ReviewNo problems in 36k+ miles. Drives like glued to a road. Great city acceleration or when lights turn green, and pretty good on interstates when downshifted.
Mileage depends on the number and frequency of stops: 32-40 in town, 45-52 on secondary roads and close to 50 on interstates. All with dynamic driving. Excellent radio and cell bluetooth integration. Large
cargo volume with non-crushing hinges.
Quiet engine except for occasional louder turbocharger heard on quiet surfaces.
Best FeaturesA feeling of subtle luxury. Everything works and the car drives with very little effort. Convenient cruise controls. 110V outlet. Good size.
Worst FeaturesRoad noise on rough surfaces even with Michelin MXV4; Mileage varies on same routes with similar traffic- probably artifact of extensive emission controls; Seat takes some time to adjust. Lack of automatic light turn-on and proximity sensors for parking (both present in EU Golfs).
