"If there is such a thing as a "perfect" it's this!"4.5 starson by motoxer913
Pros: As much storage as small SUV, 35-45MPG, FUN to drive, great power, huge roof rack, love the panoramic sunroof, great looking. Attractive interior with nice touchscreen audio and great seats.
6-speed manual is awesome! DSG is pretty good too
Cons: minimalist bluetooth, few sound system options, DSG takes some getting use to with strange pauses in acceleration at time, easy to stall with 6-speed manual (you get use to it over time),
Summary: This Cnet review is rediculous to take one of the most perfect cars in existance and only give it 3 stars simply because it lacks some techie options that other cars have. I understand this is a tech website, but there is a lot more to a great car than the # of options on the sound system!
I've literally owned 2 of these. A 2010 with the 6-speed, and a 2011 with the DSG. I've LOVED both!! I'm a person that buys and sells cars/trucks quite often, so I have a lot of experience with other cars, trucks, and SUVs. Before the SportWagen my 2004 4Runner V8 was my favorite of all time, but the Sportwagen has won my heart for #1 all time vehicle. It is simply amazing! It has most of the versatility of an SUV with incredible power, gas mileage, and on top of that it's incredibly fun to drive. The ONLY faults with this car is lack of techie options which cnet pointed out.
I totally recommend saving $1300 and buying the 6-speed manual, it's better than the DSG, but my wife won't drive a manual so we traded for one with DSG which is good, but manual is better!
Best car EVER sold in the USA, do yourself a favor and give it a test drive if you're in the market for buying.
Thanks for your submission!
