VW's Growth Plan Hits a Snag

Volkswagen (NASDAQOTH: VLKAY  ) is halfway through a 10-year plan with an audacious goal: To surpass Toyota (NYSE: TM  ) and General Motors (NYSE: GM  ) to become the largest-selling automaker in the world.

In this video, Fool.com contributor John Rosevear looks at VW's latest plan to turn that around -- and at why the German giant's efforts might leave it even further behind its rivals.

    I had the worse experience leasing a VW Jetta from camelback VW in Phoenix, Az. I had to get a lawyer to straighten out the mess . Pathetic way of doing business. So I'm not surprised their sales are going backwards . Of course many dealerships are dishonest. When big banks are involved in the lending trouble ensues.
