Great gas mileage - 36 city and 48
highway. Comfy, yet not overdone with
luxury items. All of the features you
need in a wagon at a great price. New
engine gives 100 HP and does make it
move - for a diesel. Compared it to
others - Suburu, Volvo, Audi - and they
don't come close to value and price.
Diesel - MILEAGE, TORQUE,
RELIABILITY... Holds two dogs
(Goldens) plus all gear needed for a
boating weekend. Very quiet inside and
out and quite responsive.
More leg room for the rear seats - move
them back a little. It would make
lowering the seat backs easier too.
Terrible AM reception. Dealer's
service tech told me that VW radios are
notoriously bad in this department -
even if you have the "Monsoon" option.
