UK VW owner makes his complaint heard

A fellow blogger and TDI friend, Jon Fry (his blog), from the UK sent me an interesting email with a news link about a young man that
Anthony Ashtonpurchase a VW Polo TDI and had a few problems. I’m not endorsing anyone in the US attempt to document problems in this way, but it is interesting to see how effective using the internet can be when one has a grudge. This particular problem was picked up by a local paper, the Manchester Evening News, and they relayed the saga in this past Saturday’s paper. It seems that Anthony Ashton took it upon himself to record a video clip describing the issues he had with the car and posted the video on YouTube. Believe it or not, this questionable quality video has generated over 33,000 viewings to date!
