Mein Auto: '09 Cayenne "S"
Well, I would probably be sold on an ML63 too! However, the more I look at the T-egg the more I think "bargain" -- for diesels that is. Now that may well change when the Q5 TDI and the Jeep GC diesel show up in a few months. I suspect their price point will hover right around $38K or so at the base end. I have seen several of the new style VW T-eggs around and they are nice looking machines IMHO. However, the new Hybrid VW T-egg that Emission just did a report on for AutoBlog made no sense at all to me. Virtually the same fuel mileage and a serious jump in price from the diesels. That coupled with the complex nature of the beast and the lack of familiarity with them at the dealership level would keep me away from them in any case. However, it was a nice review Mike!
