Intersetting comment about driving a VW on the highway. The only time I evr got, or get nervous is when pulling out with my 40hp Karmann Ghia, and my '67 microbus. Most 'NEWer' drivers do not know that we move slower on take off then they do.
My microbus has a license plate frame that states '0 to 60 in a day or so'. Sort of makes the point that this is not a rocket.
Think about this. Most mirocars are 2 seaters. All VW's seat at least 4 just like a BIG domestic car! Of course the rear seat may be a bit cramped for normal sized adults.
I still support the possible move back to production classes for VW's.
