswagen of America, Inc. today announced June 2008 sales of 23,208 units, a 0.3 percent increase over the June 2007 sales of 23,137 vehicles. On a year-to-date basis, 2008 Volkswagen sales remain 0.6 percent ahead of 2007 sales through June.
      June reflects Volkswagen’s best sales month since August 2006. The Passat wagon had its best sales month since January 2007 with sales up 25.9 percent over June 2007. Volkswagen’s innovative coupe-convertible-sunroof Eos continues to be a summertime top-seller with sales of 1,632 unites, up 14 percent over last June.

      Indeed this makes me laugh at all of the Doomsday Prophets in the Car Lounge who have been saying that VW in America will be finished in 5 years. Funny thing is, they've been saying that for 6-7 years.......

      I want to see VW sales figures soon once the Jetta SportWagen and TDI models are available for sale...

      Jetta down 11 %
      Rabbit down 18 %
      GTI down 18 %
      What's up with that? These are the cars I'd most expect to do well, but they are down.
      Also, from Bloomberg: Prius down 34%
      Toyota ran out of batteries.

      We must thank the tiguan and R32, that weren´t available last year, because the regular models (jetta, Rabbit, GTI) are going down in sales...

      Jetta/GTI are going on 5 MY old so its about that time for sales to start slowing. Sales of MKIV started slowing in '03 or ~5 years after introduction. MKVI is around the corner.

      Volkswagen may be a mass-market brand in the Old Country but they're doing a good job as a niche brand in North America.
