VW Jettas: Official auto of the digerati?

Summary:After reading Wayne Cunningham's blog on thejettareport.com, it's clear to me that tech centers like Silicon Valley, Seattle, Austin, New York, and Boston  must be filled with Cheech & Chong-like smoke filled Volkswagen Jettas.

After reading Wayne Cunningham's blog on thejettareport.com, it's clear to me that tech centers like Silicon Valley, Seattle, Austin, New York, and Boston  must be filled with Cheech & Chong-like smoke filled Volkswagen Jettas.  According to Cunningham, compared to BMW-driving nerds like him, Jetta owners are:

  • 156 percent more likely to have downloaded music
  • 110 percent more likely to chat online
  • 153 percent more likely to use email
  • 87 percent more likely to agree that marijuana should be legalized.
I owned a Jetta before I bought my current car (a Pontiac Vibe that I would never, in a million years, recommend to anyone).  That's about all I have to say.
