    Had dinner with a friend working in AC. The strategy to kill off the Golfs and Jettas in favor of the Chinese models hasn't paid off. They still have inventory from their first batch of chinese imports - also evidenced by the rarity of Santanas, Lavidas, Lamandos, etc on the street.

    Nothing wrong with bringing in China models. They just brought in the older ones, priced uncompetitively. A simple web search will show the models brought in are based on older platforms, and already havr replacements in China.

    They should have done what MG Philippines did - bring in the latest models and priced aggressively. I see more MG cars vs the Lavida/Santana/Lamando trio on the streets.

    MGs are lookers but ultra cheap. Pinoys are very price conscious.

    The old generation china cars they brought in were not priced competitively. They should be way cheaper.

    The Jetta was priced just right against the Civic, Altis, and the rest of the compacts. Its big advantage was its diesel engine. They should have brought more of the 1.6L model.

    Pero mukhang a decade behind ang design ng VW dito.. parang pang 90's car design.. unlike the civic and altis..

    This. Plus the fact that it is widely known VW Phils. brought in an inferior replacement to the Jetta and Golf. To me it's disrespect for your intended clientele

    The Jetta and Golf sold here around 3 years ago were in line with the generation sold globally. VW cars tend to be not too flashy in styling, much like Toyota models.

    The China-sourced models being sold now are a generation behind in platform compared to the Jetta/Golf sold 3 years ago.
