So far I love my car! I bought this after driving a 1991 Toyota Land Cruiser to 330,000 miles, but needed a more fuel efficient car for my commute @ 90 miles/day. This has been a great little car, I average 50.5mpg per 15 gal tank - highway and city driving combined. It has a decent amount of pick up and go and it's a TON of fun to drive! The only real complaint I have is that it isn't completely sealed and it whistles > 45 mph, it doesn't leak water,just bothersome. The seats fold pretty flat and the cargo area can hold ~3 large bales of hay + 3 bags of feed with room to spare and the back seats are pretty comfortable even for people over 6'. I'd buy another for sure!
Sharp looking, intuitive, responsive and comfortable to drive, center touch screen is super easy to navigate, very little road noise compared to other cars I tried (except Toyota), great stock sound system and I like all the information available in the display between the gauges
There's a lag when you step on the gas pedal which is annoying (though not just a VW thing), qc seals before rolling to dealerships - air whistle should be an easy fix before distribution, an option for no pre-installed satellite radio would be nice
