It's funny this thread came up because I can not only address this but the concern that some people on this board have re: future Q5 production in Mexico. Three days ago, I bought a 2014 Jetta TDI Sportwagen with Sunroof, Nav and best of all--a 6-speed manual. This was a very difficult car to find and so far it appears to be well worth the effort. These cars are built in VW's Pueblo Mexico facility. Unlike the Jetta Sedans, the Sportwagen retains the more sophisticated multi-link rear suspension, it handles very well and as you would expect gets very good fuel economy (EPA rated at 30/42 but know to do well above those numbers). It also retains the vents for the back seats and has plenty of leg and headroom. For those not familiar with this car, the sunroof is 12.7 sf and works identically to the sunroof in the Q5. In the 3 days I've had it (nearly 900 miles) I have found no rattles, no strange gaps in the panels and everything works perfectly. The car drives like a good German car ought to drive and so far I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of the vehicle.
