Drive Wire: People Are Still Buying Volkswagens
More Dieselgate news and it’s not all bad for Volkswagen this time around. Even with the diesel cheating scandal chugging along, dealers still can’t keep gas-powered VWs on the lot. Now, a shortage of sales-stock isn’t normally good news, and VW is offering heavy incentives. But this speaks well for VW brand loyalty. The automaker needs all the goodwill it can find, especially since reports claim the company is seeking $21.5 billion in short-term financing to get through the emissions crisis.
