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 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.

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.

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.
