Volkswagen, or Volkswagen Group, is a German automotive company with a dark past that developed into a bright future. Rising with the financial support of the Reich in the 1930’s, Volkswagen has shed its unsavoury roots and has grown into a company that sells globally to the tune of millions of dollars.
Volkswagen is renowned for being a car that the people can trust, which is why their name, volkswagen, literally translates to “people’s car” in German. With such renowned reliability, style, and safety, why trust your Volkswagen servicing with anything but the best?

Although the name Volkswagen seems to have some democratic leanings, the name actually sprang from Nazi Germany, when Adolf Hitler commissioned Ferdinand Porsche to create a “car for the people” in 1934. This commission led to the creation of the Volkswagen Beetle or “Type 1”. At the time, cars were expensive, and fuel prices meant that any non-wealthy family couldn’t afford the strain of owning a car. It was the Reich of Nazi Germany that gave the populace access the motor vehicles, and the only mass-producer of automobiles geared towards the masses, was Volkswagen under the direction of Hitler.
By the time the war was ended however, Volkswagen enjoyed tremendous success, and was free to shed its Nazi bankrollers. In 1972, the newer VW Beetle became the most produced car of all time, beating the T model Ford’s 45 year record. The company experienced a few weak years but eventually came back strong with the Golf.
Today, Volkswagen is a renowned brand and for many people is a way of life. Every fourth car sold in Germany is a Volkswagen. The company is today known for creating high-end vehicles dedicated to the common person, such as Porsches. They boast unparalleled affordability, as well as upscaled comfort and safety features, all bundles in high-end style and aesthetic. Perhaps most impressive is that Volkswagen cars regularly rate highly for their reliability, and this is what frequently gets them featured as a family favourite. Despite their grim beginnings, Volkswagen has truly become the people’s car. And it is important that your Volkswagen mechanic gives it the love it deserves.
We’ve all got that uncle that thinks he knows how to do everything. He did a quick certificate online and now thinks he’s a master. When that uncle inevitably comes to you offering to fix your car up for a fraction of the cost of a mechanic – do NOT trust him. No one should be meddling with the insides of your vehicle unless they have a mechanics certification and years of automotive experience under their belt.
If you’ve got a Volkswagen, it’s likely that you invested in it because of the company’s reputation for creating reliable vehicles. So why would you let anyone other than the best go near it? SSC is a family owned and run Volkswagen mechanic. We have more than 20 years’ experience in the automotive industry, and we specialise in European cars.
