Cool And Somewhat Good Looking — Very fun to drive in in sport mode. very eco with 57.5 MPG! that alot for a car that can go 156 MPH. very cool looking too just needs a body kit. I get this cat when I'm 15 1/2, but for now I drive on the back roads.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

The Yetta — good starting car, i really love it. the looks are great. interior is nicely done, as well as the exterior. the braking is really good, and it excellerates well. the shifting is smooth, and the manual mode is pretty sick. overall its a really nice car to start out with

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.

Pros

Gas mileage

Cons

No complaints, Runs like a clock and never stops !

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

Cons

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.
