    That's good to hear. I had a blast driving it around the desert for a long weekend. Scratches the itch for something sporty while technically being a full size sedan and being functional space wise.

    Even though it's two doors, the Challenger is pretty roomy inside. I rented one and almost went straight to the dealership afterwards. FUN to drive.

    Yeah, that's my problem though...I have to drive both kids to school, so four doors works way better.

    I know VW is typically a love or hate thing for people, but I can honestly say for over two years I've adored my GLI. It's got enough size to get three people to SeeMore HQ, has tons of pep with the Turbo engine, and despite being a turbo, gets probably 35mpg on the highway.

    This is my fourth car, and the first one I didn't want to be rid of after two years. So pleased with it. Unless they release something more awesome in the next couple years, I could see myself hanging onto this one for a while.

    I have a 2011 VW CC and haven't had any issues other than a tranny issue fixed because of recall. Wifes 2012 VW Beetle has been fairly solid as well.

    Can you see above and give your thoughts on Audi recently? Are the electrical issues behind them for now?

    I would love a Toureg but it's way out of my price range.

    Thank you for the honest info. I know you hate to put it out there but if most meet you, they know you are as honest as it comes with this stuff and are only relaying your personal experience as someone that specializes in this stuff and has the tenure behind them.
