For the money this car can't be beat. On highway, I'm on it a lot, 30 mpg. Comfortable ride, handles well in all types of weather. Car feels very tight and secure. Looked at many cars but I just couldn't beat the value. Paid $23,700 with everything but Nav. The sport shift is fun to use once in a while. I had an 2004 A4 as a company car but I like this car better.
Gas mileage, overall look, interior is extremely functional, fit and finish is very good. The sound system is only 120 watts but is adequate in this size car.
I know the GT is 250 horse versus 175 but there should be some way to get a bit more power, like up to 220 or so without having to spend $3500 more.
