Volkswagen is a leading German automaker. Volkswagen was established in 1937 in Germany. Volkswagen translates to "People’s Automobile" in German. The "people’s car" project, which brought the classic Beetle to the world, was actually the idea of Adolf Hitler, who wanted a mass-produced, cheap vehicle for the average German who could not afford a car in the 1930s.
The classic Volkswagen Beetle was manufactured for 65 years, making the number of Beetles created over twenty-one million.
Volkswagen's most reported problem on RepairPal is associated with shifting issues on some Volkswagen Jetta models.
