We have recently purchased a TDI. After long consideration we went for it. Lookslike a lot of work was done at the dealer. Hopefully we missed the worst. At 110km they did timing and waterpump as we insisted due to previous warnings and info. A lot of fun (5 speed). I am not sure of the mileage quality yet that everyone boasts about. I guess it all depends on the type of driving. We tend to have a heavy foot.
Power roof, and windows powered by keylock in doors is pretty neat!!
Cupholders right above all the electronics is a really bad idea!! Wheel on the seat to recline it takes forever and is very basic and unadvanced idea. I hope they have improved it in newer models.
