Besides a life, diesels are known for fuel economy, and my test fuel gauge only began to move from its spot after several of moderate city/freewaydriving. Estimated economy was 30 miles per gallon in the and 42 on highways with the car’s manual transmission Figures a six-speed DSG automatic are nearly In any case, Volkswagen may be underrating the economy numbers.

With the manual, a downshift sixth to fourth or, preferably, gear is needed for quick m.p.h. vehicle passing on Fifth is OK if you just want a pass, but sixth is strictly a gear that puts the at a very low r.p.m. level. in third gear in town for moves—fifth and sixth at 30 m.p.h. the engine to lug.

Safety items included the front air bags, front and side-curtain head protection air electronic stability control, differential lock and a tire monitoring system. Many don’t steer, handle or properly because they improperly inflated tires.
