Santa Ana, CA, August 15, 2012 - Volkswagen continues to be committed to industry-leading
growth in 2012, and Commonwealth Volkswagen in California has demonstrated that
commitment by leading sales among other VW dealerships in the United States. The Santa Ana
Volkswagen dealer ranked fourth in overall sales for the month of July and was in the top ten for
highest Passat sales.

“We are dedicated to providing an exceptional customer service at Commonwealth Volkswagen,”
says Commonwealth VW General Manager Mike Westbrook. “As we focus on the customer by
offering an exceptional buying experience, we continue to see an increase in sales thanks to our
happy and loyal VW drivers.”

Commonwealth Volkswagen was a national leader in net sales this July, ranking fourth among its
U.S. peers and posting an 11% increase over last year. The Orange County dealership also led
the company in July as a top-ten Passat dealer based on net sales for the model. Overall, this was
the best month for Passat sales in its history. Volkswagen shares that inventory of the Passat is
strong and their pipeline volume is aligned to deliver even greater Passat sales in August.

Overall, Volkswagen has set an aggressive goal to achieve volume growth each month in 2012.
The Volkswagen brand sold 37,014 units in July which was up 27.3% versus July 2011. Year-to-
date the brand is up 34.1% and with plans for strong incentives, Autobahn for All and increased
media participation, Volkswagen is optimistic about continued sales through the end of the year.
