I've had many VW's and this one is
terrific, like the others. The
turbodiesel is quick to start and
doesn't smoke a bit when driving or in
traffic. The car feels like it has
more than 90 hp, as the torque is so
strong. No need to downshift on hills
or to pass. Low RPM's on the highway
make for quiet cruising. Lots of
headroom (no sunroof) and storage
space. Mine has the updated console
with 3 cupholders (slide the rear one
back and it holds a large water bottle
in the gap provided by the slider.)
Great feel through the steering wheel
and suspension. Rides like a much
larger car. No complaints.
Long cruising range - 500+ miles and
you still have over 1/4 tank! Lots of
headroom, which is a rarity in cars
these days. Stereo (non-monsoon)
sounds great - good bass punch - and
has tape and cd as standard.
Nothing major - how about an armrest
as an accessory for the GL model.
