The video prompted a discussion about why hijackers and criminals target VW cars the most.

Phillipr62 said:

“Government must limit the scrap yards that are selling used car parts, and they must have laws to control this.”

Kaylerblele remarked:

“In SA, It’s a sin to drive the car you love.”

Andrew was angry.

“Vote this kaak out. The problem with SA is we keep voting those old leaders while their assignment is to secure their grandchildren, not SA.”

Elton@$ exclaimed:

“Then we’ll see one grootman with a City Golf rocking Golf 8 parts going for R250,000.”

Toobserve&settherecordstraight was confused:

“How did they strip it in the street, and no one said anything?”


“Why did you buy a VW? Before buying a car, research the car you want to buy before getting your friends and fam killed.”

Edwin Van Wyk was livid.

“The government is the root. They were supposed to take action against this kind of crime the day the first cars were stolen.”

Lekgothoanenorman added:

"Never post your new cars. You’ll never know who is watching. After buying it, go home and don’t use it for a month.”
