I have around 6500 miles on the car and would unquestionably buy it again if I was in that position. I drove several cars in the same price range and I was unimpressed with most, as soon as I sat in the VW I knew I'd like but driving it sold me instantly. If you are in the market make sure you drive this car before buying another! Feels solid, nimble and powerful compared to it's opposition.
Engine, firm ride.
More power is always good, but increased fuel mileage would be equally good!
