ReviewHave one ongoing problem, it's the road clearance under car, you will bottom out on road dips (not potholes) just thoses waves and dips that you cannot see. This has caused the dust panel behind front bumper to fall off. You will hit this panel entering and leaving driveways etc. There is just not enough clearance under car. I estimate the clearance under my Jetta to be approx. 2 to 3 inches at most. Is this legal? Local mecanic suggested that mybe Volkswagon might have stiffer front springs to lift car a little higher, will check soon. Good fuel economy but you lose a little of what you save from the pumps when you pay high, very high oil changes.
Best FeaturesFuel economy, getting 38 to 42 on average.
Worst FeaturesMove the center panel between driver and front passentger a couple of inches to the right, so driver has move leg room. Though for the passenger, but they can sleep when the driver can't - it's an even trade off.
