Trading in the ol' girl. Bought her when we got married. sensors and exhaust manifold is forcing the retirement. The thing handles awesome and still and gets 34 avg mpg. little rust in the hatch, looks great though. May buy the Nissan Rogue. The VW is a little narrow for regular sized guys.
Handling in snow (with winter tires), carrying capacity, acceleration, paint (red looks awesome with dark tinted windows).
electrical, sensors, rustproofing (which I heard they did), cruise for standard died early (like my old audi), factory brakes
