My wife and I picked up our new Black Golf TDI DSG in New Jersey and drove it 4750 miles to Alaska in 8 days. I think we can say we put it through it's paces. I will post my thoughts on the trip in a few days. I will say I really love the car, it drives great even on snow with standard tires; and comfortable even on a 800 mile day.

I paid MSRP for the car I wanted and didn't want to wait for a TDI to show up at the local dealer. The drive across the continent was a bonus for me, I always wanted to make that trip; it was a real adventure in the middle of winter.

Glad to see it drove so well! I'm looking at driving down to New Orleans from Cincinnati for the bowl game but still a little bit cautious of putting so many miles on it from the start. I was hoping to baby it some more with the break-in method chitty recommends on the site. But if noone else can drive....

well, at least it'll be great gas mileage! What was your final average MPG dhrubin? I know cold driving and blizzard driving probably don't make for the most fuel efficient conditions, but just curious.

Remember I was driving quite hard and fast most of the time. Tank by Tank my mileage varied between 36 and 39mpg.
