Though the SES is very sharp looking, gets pretty good MPG (though a friend's TDI Passat at twice the size gets just as good MPG) it has many flaws and I honestly wish I hadn't bought this car.
The 6 speed auto trans had to be reprogrammed, I'm reading about those who had to get new trans and I'm nervous since I'm 2K miles out of warrantee.
I can't enter or exit a driveway with any grade without scraping.
I can't see though the back window due to the read hear rests, no center console creates right arm fatigue.
The AC vents blow right on my hands creating aches.
At 5'11" I sit way too low, the back seat is basically worthless and SYNC is an abomination.
I'm an unhappy camper.
