So VW doesn’t want to give us cars
When we last asked for a VW for a test drive, the PR guy mumbled something about the magazines getting priority. It pissed me off enough to ignore them for the next few months. We figured we’d ask them again anyway, and this time they replied with their misguided policies in writing:
While we appreciate your continued interest in test driving Volkswagen vehicles, our test driving policy stipulates that priority is granted to publications in the first degree due to the demand and availability of
the vehicles for such activities. We hope that you can understand our reservations and look forward to continuing on updating you with information from Volkswagen.
Well, that’s the end of that. I guess having more users per month than any of the local magazines is not enough if certain people still don’t know how to use the internet.
Funnily enough, our online counterparts at AutoMiddleEast gets to go to overseas VW trips, even though they have a fraction of our visitor count. Good for them. We are not going to ask for VW/Audi test drives ever again.
Of course, I could still rent one myself and write about it. Oh, the fun I will have writing that review!
