Jeese, guys, I'm on my second VDUB and I can't complain. My 2003 passat was just real nice. Loved the way it drove. It was getting a little long in the tooth, so we upgraded to a 2008 Toureg II. LOVE IT. Ya I know, it only gets 21MPG on the highway vs. the 32 I got with the Passat. But I could never take that Passat on mountain trails I've taken the Toureg on. So I'm satisfied with the increased cost for the utility gained. I do plan to implement some of the hypermilage tips though, like parking so as to pull out rather than back out, and other methods. I've already discovered that while climing steep grades I get better milage if I let it lug than if I down-shift to a lower gear.

Happy Driving everyone

The last complaint in this thread was over a year ago.

You're probably not really lugging anyway, just using low enough RPM for a little noise/vibration...

I really enjoy my VW, but I know they're not perfect. No big deal, you pay a little in the occasional glitch, and you get other qualities instead.
