You may have selected the wrong vehicle. The VW is truly European in feel and layout. It is designed for more modern and better maintained European highways. Plus, it has a sports cars roots: If your previous autos don't include 2 seat or 2+2 vehicles such as: Nissan 350, Mazda RX8, Chrysler Conquest, VW GTI etc, you may not prefer a sport ride. On the plus side, you get great handling and stability. Get the firmware update to help correct the transmission issue.Report it
If you want a "cushy" ride with European engineering, maybe spring for the sister- Audi Q5. It will cost you though. As stated above, there is a fix for the transmission. Two days after driving off the lot, I called the dealer and mentioned the tech bulletin referenced elsewhere on these posts, and they got it in, fixed it up, and were happy to do so. They weren't aware of that specific tech bulletin and were glad I brought it to their attention.Report it
