    I have driven other car brands, but VW & Audi surpases them all in confort and road stability. You can be driving @ 200km/hr and the car will look as if its travelling @ 80km/hr

    I beg to differ with the article Automotive Products Limited were VW’s previous dealers. Find out.

  5. Benzo says:

    I thought Automotive Products has been the VW dealers in Malawi? When was dealership given to CFAO? Is it because there is no white man at Automotive Products. I smell racism of highest order.

    Good news to hear that, we will be getting spares very close than to go to south Africa. Manufacture please take this complain! Your cars are very good but door handles are not strong I have to fixe door handles every three to four months, please improve on door handles.

    VW has opened an office, I was waiting to hear that VW have opened a car manufacturing plant in Malawi. Office? Malawians we still have a long way to go. Office? Anyway half loaf is better than none. By the way, where is the office? Though we know we know very well that it can’t be in Mzuzu. Since everything starts in the south and after ten years goes to Mzuzu.

    Kkkkkkkkkkkkkk,what is this?Automotive products were the guys who have been servicing my vw so where is cfao coming from?bwinotu bwino.

  9. Masoambeta says:

    Malawians are used to cheap recycled Japanese vehicles. The comfort of a VW will be a plausible introduction. CFAO crooks will sell to rip everyone off.

    Zofunika zimenezo…ma spare parts azipezeka pafupi. Trully VWs are trustworthy cars…top class vehicles amene popangidwa amaikapo mtima. That’s great VW

  11. charlie hebdo says:

    What does this franchise mean when we already have Automotive Products Ltd franchising VW? Pls let me understand coz when Toyotas are sold elswhere in Malawi like at Speedys Ltd, Toyota Malawi makes noise by posting adverts labelling other sellers as unofficial. I donno, somebody needs to educate me on this..

  16. noka says:

    but you must be told the truth, Malawians are broke. didn’t you heard we are the poorest of the poor. only politicians will be buying.

  17. What happens to Automotive Products Ltd? Dealers are very expensive.

  18. fkr says:

    100% duty. who is going to buy a new. we can only afford other people’s second hand junk. apply 30% duty across the board.

  19. wanda says:

    It does not ring a bell to poor Malawians. You guys sell your cars at most exorbitant prices once you bring your cars here compared to prices at your home country. Only the very rich guys will smile, not poor people. Why not bringing irrigation materials for us farmers to buy and use in our fields? Nonsense!!!

    Welcome!

  22. Welcome to the poorest country.

  23. Peter Muthanyula says:

    Why bring luxury cars to the poorest country in the world? We need tractors and wheelbarrows, not VW Polo or Golf.
