I HAVE ONLY OWNED THIS CAR FOR 7 MONTHS AND I ALREADY HAVE PUT 22,000 MI. ON IT. I LOVE THE GAS MILEAGE OF THE TDI AND SINCE DIESEL IS A BIT CHEAPER, I LOVE IT EVEN MORE.

Review

I was not expecting to buy the diesel when I arrived at the VW dealership. I wanted the 1.8 T. The fule economy of the diesel made me curious so I took it for a test drive. I was amazed! It had a lot more power than had expected, and did not seem any louder than the gas engine. I bought the diesel and have had absolutly no regrets. I would recomend this vehicle to any commuter.


Favorite Features

I love the layout and feel of the cocpit. The stereo has great sound. The fule economy is unbeleivable! It handles very well. It's roomy, but still nicely compact. It looks great.


Suggested Improvements

Lumbar support adjustment on non- leather seating. A "media in" jack on the stereo.
