When English isn’t your first language…

A dealership in Rochester, NY had a brand-new, German-built Volkswagen arrive for its pre-sales inspection, and with it came a little message. A message that wasn’t exactly grammatically correct, but the meaning behind it was unmistakable. The message? “Welcome Fuck of USA.”

I’m pretty sure the message-enterer wanted to say “Fuck off USA” instead of “Fuck of USA,” but I think we get the gist either way…I’m pretty sure this message will be changed before any potential customers get a chance to even look at the car.

Unless it’s not the only one.

    What will happen to those many thousand VWs that don’t meet US emissions standards? I have seen pictures of them sitting near a dock. How is this one different, and could the others be modified?

      I think this one is “fresh stock” and VW’s new software is being verified/tested by EU to check if legit, now. Stockpile of returned (for dollar$) cars will mostly get software updates and resold. Probably not in the US, I’ll bet.
