We absolutely love this vehicle. It fits both of our kids (with car seats), our dog, and several adults comfortably. The memory seats are great, being that my husband and I have almost a foot difference in height. Does not drive quite as well as our Saab 9-3, but definitely more like a sedan than expected. Also like that insurance barely increased (and prior vehicle was 99 Passat).
Navigation (I have no sense of direction so this has been great for me) and the aux iPod player. My husband loves the built in XM - now he can finally listen to the Red Sox here in Philly.
Gas mileage; full size spare; availability of autotailgate without entertainment package - as we did not want dvd player for our kids.
