Just putting "world's #1" is really misleading here. Before I clicked on the links I kept asking myself "VW is the world's #1 what?" and "GM is still the world's #1 what?"

Top automaker is good for profit margins I guess, but I'd rather have the title "world's safest car".

1) Toyota does make boring cars
2) VW makes fun cars. But their reliability is constantly rated near the bottom among other manufacturers.

I have a 2009 GTI I've had no issues with it what so ever

GTI 2008- (TSI engine)
Golf 2007-
Have the best records as far a reliability but they are made in Germany (parts and all).
The Passat and (think) Jetta are made here...and part Mexico.

That was VW of old.....VW since adding on Porshe to their family knows the importance of reliabilty.I think they learned a costly mistake a few years ago.

One boring car company replaced by another boring car company? I'm beginning to question the world's taste in cars....
