Like everyone else, fuel economy is in everyones mind. Driving a BMW 525 70 miles per day to work was getting expensive. Much shopping/research went on and the VW TDI SportWagen was the Ace of Hearts that we were looking for so the BMW went bye-bye. I look forward to driving this car everyday and thank God I was lucky enough to find one on the lot on my first visit to the VW dealer.
Higher MPG than my old car & price of Diesel is a no brainer. Sporty looking and my daughter loves the 52" sunroof. Definitely roomy for the kids & their stuff. Not noisy/smelly like the old diesel cars. Normal size spare tire. Navigation w/DVD player. Great response when taking off (Turbo)
The built in Harddrive needs more user friendly features. Full power seats, not just reclining only. Radio ctrl on steering wheel.
