Now that the tide went out on VW and everyone knows they were swing naked, we might know why the so called small "clean diesels" aren't coming our way.
I must admit, I never imagined a company could affect the perception of an entire nation because of their stupid actions, but VW and Audi have managed to do it. Not only are Americans down on VW, they are increasingly down on Germany in general. Maybe it's the hangover memories of WWII and the deep seeded lack of trust in the back of peoples minds, who knows. VW and Audi be damned! You have affected the world perception of Germany and all the products they produce; whether that perception is justified or not.
