ReviewStart this car up and the exhaust note
on ignition will blow you away. Move
the tach up past 3800 RPMs and the
growl is beautiful. This car has
sickening amounts of torque and
traction and body lean and roll are
very well controlled. The ride is
stiff, but never uncomfortable and it
is wonderfully balanced. The shifter on
this vehicle is the best that
Volkswagen has ever placed in a
standard production vehicle and
compares very well with those from BMW
and Honda. In short: this car is too
Best FeaturesTorque, torque, and more torque. Excellent steering wheel, shift/clutch design and wonderful suspension balance.
Worst FeaturesWhat, no xenon headlights on a $30,000.00 car? The only other minor gripes would be lack of a 6-disc in dash CD and lessened cargo room due to the independent suspension/4Motion setup. Good trade-offs, in my opinion.
