vehicle is good.
looked at x5, x3, q7, q5, cayenne, highlander, f150, explorer, mdx....
chose these because of the mix of very good quality, features, comfort at a relatively decent value (most vehicles we looked at were $50k+ with either less features, less quality, or both.
too bad not all the european options are available on the models here.
perhaps vw afraid its getting too close to q7 or cayenne.
power is more than adequate
brakes are superb
avg mpg 21 with 50/50 hwy/city (not going over 70)
turn ratio is phenomenal
being able to do u-turns in two lane roads
ability to set treble/bass directly (without going through menus)
provide mid's freq in stereo
