12 years ago, I bought this car for my wifes birthday. Now, I drive it to work. My 83 mile commute is a blast. Even though the car has 162000 miles on it, it still gets up to 90 when I pass. I have only spent about 1000 in parts over the past 5 years. My total cost per mile is about $0.17 over the lifetime of the car. It still gets 27 miles per gallon. I could not be happier with this vehicle.

I have owned my TSI for 10 years now and have no serious complaints. It has been a very reliable car; virtually zero problems with no time in the shop except for routine maintenance. It's very peppy and fun to drive with a nice firm handling suspension unusual in large American cars of the time. Both the interiors and exteriors barely show their age and it is still a stylish new looking car after all these years.
The 3.5-liter engine, formerly exclusive to the TSi, is now available on the ESi. Automatic transmission refinements are intended to improve shifting. Eagle Vision ESi gets an improved stereo. A new color, Deep Amethyst Pearl, is now available.
