The car is great, esp. since I am 6'4"
and fit rather well in it. Performance
a bit sluggish with 2.0l engine, great
controls, quality textiles for fabric
and dash panels. Terrible trouble
with "disappearing" engine oil, 3
dealers cannot find out where 3 quarts
are going between oil changes (must be
burnt), constant check engine lights,
window regulator troubles, tail light
bulb troubles, and it sounds like a
popcorn machine in the morning!
Very comfortable for tall people, great
controls, ergonomics, overall sturdy
build quality. Very good in the snow
for a FWD car.
Electronics are TERRIBLE and engine is
dated...highly suggest and extended
warranty FROM VW if you are considering
this vehicle. And it has no back seat
