I am still breaking in the car with only 120 miles driven. I am impressed by the engine and DSG transmission. Very smooth shifts while accelerating, and seems to find the correct gear for each situation. However,at very low speeds there is too much engine braking due to no fluid coupling so some small amount of lurching is sensed. The interior is very attractive and seems well made. The only complaint thus far is the front seats which are too hard. I hear this is a German car trait, but this doesn't impress my behind.
TDI engine, DSG transmission, fit and finish
Maybe have a "plush" seat option for those of us who are used to US, Japanese, and Korean car seats. (or put a aspirin in the glove box).
