Bought a VW Alltrack - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I posted a while ago about purchasing a 4runner. My better half put a halt to being a two SUV family. Long story short, last weekend I bought a VW Alltrack. SE, DSG, pure white with Marrakesh brown interior. It was a program car, VW CPO with 10k miles
This is my first VW, and we are definitely in the honeymoon stage. So far, so good. The seats are not great, but not terrible. It is screwed together well enough, but the material quality does not match the E46 BMW it replaced. You can definitely tell the DSG is an automated manual. I can feel the clutch slip with every start from a dead stop.
What I really dig so far are the little details that remind me of my first SAAB (a 1995 900S). Stupid little things like the front reverse lights, the cornering lights, the rear wiper turns on when put in reverse while the wipers are on, the single follow-up wipes after using the windshield washer. I never realized how much I missed these features.
And! the little turbo engine that could (that impression is based on my OG 9-3).
I am liking it for now.
