This is a very fun car to drive. The interior is well laid out and posh. With the 5-speed it's zippy and nimble. There is plenty of room for friends or a trip to local home improvement store. VW needs to improve the electronics in this car. Numerous sensor failures, all of the bulbs in the car have been replaced at least once and the Monsoon head unit shorted out. When the car is in the shop, it's not much fun.
Leaving the SUVs behind when they're trying to bully their way in front of me. Just because it's small, doesn't mean it's slow.
Improve the service. I'm tired of hearing 'I don't know' as an explanation for everything that has failed: brakes @ 14000 miles, oxygen sensor, turbo sensor, Monsoon head unit, battery @ 25 months, etc. I really like this car but it's going to be hard for me to convince my partner to buy another.
