First of all, let me start by saying how much I love this car! People have complained about fuel economy, but you have to realize it is a 5 cylinder engine! It is right in line with other 5s. Just look at the Volvo 5cyl and you find the same gas mpg rating! If you're coming from an SUV you're likely to love the mpg, but if not, you'll be somewhat disappointed, but you get the extra cylinder and it makes a big difference! There is nothing really bad about this car other than you will want to drive it fast which may cause you grief! It does seem to get a lot of attention and impresses everyone who sits in it! It's a step up in class from Honda!
Heated seats, iPod dock, console, heated mirrors, drive quality, build, German engineering. It really is a car that feels like a luxury hatch! Especially when compared to other hatches in this price range!
Nothing major. The radio sometimes boosts the bass at the wrong time, when slowing for example. Just need to make this VW a self washing car and it would be perfect!
