Great SUV, most of the time!

ReviewVery fun to drive. This vehicle is rock solid! Love the safety features and excellent ride. Don't waste money on the V8, the V6 runs fantastic. Interior gadgets make trips even more enjoyable. Some bad: VW should put on much better tires than the Pirelli Scorpion. Road noise is completely unacceptable when the vehicle approaches the 20K mark. Watch for transmission problems. The first time it was a electrical sensor that prevented the car from upshifting from 1st. It took the dealer a week to figure that one out. The next was a rubber bushing on the drive shaft failed causing the car to vibrate extensively upon acceleration.
Best FeaturesOverall performance and safety is fantastic. Great sound system. This SUV is fun to drive!
Worst FeaturesFind a better tire so customers get more than 20K miles. My dealer stated the rubber bushing for the drive shaft has happened to quite a few owners, so beware.
