Love to drive it when everything works. And that is not very often.

The car drive great when everything is working, the engine amazing torque, smooth running, the DSG transmission preforms flawlessly. Seats are very comfortable and well finished. It's too bad that the EPA just found out that VW cheated on the emission equipment. We will see what the recall brings.
