Most of the utility of a mini-SUV (the
part you'll utilize anyway). Three
times cheaper gas bill (I've calculated
it). Really intelligent standard
features and options. Great looks.
More fun to drive than you'd ever
expect - as long as you opt for
standard trans. (The automatic kills
the fun!) Superior crash test results
and safety features. Sweet little
engine that'll make you question why
all cars don't have a turbodiesel
option, and never again want to buy one
Did I mention 43 MPG? (calculated in
mixed driving) Did I mention diesel
costs less than that stuff you put in
your lawnmower? Great looks inside and
out. Great ergonomic design. Peppy
acceleration. YES, THIS ECONO-CAR HAS
A bit wider stance to offer more
interior room would be nice (coming in
2006 from what I hear). Suede cloth
seats attract lent better than a lent-
roller. Can VW do anything about lower
sulfur content in U.S. diesel brands?
Probably just need to sell more TDIs.
