    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    I saw one of these on the freeway today on my way to work. Even from far away, I could tell that it was basically a Chrysler minivan with VW badges stuck on the front. I looked it up and not only is it made by Chrysler, but so too is the engine and drivetrain. There's hardly anything VW about it. It's really and truly just a Chrysler minivan with VW badges!

    The thing that pisses me off is that out here in the Bay Area, a lot of the yuppie type families love buying VW's, Audis, and Bimmers. I KNOW people like this would never-ever consider a Chrysler product let alone a Chrysler minivan. But since it has the shiny VW badge, well golly it must be better! Stupid shmucks.

    I dont like the fact that VW is using one of the Big 3 to do their work. Porsche makes the Touareg and Routan( i think)

    Beetle
    Golf
    Eos
    Scirocco
    Jetta
    Rabbit

    Ok, It's nit-picking but it was the Isuzu Ascender, not Suzuki. Hell, Isuzu made the Chevy LUV pickup years and years ago. I think it was the first time that those letters started to stand for something. Chevy LUV = Light Utility Vehicle. Everything under the hood was marked Isuzu or had Japanese writing.
