It really drives and handles well.
Getting 45 mpg is awesome and going
600+ miles between fill ups is nice.
The wagon surprisingly hold a lot of
stuff, with the front seats of the car
being roomy. 10,000 miles between
maintenace is a plus.
Fuel milage, handling and front seat
comfort. I also have had nothing go
wrong after 14 months and 20k miles.

VW customer survice is poor. Get
heated seat b/c it takes a while for
engine to warm up. Automatic locking
doors system sucks with wagon. Needs a
longer sun visor (just drove from
Arizona to California with Sun in my
eyes the whole time). Rear seats are
cramped, but it a small wagon.
