Volkswagen was founded in 1937 under the original company name "Gesellschaft zur Vorbereitung des Deutschen Volkswagens mbH". Before the 1930's, the effort to create simple vehicles that the average household could afford proved impossible, costing more than the average person's yearly income. Luckily that is not the case today. After years of tribulation, Volkswagen, which means "the people's car", has become the largest automaker in Europe. Most people asscociate the Volkswagen brand with the Beetle because of its extreme popularity world wide, as well as, being the product that VW has manufactured and sold for the longest time. But if you ask any authorized VW repair technician or VW manufacturer, you will get a long list of other types that have been and are being produced and sold all over the globe.
