VW voice command fix


Get a 2011 or wait for a 2012?

Here is a model by model breakdown of my recommendations:

Jetta: No reason to wait for a 2012 unless you want an S model with a sunroof

Golf: Get a 2011 model unless you REALLY want a TDI with the new LED daytime running lamps

Tiguan: Tiguan is getting a facelift so check out the new 2012 model in person before making a decision. However, The 2012 gets 29 MPG!

CC: 2012 is nice but you can score 0% on a 2011!

Routan: 2012 model won’t be out till  late fall and there are awesome incentives on the 2011s right now

Touareg:  Too rich for your blood? wait for 2012 and there is a new less expensive (not by much)  trim level coming

GTI:  wait ONLY if you are shopping for an Autobahn package with the new wheels and LED DRLs

Jetta SportWagen: Get a 2011

EOS: its new and fresh for 2012
