Review
This car is an exceptional value in the used luxury car market. The fit and finish are impeccable. Elegance and refinement abound. This car is much heavier than other luxury cars in its class. Part of the reason is the quality of built as well as sturdiness of its frame. This car has one of the stiffest (if not the stiffest) frame of all cars in its class - a real safety feature. You may as well buy one with all the options as it costs significantly more to add them on later if you want it. Still, the standard feature list is extensive and more than enough for most people. Look for low mileage with complete warranty records. This is more luxurious and unique than my 12 cyl 7-series BMW.
Favorite Features
Heated and cooled ventilated Poltrona Frau leather seats with massage on all four corners. Lots of wood, leather and comfort features. Lots of space. Great styling. Smooth, luxurious ride. Lots of pickup for a car this heavy. You'll get a lot of positive attention when you drive this car.
Suggested Improvements
VWoA made a major faux pas when they marketed this car in the US under the VW brand name. Many (not all) VW dealerships just do not have what it takes to service a car of this type well. The ownership experience can be soured by less than optimal service. Oh yes, the steering is too effortless.
