I Was Going How Fast Officer? — all around great car for the price. The paddle shifters are fun. Get up and go could be better but once the turbo kicks in its becomes more fun. I was going to go for the leather but for some odd reason decided the plaid to be more fun -- i made the right call imho.

Incredible Car. Love It — i like the handling but it could use a little more horsepower. havent had any problems just scheduled maintenance. its a fun car. the car will save you money in the long run because of the diesel which will run longer and get you 40-50 mpg.

Get Over The Looks And You Will Have A Great Car — Great car.Had a 2005 A3 2.0T before this and this is better for my needs as have now gone from spending NZ $ 160-180 every other weekend to NZ $ 80-90.Sure its not as fun as the A3 ( I knew that would be the case ).But once on the open road you wouldnt know that its a TDI under the bonnet.Mid range overtaking seems better that A3.

Have Two And Will Keep Buying For The Comfort, Ride, Safety And Autobahn Style Driving Dynamics ! — Can't go wrong with a car that can out run a Toyota Prius Hybrid and do better in GAS mileage, right ??? I consistently scrape in 46.2 miles per gallon ! At 80 miles an hour - Its as smooth as they get !

Fun. Powerful. Handles. Space. Comfort

could use more power. Trunk wont close after first slam in the winter. The diesel wasn't sold in new york till now. I want the diesel.

I Have To Give It A Title. Sigh — Only regret was not being able to get the diesel power train. The 2.5 still has plenty of torque, and the car handles amazingly. Tiptronic along with just enough traction control makes even the most amateur driver feel like a veteran rally driver. Overall great car for getting five people around comfortably.

Don't Dismiss The Diesel! — Amazing fuel economy & creature comfort abound!! Leather, heated seat, sun roof, satelite radio...have all the options of higher priced vehicles. Quiet, rides nice, does just about everything I want in a car. I get about 42 to 46 mpg on average of both city and highway. Despite higher price on diesel, it still comes out on top. Engines are also designed to go over 300,000 miles.
