I think the dieselgaters are the best deal out there in the used car market today. They get better highway mileage than any comparable car. Many former fans have turned on them or prefer ALHs. And the rest of the public who never really gave them a thought, has even less interest. The result is great prices.

It is a fantastic highway cruiser, reasonably fun in the twisties and 4 gear pulls on long highway uphills brings a smile to my face that no hybrid can match. And it is cavernous inside.

Do you have the DSG? 37 seems a bit low for mileage. I have been anywhere from 43-45, but it is largely interstate or lightly trafficed state 2 lane highway. On such roads with rolling hills and little traffic, I can easily exceed 50 mpg.
