The Volkswagen was a terrible car. As for my 1980s full sized cars - they required far, far less repair and expense than any modern-day truck or SUV.

Full-size SUVs are nice, but they are very different from cars. They have frames and suspensions based on trucks, and thus ride as such. Even the so called crossovers don't ride as smoothly as a traditional large car. I have a Buick Enclave, and while it rides nicely, it is nowhere near as smooth as my Park Avenues. At least they look a lot better than any of the modern sedans!
