Although I've only had this car a week I am amazed.
I drove several vehicles but fell in love after I drove the Sportswagen TDI.
It is extremely quick (the HP numbers seem meaningless with this Turbo Diesel).
It is way fun-to-drive and the ride is smooth as "butta".
I'm used to truck based and Crossover SUV's (07 Murano last and 3 Tahoes before that).
My job changed and I no longer need a full-sized vehicle.
The Sportwagen will be perfect if......it holds up well.
VW has had a questionable reliability history, but for now I'm very happy.
Absolutely LOVE this car and the sound system is tip-top
very quick with no hint it's a diesel, way fun to drive, great sound system, great ride.....it feels solid as a rock....VW seems to know everything I absolutely have to have in a vehicle without one thing extra
no $ reason I can imagine a VW at this price couldn't have auto lights. . .have not had a car in years without auto lights.....
