    Yes in first 6 months of 2015, by only 20,000 units. They never hit the number one spot for a full year. Rest of 2015, game over for VW.

    "Stop sale" currently in place for used/new TDI's at VW US dealers, so they can't even play pricing game on something they can't sell. And the 2016 TDI's (not approved for sale in US) are also...
