Just purchased this week and traded in a diesel 2005 VW Passat Sedan. Plan to hand over the keys to teenage daughter in 1.5 years as her first car. Black exterior with LX-S trim looks sweet; black cloth interior looks better than the gray. Was concerned about going from a diesel back to gas engine, but I am impressed with the acceleration the car has. Good build quality, and the entry price and nameplate could not be beaten.
LX-S wheels and black exterior paint. Well designed cabin and like the white stitching on black cloth seats.
Improve the stereo and make iPod adapter/USB port standard in every model.
