i agree; one of the biggest selling points when i got my MKV GTI was that the american specs were all built in wolfsburg.If you see WVW in your first letters of your VIN, it is German made.
See my post in the General B5 Forum, it looks like the next Generation of Passats for the US is coming from China.
Maybe we can buy Passats at Walmart, down the road??
I'm somewhat bitter about this topic, since I'm German and I'm in the US.
The Passat was always my 1st choice car, build in Germany.,,,
Karuzas, I am not sure, but I would suspect, that this has nothing to do with the point of building, but with the fact, that VW's HQ is in Wolfsburg...Second question: are all wolfsburg editions (i guess for jettas as well) built in wolfsburg; or is that nothing more than badging and certain options - regardless of where it is built?
