I have been roaming the message boards and have noticed in the 21st Century Beetle forum that many people are having a lot of the same issues as those who have ordered GLI's. (looong delays on ordered cars, no communication from dealers, conflicting info, etc.) Both are built in Puebla.
Do you think there is something serious going on at the Puebla plant causing these delays? It is putting a bad taste in a LOT of peoples mouths and is resulting in them deciding on other models over the ones they originally chose out of frustration and anger. Does VWoA not care as long as the customer still buys something? I can only assume that it can do nothing but hurt not only the GLI and Beetle brands but the VW brand as a whole. I know i'm considering canceling my GLI order for a GTI or even something outside of VW altogether.
What do you think?
