The all-new 2011 Jetta continued its blistering pace, matching the company's best all-time result with sales of 3,058, a significant improvement on last April's total of 1,065. Year to date, the Jetta is up by a remarkable 180%.

Not to be outdone, sales of 633 Tiguan compact sport utilities added depth to the results. The Golf family, including the hatchback, wagon and sporty GTI also chipped in with 1,337 finding their way into customers' driveways during the month.

The "Volksfest" sales program brought significant traffic to the showroom floor and will continue through the month of June.
