This review doesn't go that far. They liked the VW, just not as much as the MME.I mean, it seems as a whole the car review community has deemed the ID.4 a "miss" by VW.
Yeah, I have the Acura RDX with the touch pad controller, and I think it's great, yet every damned reviewer said it's too hard to figure out, too fiddly, etc. It's literally "plunk your finger down and the orange highlight appears."-SNIPPED- I like them just fine. The same is said about the Acura RDX, which we shopped against the QX50. Reviewers had a hard time figuring out the touch pad controller. It worked well for my wife and me. ?
This line in the article is amusing to those on this forum ?AutoBlog likes the Mach E better. ?
As a multiple VW owner, I feel personally attacked lol (I'm kidding)I have had a lot of VWs in the past, and each one had massive problems of stuff that just shouldn't have been an issue. I was "this close" to swearing them off forever, and then DieselGate happened, and that completely pushed me over the edge. Incompetence I can get over. Outright intentional deceit, nope.
BURN IT ALL DOWN.As a multiple VW owner, I feel personally attacked lol (I'm kidding)
To be fair though, VW weren't the only ones. They just got the most negative press over it. Volvo, Renault, Jeep, Hyundai, Citroen, Fiat were all wrapped up in the same thing in 2014. It was later found out in an ongoing investigation that BMW and Dahlmer-Chrysler (before they sold to Fiat) were also doing the same thing. GM and Nissan were caught in 2015.
There's a long standing history of it too. Even Ford in 1997 had to pay damages for cheating emissions standards on their Econoline vans. In 1973 several companies cheated emissions by lying about fuel enrichment to beat sensors.
You're not wrong. I have a 73 Beetle currently rusting under a tarp that doesn't run (I have plans to bastardize it by cutting the roof off and making it a roadster) and my daily is a 2016 GTI that although has been flawless for me, the service costs are pretty shockingly high.BURN IT ALL DOWN.
No, I get it. I had a 1987 Wolfsburg Jetta that cost me more in repairs than it did in monthly payments. Then I had a Passat which had a major engine failure about 10,000 miles outside of warranty. Then I had a CC which was a SWEET car, except for a constant WUB-WUB-WUB from the poor wheel alignment issues that could never be fixed. I killed that one in a crash. When I went to replace it, I talked to my VERY WELL KNOWN service manager at that point and asked her about maintenance costs on one of the Touregs and she quietly pulled me aside and listed thousands of dollars of what to expect with it, and I'm like "NOPE" and went next door to Honda and bought an Accord Hybrid which has 150,000 miles on it and has needed nothing but oil changes. (Knock on wood.) My kid drives it now.
