My wife and I have had this vehicle for about a month now, and we have been thoroughly satisfied. I have been a VW fanatic since birth, and this is my first car (I bought a Ford Truck about 4 years ago) purchase outside of VW in my life. I was immediately impressed with the handling of the car for such a large vehicle. Additionally, we have been impressed with the sheer volume of the vehicle as we moved up from a VW Jetta. I am also very impressed with the maintenance plan of 60000 miles. Overall this is perhaps one of the best purchases I've ever made. I would highly recommend it, its at least worth a look.
The coolest feature is without a doubt the Sirius Satelite Radio. I also enjoy the push button start, and the great amount of space in the rear.
I definitely have to say that the controls could be a little less complicated to use. But overall, this is a great vehicle.
