How can you go wrong with the prices of fuel? I get more than 1,000 km (600 miles) per tank and diesel costs 10% less than gas. I sold my '92 Explorer for an '03 VW and I am making money in the process. This was before prices got crazy, my saving are more now. The car is quality throughout, leather heated seats (great for Canada), heated mirrors, huge huge trunk space for clubs and such. The back seats fold down for even more trunk space. She rides like a dream and seems to be made of a heavier gauge steel than most cars.

Best Features

The heated seats, once you have 'em you will be spoiled and never go back.

Worst Features

The radio station selection on the steering wheel. It goes to all channels, would only like it to go to the programmed favorite channels. Ice build up in the wheel wells, has to be chipped out or you get a rough ride. This only happens under certain circumstances.
