I was surprised by the features and how solid the car is. We have gotten over 50 mpg on the highway but mostly see 44 overall avg. The TDI powerplant runs well in the WI winters and offers power that few gas engines can offer. I purchased used for under 10 grand with heated leather seats, sunroof, 6 disk, 5 speed, alloys, etc. Why waste money on a hybrid - TDI is a "green" alternative.
MPG's, power, comfort, drives great!
Cheap electronics (switches), costly repairs - even the repair shop had to change the headlight bulbs. Cup holders are bad, although fixed in newer models.
