Needs more love!
April 29, 2019
This car needs some more love! At least where I live, it is rare to see 2016+ versions of these in the San Diego area.
FYI, these are some of the cars I’ve been on in the past:
2000 Ford Taurus
2009 Scion tC
2007 Mitsubishi Galant
2007 Toyota Corolla
2016 Chevy Cruze
Here’s my breakdown:
Comfort: first car ever which I’ve have NOT felt pain in the tail bone!
Interior: you either love it or hate it. Personally I love how all the lines seem clean, neat, and tidy. No crazy Lamborghini-wannabe lines darting everywhere.
Performance: RELATIVELY speaking from some of the cars I’ve experienced, this car definitely packs a punch. You are not going to be setting Guinness records, but you’ll have enough punch from this little guy.
I really love the steering. I started driving a Scion tC, which at the time had a heavy steering feel. When I initially met my car, I definitely noticed how much more lighter it was.... without being too light? Like, there is a feel.... maybe tamed? But in a good way lol hard to describe, but it felt “correct” for the car.
I’ve driven a 2016 Nissan Frontier and that steering felt robotic...unnatural.
On the Passat, it was light and natural.
Value: Definitely biased on this one. I’m loving the car so far.
Exterior: Again, subject to interpretation. I love the clean, almost minimalist look it has.
Reliability: So far, we shall see. The only thing aside from routine maintenance that has gone bad so far was the master switch that controls all 4 windows.
