This car is in no way similar to the diesels my dad drove; gone are the days of turning off the air conditioning to get up the hills on the freeway. The harder you push this diesel the more refined it sounds. It seems to have a deep well of power and torque that never stops pleasing. I love this car!
Exceptional build quality; unreal power and torque for a diesel; attractive body styling; The ESP system works wonderfully in the snow and ice.
Scratch the integrated computer/audio/navigation/light/etc. system. The system is too confusing and when it breaks (and it will eventually) it will be multi-system failure. Also, don't put fine upholstery in the door jams!?! Drives me crazy trying to keep those clean. Needs larger gas filler neck.
