How to buy a used Volkswagen near me?

“Volks-Wagen” means “People’s car” in German. The idea of an affordable and simple car was made into the project by Porsche and Daimler Benz back in 1934. The Volkswagen company was registered in 1937 and the Volkswagen auto manufacturing plant was founded a year later at Fallersleben, Germany. By 1947 Volkswagen presented the first Beetle prototype at the Hannover Auto Fair. Since then the triumphant march of VW Beetle started quickly taking over automotive markets around the World with VW Beetle sold increasingly in North America and manufactured in Brazil, Mexico and South Africa. By 1974, total production of VW Beetle surpassed those of Ford Model T, making Volkswagen Beetle the World's most popular car.

Nowadays the Volkswagen is one of the many brands owned by German automaker Volkswagen AG. Volkswagen cars are well known for reliability, durability and advanced engineering. Back in the 90s VW added more upscale model lines to the traditional financially affordable ones. Today Volkswagen with popular cars and SUV is one of the major players on the North American automotive market. These vehicles are not cheap at all though they’re definitely not Bentleys or Rolls-Royces. Price for a new Volkswagen may really exceed your expectations, making buying the new VW car a real pain.

  • particularly very expensive transmission repairs
  • car needs expensive reprogramming every time you take it to fix
