VW has really struggled the last 2-3 years, a lot of people blame the marketing. The MK4 Mexi-jetta reliability has really hurt their image, and the new beetle is churning sales quite like it did when it was introduced. VW USA'* boss needs to get over himself and bring over cars Directly from Europe, instead of continuing to water them down...
However Audi is really taking off in the US, and world wide. My dad'* new "attainable in the next decade" type car is the RS4, and the only two foreign cars he'* owned have been the 01 camry we have, and hte 80'* SAAB we got rid of when we moved to FL in '88.
Auto industry isn't the easiest job to keep right now, but I think within 5 years most of the companies will have gotten on the upswing again, especially the US ones. Good luck with whatever you do though
