We got this TDI last month it is a great car. It is put together well, the engine pulls hard. We haven't broken the engine in all the way yet and we've been getting 35-41 mpg mixed. Everything on the dash is laid out nicely, easy to reach.

Steering wheel mounted controls would be nice. And our check engine light came on at 675 miles. Dealer told us it was a "diagnostic computer" and it will be fine.
