Leased this Silver R, automatic, in
August, '03 as my '99 T5 lease was
coming due, after looking at Avant
Wagon, Toureg, and lots of others.
Had All-Season tires put on as a
condition of lease and the car is
fantastic. It sticks to the road in
all weather and at all speeds. Never
any wheel spin -- it just digs in and
goes like a bat out of hell. 15k so
far and no service issues.
Performance, 4 disk CD, steering wheel
radio controls, integrated cell phone,
Turning radius is a big
disappointment. Gas mileage is
marginally acceptable I get 20+ on
the highway but only 15+ in the city.
Cabin storage is also just marginal --
no room for my CB.
