Speaking of price, Nobody is going to pay a 3K premium for a VW currently.
The current cars on the dealer lots are moving, but an identical VW sitting on the lot in July 15 sold for a higher price then that car is selling for in July 16.
If VW matches the competition at $ and features, currently imo, 80% will chose the competition.
VW is going to lose profits going forward for a few years. Before, VW just needed to offer a car at the same price as the competition to have a hot seller. Now, VW will need to offer you more then the competition, which is going to keep profits thin for the next several years.
Funny thing is that Audi is unscratched. No price discounts for Audi vehicles.
