No real Volkswagen?
The VW Scirocco is a very popular car of the Volkswagen brand. Yet many experts say it is not a true Volkswagen, why is that? This has everything to do with the location where the first car of this type was produced. It concerns the Fa. Karmann
in Osnabrück. This means that the car was not made in a real Volkswagen factory. The first generation of this type of Volkswagen appeared on the market in 1974. Eight years later, in 1982 the second generation appeared, which was available until 1992. A third generation of this type was released in 2008 as a hatchback.
Different types of damage to a VW Scirocco windscreen
There may be various types of damage to the VW Scirocco windscreen. The nature of the damage always depends on the situation it causes. An accident can, for example, cause you to have to deal with a completely shattered car window. Is there a bird or a swan flying at high speed against your windscreen? This can lead to a major crack. In both of the above cases, replacing your windscreen is, in principle, the only way to solve the damage. However, the windscreen replacement of your VW Scirocco is not always a requirement. Is there, for example, an asterisk in the windscreen of your Volkswagen? In that case it can be repaired much more easily.
Same bottom plate as other Volkswagens
Another nice fact is that the VW Scirocco I had the same base plate as several other Volkswagens. The bottom plate was the same as that of the VW Golf
I and the VW Jetta
. This makes it immediately clear to many connoisseurs that the first Scirocco was built on platform A1. It was also a front-wheel drive version with a four-cylinder engine on board. The cylinder capacity can vary from 1.1 to 1.6 litres. The latter was only available in the Gti version.
