    VW to build factory in US?

    http://www.wral.com/business/local_t...story/2310368/

    Automotive Week, Business Week magazine and Bloomberg all said in recent days that Volkswagen could soon announce plans for a U.S. factory. Both the Carolinas as well as Georgia and Kentucky are in the running, they said.

    Economically, this is probably a good move for VW -- when the dollar is low, invest, so that when the dollar rises sometime in the future, you're not importing products that get built & costed under Euros.

    Building a factory here is a good reversal from the rumor a few months ago that they were considering pulling out of the US market.

    They'll probably build the Golf-based crossover vehicle here.
