It was a VW add slogan.

Fahrvergnügen

It is a German compound word using variants of "Fahren" (to travel, to drive, etc) and Vergnügen (to enjoy, take pleasure in..etc) in this context, Fahrvergnügen could be translated as "the joy of driving" or the "enjoyment of driving"
SO, driving a VW gives you joy, you should buy one!

many of us understand the "joy of shooting", but be careful how you spell it (especially in German) get the "i" and the "e" in the wrong order and it becomes "the joy of taking a dump", which is also a pleasure, but a QUITE different thing.

Learning to properly pronounce words in a foreign language is something most Americans don't do. Of course, most Americans don't properly pronounce many words in English, either...
