ReviewAdmittedly have only driven the car 6K miles, but must say, am more than pleased. Well thought out with ever so many clever features that make car seem like it knows you. Sweetest engine I've driven - excellent power due to great low end torgue via turbo charger. Rides like on rails, yet seems like larger luxury ride. One needs to keep an eye on options (can escalate pricing rapidly) and bargain aggressively - with that in mind, pricing is quite attractive and competitive.
Best FeaturesHoney of an engine. Great vinyl seats that look exactly like leather (I simply KNEW that was possible, but cuts into up-charging for real leather). Cavernous interior. Lots of storage space. Serious driver layout of seating and dash. GREAT handling with high end ride. Styling sophisticated.
Worst FeaturesNice audio system (10 speaker/6 CD), but could use more bass, cleaner anyway. Maybe a little more throat to the engine, but that's more me than what the public probably wants. VW recommends 10K oil changes - think that's pushing the limit. Owner's manual should provide more info for do it yourselfer
