Volkswagen Beetle original vintage advertisement. Why so many
Volkswagens live to be 100,000. The pistons in a VW travel a
shorter distance per mile than almost any other car in the world.
That means less wear. Continuity in making the same basic model
year after year has led to VW's quality of assembly, the kind
that a $5,000 car would be proud of; to say nothing of a car
that sells for $1,565.
