    But, to get 4Motion which you want in northern and eastern states, the this lil thing carries a HUGE pricetag. Come on VW.

    I do like the 2011 VW Tiguan advertisement, but there is more to quality than thick sheet metal...just ask any retired AMC executive.
    A 2012 Honda CR-V is sure to be a much better value; It will not require expensive premium-fuel, nor will it be burdened with VW's well-documented reliability gremlins.

    I guess the author has not read the latest issue of Consumers Report. They pan the new Jetta quite a bit for their poor workmanship and cheap interiors as well as other points.

    I was close to buying a Jetta TDI a few years ago. When taking for a test drive I was trying to adjust the (power) seat and the sales rep said it had been pulled to replace one in another car. That sort of quality issue plus the smaller back seat caused me not to get it. However, it did drive very solidly. I went with a Hyundai Sonata which has been decent but does not have the feel of the VW or the Subarus that I have driven for many years....

    They need to put the 2.0TDI in it and this would be a world class vehicle. The later VW's are solidly reliable. I've had nothing but good luck with them.
