About Volkswagen of America, Inc.

Volkswagen of America, Inc. recently announced Electronic Stabilization

Program (ESP) as standard equipment on all its 2009 model year vehicles. As

a result, Volkswagen is one of the only original equipment manufacturers to

offer an electronic stabilization control system on its entire product line

-- ahead of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA)

deadline requiring stabilization systems in the 2012 model year vehicles.

Volkswagen's ESP technology works in conjunction with anti-lock brakes and

helps reduce loss of control, rollovers and other types of crashes. NHTSA

predicts nearly 10,000 lives could be saved each year if all vehicles had

stabilization systems as standard equipment.
