Great build and quality with exceptional gas mileage, within first 3,000 miles have 650 miles trip with best result of 30 mpg. Power is exceptional for a 4 cylinder and turbo, interior is very quiet and ride quality little too soft in my own opinion, highway speed the steering response turns to ultra sensitive - "great feel". Quality made with incredible savings on gasoline usage but calls for premium fuel. Have consistently gotten 400 miles from full tank of gas with 50/50 town/highway driving. Wagon is versatile with great looks; adequate amount of room for hauling with family of 4. Turbo lag noticeable but once whines up, power rival a V6 - makes it very fun to drive, cruises GREAT!!
Turbo kicks in and see cars in rear- view getting farther behind, a 4- banger with V6 guts. Smooth quiet ride and strong top end - cruises flawlessly at 90 mpg as if it is 50 mpg - strongly recommend abiding with local speed limits as you will easily drive faster than posted as ride is silky smooth!
VW correct the speedometer PLEASE!, while cruising @ 70 MPG on car speedo, the GPS read 67 mpg. Checked using another GPS and got the same result. Strange finding that speedo may be reading faster than actual speed. Own finding is that on avg, car speedometer read 2.3 mph fast than actual.
