They are a lot of fun. Problem areas have been fixed, so it should be a reliable car. Low interest finance rates are available right now. Even in its 6th model year, it is still a fresh car. Lots of features, great fit and finish, great safety, and it's a lot of fun to drive. There is some turbo lag with the 1.8T, but you get used to it, and in fact it becomes fun to take advantage of.
Let us know how your test drive went.
