This car was my dream car until at 103000 miles the engine simply died.
It was in the shop for three months,
EEC computer replaced, and another computer replaced and the flywheel was warped and replaced.
Even after that - and a $3000 plus repair bill - no one could fix the car!!
Any car that is not able to be repaired should never be sold!!
DO NOT BUY!

I've had the six-speed version of this twin turbo 300HP behemoth for about 6 months now and love it. Although the interior isn't as luxurious as my old Audi, it does the job just fine and when considering how much faster this thing is, I'll take performance over interior any day.
There truly is no other station wagon with this type of power and handling that comes in a six-speed anymore. Add in AWD and we're talking about a car that can go anywhere.
Last year's 2.4T model is now the 2.5T, with the same 208-horsepower engine as the AWD model. New option packages for the 2.5T include Convenience and Special Titanium trim packages -- both bundle a wide variety of desirable features, but the latter includes distinctive exterior cosmetic touches as well. Finally, bi-xenon headlights are now optional while the top-line Dolby audio system has been upgraded with more speakers and greater amplification.
