Have owned the car for about a month now and it is GREAT! Not a single problem with it whatsoever. Has PLENTY of pickup on the highway. The brakes are perfect! I love the Euro-styling. Great radio system. Love the 10 speakers and the satellite radio and the ipod aux and the 6 disk in-dash changer. The 6 Speed Automatic is perfect especially in sport or tiptronic mode. The car comes standard with a whole lot which is nice.
Sport Mode, heated front seats, in-dash 6 cd changer, in-dash Sirius satellite radio, All the VW Safety, SUNROOF!, GERMAN!
Could stand to get better MPG but I chose fun ( Rabbit) over boring and over hyped with slighter better MPG (Prius)
