ok i know you have all heard of it or experienced it. i know i get it all the time and it bugs the hell out of me. well now i want to know how you guys handle the issue when someone calls your beloved :b5: a daggum jetta. granted the jetta is a nice car and more widely popular among tuners, but it's still annoying. i just wanted to hear some of the ways you guys respond to this insulting bit of ignorance.

I'm with peppy. A quick Karate chop to the Adam's apple and no more calling my car a Jetta...

The inspection station guy called my car an Audi, and I did get "Nice Touareg" before I got lowered and was running 18" wheels. Other then that, people usually ask what kind of car it is.

Many Americans in general have something against Volkswagen especially those in the Southern states or rural areas. Maybe they still thinks the vdub is run by the Nazi.

These are the famous quote:
"Drivers wanted" = a car that no driver wants to drive, and wanna to get one.
"People's car" = evreyone can own means cheap.

They just need to change their advertising strategies!

I get the : "What kind of car is it?"

or : "Is it a Jetta"? :mad: (i don't even respond to that one anymore)

or: "wow, VW sure came a long way" (i kind of like that one)

and finally: after someone argued with me a while back, ok, you're right, it is much more roomier then the jettas are :lol: . :thumbup: .

I was in a pizza shop, and i saw two guys looking at my car, as they were walking in, they used these exact words, "nahh man, it's not an S4 becuase it doesn't have the wheels" "So what are you sayin, it's the A4?". I smiled, the pizza guy knows i'm german and as a joke always says "Auf Wiedersehen" and i simple reply "danke".
As i would walk to my car, i see those two staring as i get in, and when i pull off i'm sure they see the VW badge on the back...
It's best to play it cool in my books, i hate embarrasing strangers.

I correct them. One of my friends can't get used to it, and I'm ready to punch him.

"How's the Jetta doing?"
"I don't know, I HAVE A PASSAT dumbass."
