The main reason for going with the VW over the Porsche was the interior and price. The Porsche while a beautiful vehicle, the interior is too sporty for me, the VW is more of a dinner SUV in my mind. But the price for the TDi is less and the towing capacity is amazing. I just completed towing my girlfriends Jetta about 500mi and it did not feel like I was towing anything, merging was easy in sport mode but not really needed. Overall, after about 3k miles driven I am still pleased with the vehicle and best of all no buyers remorse.A modestly priced luxury SUV, yes it is "just" a VW but if you want a Porsche or Mercedes go get one. If you want to save a few thousand and get an equally strong vehicle both in performance and quality the VW should be given a ride. It is nice for me because the VW dealer is also an Audi and Porsche dealer so when I dropped it off for its "quick-check service" maybe 30 minutes? I was given an S4 to continue running errands.. I now own three VWs (Touareg, Jetta, Passat) and a Mercedes, the Touareg has become my daily driver I enjoy it so much. The radio is the Lux package is weak. I like to drive with the windows down on nice days and when the windows go down music is practically unheard. But that could be fixed with the Executive package.. which would be the only thing I would change, the lux package is nice enough but for a bit over $50k I really think the speakers could keep up with my fading hearing. A very luxurious SUV, it is not an off-roading vehicle.. it is too pretty for that but in a few years maybe. Cons.. the windshield wipers need to move faster. I had to rain-x the windshield to keep up with the rain.
