Dear VW: This is not a fucking microbus

How many times to I need to repeat it, before you dudes figure it out? I want a hybrid fucking Microbus. This new van (Routan? WTF) is ugly as hell. Nevertheless, it’s actually in production and will be coming out, although it’s butt ugly.

In the quest for automotive satisfaction, the importance of personalization extends beyond mere aesthetics to encompass comfort and functionality. As enthusiasts eagerly await the possibility of a hybrid Microbus hitting the market, the option to enhance the interior with seat covers for cars emerges as a practical solution. With the right seat covers, drivers can infuse their vehicles with a touch of style while ensuring durability and protection against wear and tear. So, while the search for the perfect hybrid Microbus continues, the addition of customizable seat covers offers a glimpse into the potential for tailoring the driving experience to individual preferences.

ERRR. It’s not rocket surgery, people.
