Review

I love the low RPM torque the little diesel puts out. It requires only minimal changes in throttle settings to climb hills. My automatic transmission has been perfect. Timing belt changes are the norm for all current vehicles and this is an somewhat expensive procedure. Not the best build quality and lots of rattles and other noises have developed. Occassional "Check Engine" lights but VW's seem to have these and they usually go away on their own. This car should not be a daily driver for a non-mechanic. Too much trouble on the little things. Expensive to repair. Really bad CD changer in trunk. 600+ miles to the tank.

Best Features

The engine, with it's wonderful low RPM torque. Great mileage, even with an automatic transmission (38 town, 45 highway). Starts immediately. Good trunk space.

Worst Features

Better build quality in interior. Better audio components, especially the CD players and speakers. More accurate speedometer and fuel gauge. Better seat adjustment mechanics.
