TDI Diesels are underrated and a blast to drive
Discoloration of the drivers seat. The seat is suppose to be black, but appears to have two tones to it (black and gray).
No serious impediments.
This car takes off very well - its acceleration is a pleasant surprise.
The torque makes driving in stop and go traffic a little jerky, but smooth use of the accelerator solves this.
The shifting in this car is super smooth... it makes it feel like you're a good shifter (even if you're not).
The interior has a comfortable feel... and it certainly has a lot of head room.
The car handles turns quite well with its stock parts.
The relative high mass makes it good to drive on highways.
The key-less entry is a little annoying as the auto-lock feature when driving.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
