This is my second VW, the first being
a 2002 Passat. Like the Passat, the
build quality on this car is
impeccable. Unlike the Passat, this
car zips around corners parks in small
places. I have the leather interior,
which is of better quality than my
brother's 3 series bmw. The six speed
transmission is quick, and precise -
not as much as a Miata- but very good
nonetheless. The trunk space is
surprisingly effective. In short,
this car is perfect for the city
dweller that hauls his or her self and
a friend along with a keen desire to
enjoy the ride along the way.
well bolstered leather seats. grippy
leather steering wheel. smooth power
delivery. same look (though an inch
smaller) rims as the R32.
radio could stand to provide a better
base response without resorting to the
equalizer. an independant rear
suspension would be welcomed.
