In the minds of those in charge of voting for automotive awards, it seems that the new Volkswagen Jetta TDI can do no wrong. Perhaps the same can be said of new car purchasers, depending on where that buyer happens to live. Apparently, the German automaker can't keep up with demand in a number of areas because of the way the vehicles are allocated to dealerships. At least one VW employee from California who had placed his order way back in 2008 is being told he won't get his new car until late April or early May. In contrast, there is reportedly no wait at all in Washington, D.C. That unnamed employee says, "I could probably go there to buy one, but what am I going to do, drive it all the way back to California?" Think of the bright side... at least it would be a fuel efficient road trip.
