I think that this is the best car that I've owned, including other VWs, Mazdas, and Acuras. I don't know how you could do any better at any price. The styling, both interior and exterior is fabulous, and the fit and finish is beyond compare. LOVE the sunroof. The car feels very solid like it would last forever.
Gas mileage (of course), sound system, bluetooth (love the hands free phone), panoramic sunroof, handling, ride.
Seems to be a little bit of turbo lag compared to the 2.0T Passat Wagon that I traded in, that's why I gave "Performance" only a 9. The voice command button on the steering wheel is a little sensitive in that it kicks in when I dodn't mean for it to.
