Would you buy a Volkswagen after the scandal? (Vote)
It seems like we lived in a Jetta and Bug-loving world until a few days ago, when the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal broke.
Regardless of where you stand on climate change and clean car emissions, we can all agree that lying isn't acceptable. It's also disconcerting when the liar is a major company with an otherwise good reputation.
A quick look at the internet shows many people were not happy to find out that Volkswagen rigged its emissions tests.

Personally, the scandal makes me question the integrity of those running the company, and whether they could've lied on other tests like safety trials. So while I would still buy a Volkswagen because they've proved to be reliable for my friends and family in the past, I would make sure to read plenty of third party opinions first.
