Purchased As New
This is my first VW. The Wolfsburg has the sport suspension so it sits a little lower and is a little bumpier but handles quite a bit better than the other models. I wasn't even considering the Wolfsburg and tried it after test driving the TDI, SE and a SEL. The TDI was a close second and is what I was hoping to purchase. It all went to heck when I made the stupid decision to drive the Wolfsburg as I was signing the papers on a SE (becuase VW wouldn't go below 3.9 APR on the TDI......all other models was 0%). Since this car would only be driven about 5000 miles/year, I decided the fun factor out weighed the cost of gas. For anyone that doesn't consider this an exciting car to drive, I'm coming off of a Toyota Corolla, Scion TC, and my other car is a Toyota 4 Runner. The cars I mention can put you to sleep they're so boring to drive. I did love them all but the VW is a totally different animal. I would imagine it would be the difference between a Corvette and a Ferrari for the well-to-do.
The car is heavy. You can't pull the wiper blades off the window without doing this funky secret code thing. You have to apply the brake to start it. The windows fog up (but you can reseearch how to eliminate that problem).
Pro's: The stereo is awesome with touch screen and SD card slot. Bluetooth works fantastic. Handling and acceleration is amazing for the price. Heated seats, side view mirrors and washer nozzles work perfect. You could put three full grown dead men with a big bag of lime and a shovel in the trunk. The 17" rims are of excellent quality. The trim hands down blows away any Japanese vehicle. Turbo is great thus far. DSG transmission shifts at 7 milliseconds. NO TORQUE STEER ! ! ! ! (eat that Mazda owners)
I love this car. I know how bad it's going to be when something goes wrong with the turbo or tranny. For now, I don't care. It is so much better than my other secondary cars that it's not even funny. It's as nice as my co-workers Audi A4 and my other co-workers BMX 32 something or another. I finally own a car that I fell is of excellent quality. It's a total blast.
