- Poor fuel economy, uncomfortable driver's seat, weak engine, noisy
Don't believe all the glowing reviews you read on this car with the 2.5 liter, five cylinder engine. 1) The best fuel economy I achieved in 90% highway driving was 23 mpg. in 50/50 mixed and conservative driving I have never reached 21 mpg, in 3900 miles of driving. 2) The engine is very weak and unwilling to rev, unless you put the auto transmission in sport mode, in which case it becomes very noisy and fuel economy goes further down. 3) Similarly, the auto transmission does not downshift quick enough on turns, heavy traffick and mountains forcing you to realy step on the gas pedal to force a lower gear, which again negatively affects the noise level and fuel economy. 3)The driver's seat is a back killer. The integral lumbar support is too low (almost at tailbone level) and no matter how you adjust it (not very easy to turn that dial) you can't find a comfortable position. 4) The car came out of the dealership with the steering wheel not centered. The VW sign on the wheel is tilted to one side. The dealer has yet to find solutions for either problem.
