This is, without question, the best car I've ever owned. I love it. And I appresciate the strong 3.2L engine as oppose to the new 2.0L Quattro
Pros: It surprisingly economical considering it's 3.2 engine. The torque is awesome. The ride is flawless, corners like a dream. And the acceleration is very satisfying, to say the least.
I have the leather seats. I would personally go for the suede option. They are a but slippy when getting out of the vehicle. The trunk is HUGE. no problem of storage at all.
My husband is 6'2 and there's more than enough leg room for him to drive. And a surprising amount of headroom too.
It's definitely a head turner. I've had people offer to buy it from me as I've parked it. (sometimes that can get bizarre...).
Amazing for long journeys and thrilling for short ones!
The AWD kicks ass!! I live on a mountain and it has no difficulty in any weather. (I do invest in great winter tyres though...)
Cons: Opening the car in the rain. It's not the best design for water escape. Rain spills onto the seat as you open the door. Not ideal.
Automatic windows don't seal well in extreme cold conditions. (I live in Quebec, so I'm talking about -20's etc).
The back seat is pretty pointless, but who cares.
The 2008 model is pre-Bluetooth and iPhone adaptions.
If you're thinking about buying one, and it's in good knick, and not seen too many Canadian winters, stop thinking about it and just buy it! You won't regret it.
