I bought my first VW on a whim in September. I was apprehensive of the infamous VW "quality" issues, but went ahead and got it anyways. So far, I have absolutely no regrets at all. The car is a lot of fun to drive, looks great and is comfortable. The interior quality is impeccable-on par or better than BMWs and Audis. I've driven it 7,000 trouble-free miles so far, and hope it stays that way. I am admittedly still holding my breath waiting for a problem to pop up- hopefully this VW will prove me wrong!
The interior. The design and quality of the interior are amazing. The leatherette is a nice feature too. Who needs real leather when you can have something just as good?
The automatic could shift a little better-it's a bit clunky and harsh at times.
