2013 and earlier Volkswagen Passat Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • I don't think the SE w/ Sunroof comes with a manual transmission.
  • The TDI SE Manual doesn't come with sunroof. All of the automatic TDI's come with Sunroof I don't know about the gas version because I wasn't interested.

    I have a 2012 SE Manual (2.5 gas) and I wanted a sunroof, and VW does not offer a sunroof with manual (why not?). I took the car to an aftermarket installer in my area and for about $1000 had a sunroof installed. They did a great job, put in entirely new headliner to the job looks factory done.

    If you like the manual, don't let the sunroof issue stand in the way.

    Car now has 18,000 miles, zero trips back to the dealer (other than oil changes). Quiet, great handling, rattle free, roomy, comfortable seats and a great HD FM radio.

    Hi, looking for passat SEL ( something similar to Honda Accord EX-L) and like to know if some one bought it recently and how much paid or should I pay (break up please if you can)

  • I just wanted to post my deal for others. I think I did very well, and was able to take advantage of the fact that one dealer has two locations nearby -- but they don't cooperate, separate businesses entirely.

    MSRP: 29340
    Sale Price: 25623
    Trade in: 11500

    Sale Price
    Trade Difference: 14123
    Dealer Charges: 199 ( I know,I know, but I talked them up $1000 on the trade-in)

    Final Price: 14322
    Sales Tax: 852
    Tinting: 199

    I had applied and was approved for 1.74% at PenFed, but gave the dealer a chance to meet or beat. I ended up with 1.44% for 60 months through VW.

    I think I got good deal. I was able to get the high end for my trade-in and a nice starting discount.
  • Hello,
    I wanted to know if I am getting a good deal. I have been offered a 2013 VW Passat Se/Sunroof for $21,580. I believe the MRSP is $26,640. The only problem is That my trade-in I'm getting a low value. I did go to Carmax and get a higher appraised value , Which the dealership said was good and they would cut me a check (Paid to CarMax) for the difference for what I owe. That difference which is $5000 would be added to the cost of the car. Any opinions, suggestions?

    I'm back in the market looking at a base passat TDI SE 6MT. I was wondering what the going price was to start negotiating. I saw $2500 dealer cash through the end of the month. Invoice is about 25,000. Thanks

    Hi, I just started negotiations on a 2013 2.5L SEL. We started at $0 down + taxes, title fees, and $425 x 36 months. After the first round, we are at:

    Out the door = $31,225
    Money Factor = 0.00065
    Residual 51%
    12K Miles per year.
    $378 per month.

    Are the residuals and money factor correct for a 2013 Passat SEL? I'm hoping to be at $320 x 36. If I am able to bring it down to that, is it a good deal? Thanks.

    I'm currently leasing a 2012 VW CC and my lease is up in mid-August. I'm looking at a 2013 Passat SE. MSRP of $26,110. I know how to calculate the lease numbers, but was wondering three things (1) what is the residual and money factor for July; and (2) with the dealer cash ($2,500) how much should I be able to negotiate the purchase price, and (3) will there be better deals in August?

    Thanks for all the help over the years!

    I know this is unrelated, but back in you mentioned printing off a copy of the TSB for your 07 camry. I recently purchased the 07 used and it has all the symptoms the TSB was to fix but I cannot find a copy of the TSB. Do you still have a copy?

    When you add the selling price and dealer fee you're essentially paying 25,307 for the vehicle. I see truecar for Miami has price for the vehicle currently at $24776. I would think an initial offer of $23,300 when added to the $699 dealer fee would put you at $24K, $777 under the truecar price this evening. This is assuming you have excellent credit and you are not trading a vehicle. Please note that the truecar price in different markets is over $1100 different in some cases.
  • Hi Matt, I am in STL and trying to negotiate on 2013 Passat TDI SE (sunroof but no nav) Any suggestions? Were did you get the best deal? Recommend a specific sales person? Any dealers to avoid? Thank you!!
  • I was trying to negotiate on buying a 2013 Passat SE but once I figured out how low the car payments will be, I changed my mind to leasing for 3 years. The same dealership trying to sell then offered me the lease deal below and considering July 31, 13 was the last day for lease specials I want to check if I walked away from a good deal?

    MSRP: $26,110
    Capital Cost: $21314
    Money Factor: 0.00048
    Residual Value: $13316

    Lease Offer (3 Yrs/36k miles): $296/month (all inclusive)

    Found a dealer with a 2012 Passat SEL that they haven't sold yet, now since it's nearly two model years old I was wondering what to offer. From what I've seen online the car depreciates $10k to $12k over that time. Car is brand new with less that 250 miles and had an MSRP of $29,400. What would be a fair offer?

    I am looking to maybe purchase this 2013 vw passat, SEL 7726 miles on it. Owned by one person. Carfax shows title issued 2/6/13 then back to dealer on 4/5/13 and it has been for sale there ever since. Price is 23,457.

    Over 7000 miles in two months?! What should I offer?
  • acaderacader Posts: 2
    2013 SE can be down by another $10-$15 per month. You can still negotiate on the 2013. Seems like Aug is better for Passat. I'm negotiating a 2013 SEL Premium (gas) for about $320 p.m OTD, 12Kmiles, 0 down.

    I don't know what the money factor is for Aug.
