I love this car. I have put 85,000 miles on it in about two years. I change the oil, rotate the tires and it keeps on running. I've had ZERO problems out of this baby. I routinely get 50 mpg! With gas prices at $3.00/gallon, why wouldn't you want this car. It's fun to drive, peppy and has great fuel economy.
The TDI engine. 50 mpg is the only way to go. I don't think I will ever go back to a gasoline engine. It would even be hard to go to the Passat TDI. It ONLY gets about 38 mpg.
