    So far I really like this car. I came from a jetta tdi. I don't even drive the turbo porsche anymore. The few things that are not the greatest, the seat comfort although the wifes prius 5 seats feel better and I think it rides better. The nav is kind of a joke. And I guess the computer can't understand my southern talk. I don't even use voice commands anymore. I use bing to locate addresses the nav says doesnt exist. The gas milage has averaged 48 mpg. I am really hard on my business vehicles but I keep up with the maintenance. I hope this car holds together. I have added motomori xb35 hid light kit, fog lights, vent shades, and added an extra 12v power plug on the back of the armrest tower and led lights to inside and taillights etc.

    I'm an attorney in Florida with offices in Fort Walton Beach, Tallahassee and Orlando. I average 48 plus mpg. I said the gps is a joke because it wont even find some addresses.

    If I had to travel that much I'd look at a private pilot's license.

    Each to their own opinion however IMO, this does not make it a joke. All GPS units I own have their limitations and I own the best Tom Tom & Garmin offer.

    a "joke" was just a figure of speech. I have a garmin as well, I just think the factory gps could use some updating or whatever it takes to find common addresses.
