Members of the popular website VWvortex.com were probably stunned to learn last month that one of the forum's contributors was actually Volkswagen of America chief Len Hunt. A thread dealing with why some VW faithful are leaving the brand sparked a debate that led the exec to speak up on behalf of his brand. His action marks the first time an auto exec has contributed to an independent forum. In a move that demonstrates the power of forums, Hunt also announced that based partly on a discussion in which he participated on VWvortex.com, VW will be offering a five-door GTI model in the U.S. a year after the three-door debuts.
This article suggests that the big wigs are certainly eavesdropping on the comments you all post. Kind of makes you wonder if they're listening right now… Hello?
