And the VW jokes have started

I just got a Volkswagen; saw the news when I got home.

I am fuming.

---------------------------------------

Thanks to Volkswagen I'm now even starting to doubt if Herbie was a true story.

---------------------------------------

Shareholders have told the directors of Volkswagen to personally improve their testing of fuel emissions.

It involves a closed garage door and a hose pipe.

VW has been the butt of "Check Engine Light" jokes for years.




They just don't seem to allocate enough of their R&D for emissions.

Au contraire... their solution seems to have been quite inventive.

Mine works fine no light 30 mpg and almost 50 yrs old no jokes here. Scary that an old car like this still runs and gets almost as good mileage as a new one.

I asked my friend if he could lend me a $100 till payday as it was my girlfriends birthday and I would like to get her a present.

"Yeah sure, I know you're good for it, should get a decent present with a $100. " He said.

"Yes, " I replied, "I'm going to get her a used Volkswagen Golf. "
