VW Diesel wagen. Heavy front end because of the diesel motor weight. I am very pleased with these Continentals at one year and 5,000 miles. They track very well and are quite cruising on the freeways as well as the back paved highways in Wisconsin. I have now moved the car to Poland where most roads are back roads and not nearly as nice as in Wisconsin. However, I remain impressed with this tire. Gas mileage is what I expected with the car, perhaps a bit higher.
