"2005 GLS TDI model. Great mileage; great low end performance; outstanding handling and comfort at highway speeds. Climate control is only weird thing, in that is supports extremes very well but can take some time to figure how to fine tune. Freezing air or roasting warm/hot are easy to obtain from the vents. Points in between require some finesse."

"This car has had a series of recalls and way too many other service problems. The car has great performance but the service hassels and expense would prevent me from buying another Volkswagen. The car rides smooth and quiet and it's easy to go way above the speed limit and feel like you are just cruising slowly because the car performs well at high speeds. The safety features were a selling point. The interior fabric trim around the door came unglued. The covering on the interior driver door handle area peeled off. I've never had things like this happen on any Toyota or Honda I've owned."
