You're right...it is a flat out bargain. Lets see how my wheeling and dealing goes, hopefully I can get into one of these in the next month or soWhere can you get the 3.0 tfsi engine anywhere for that much cash? You can barely get a high mileage 2011 s4 for that money. Now add the electric motor and its torque adding fuel sparing benefits, the 8 speed transmission, and the very nice option list of the hybrid, with stuff I haven't even discovered yet, and its a no brainer.
The engine, the tech, the toys. What more could you want?
Due to the high voltages, here in the UK no VW technician is allowed to work on the vehicle who has not received the extended factory training - quite rightly so in my opinion. You need to find out.Since it wasn't imported into Canada, will servicing it by well trained technicians be an issue at all?
VW techs get access to all parts and info available south of the border. I actually have a call into VW Canada asking about what concessions they make in Canada in regards to warranty validity (ieL why would they not honour a US warranty when they don't sell the product here) and in terms of service centres.Since it wasn't imported into Canada, will servicing it by well trained technicians be an issue at all?
I couldn't agree more with this, with great emphasis on the uber safe part.nickm said:A luxury uber safe grocery-getter with a sub 5 sec 0-60, and fuel economy in the 20-ish MPG range seems like the worlds most perfect vehicle to me?
