I wouldn't recommend this car
Car is about 6 months old and I've had MANY problems. Gone to VW dealer and they couldn't help me. Went to VW customer service and they've told me that they can't help me either. Problems:
1) Presets for radio just randomly get set to the XM Preview channel.
2) Airbag light came on within first few weeks (dealer was able to fix this).
3) Emission light came on... dealer has no idea what the problem is and won't have tool to diagnose this problem until next month.
4) Car won't start at times. Dealer can't figure out why this is the case.
Up until I had all these problems with the car I had really liked the vehicle a lot. The car handles well and is great on gas.
This is the 7th car I've leased in the past 10 years and this is the first car I've had any issues with.
The fact that the dealer isn't helpful in resolving my problems and the fact that VW customer service isn't doing anything either, is a bit disappointing to say the least.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
