  • Can anyone advise me as to whether or not these offers sound reasonable? I was hoping to pay closer to $400 a month (no money down except DMV fees), but don't know if that's realistic on either of these models. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

  • bought 2013 Passat premium listed for 34000. paid 29386. Armstrong vw in gladstone oregon
  • Checking with all VW dealers around Cincy- got the above to $24,816 including the delivery fee.

    Thoughts? Sticker is $27,600.

  • I traded in my 2011 Jetta with about 6 months left on the lease @$346/month at David Maus VW in Orlando, FL . Payoff was $16017 and car value was $14500. Got the 2014 Passat 1.8 TSI SEL MSRP around $31k down to $27,999, $700 out of pocket because I had to change plates from a different state and $397.60 per month for 36 months 12K miles per year. I saw that they got my payoff amount to around $15k about a thousand off. I think they used Holiday lease cash or something. I'm extremely happy. This feels like an A6 (I owned an 04 A6), but with less power and no AWD. This thing plays DVDs and even has memory key fobs. Super smooth ride and the Turbo bursts feel and sound great. Also smells really good! :) You guys think I done good?
  • I got mine for 397.60 per month and I was underwater on my lease. Now, at the end of the year is the time to get them because of the insane discounts. I got mine $3k under MSRP and they overvalued my trade in just to get me under $400 because I wouldnt budge. Good luck, if not I will get you in contact with my Sales rep at VW in Orlando. You should be able to get a slightly better deal than me.
  • Just purchased yesterday. TDI SE manual black with beige interior with alarm/mats. MSRP $27,675.

    Purchase price $24,500 (including destination) + NJ tax + title. I paid $0 down, entire amount financed at 1.69% for 63 months - they matched and beat the 1.99% my credit union was offering.

    Purchased from Valley Motors just north of Baltimore. Experience was excellent. Negotiated over phone/email - very straight forward Took train down to Baltimore from NYC, dealer picked me up from the station and I was out in 45 minutes. Could have been shorter if I had declined the detailed walkthrough of the car.

    I was stoked because this was the only manual TDI SE in black/beige in 400 miles of NYC. Not only did I get the exact car I wanted but it was also the best price for any TDI SE.

    Hercules are you saying you got it on the road for 24,500? I'm not having any luck negotiating with VW dealers. We wanted a Mazda 6 Diesel but they aren't available until April. So we decided to get a Passat TDI SE w sunroof. But the best price I have found out the door with VW .9% financing so far is 27,415 making it 29,349 out the door.

    We're seriously considering buying the Mazda 6 gasser and forgetting VW altogether. The dealers should be trying to make some good deals this time of year but they just don't seem hungry. The car buying services seem to be a joke as well. Tried carsdirect, smartchoice, edmunds, kbb, and they are all not garnering much better results for VW quotes. The Mazda quotes are much better as a percentage below MRSP vs VW.

    And FWIW edmunds doesn't even offer their service in our area for VW - it's not even listed. What's that about?

  • Dealers have to choose to participate in the Price Promise program. Also, the program is fairly new.

    Not sure how you are defining on the road. The sale price for the car $24,500. NJ sales tax + title + registration were extra - I did not quote those because they will vary significantly by state. So the final total cost - including taxes and DMV fees - was 26,400. That is the full amount that was financed and I did not pay anything out of pocket.

    I hear what you on the negotiation part. It really depends on where you live. For example, dealers in the NYC area do not care one whit about negotiating. Somehow dealers in the Maryland / Delaware area seem to have much better prices on offer. A couple of years back I also got my G37x from a MD dealer at a price substantially below what I was being quoted in the NYC area. I really do not mind making a quick train/bus ride down if it saves me thousands.

  • @7point3psd said: We wanted a Mazda 6 Diesel but they aren't available until April. .

    I also wanted to at least evaluate the Mazda 6 diesel.

    However, I am not getting good vibes from the 6 the way their diesel launch schedule has progressed. It was supposed to come out earlier this year. Then later this year. Now sometime next year. They are clearly facing some technical issues trying to nail down the mileage as well as non-treated exhaust. I was not ready to wait indefinitely or be the guinea pig for whatever Mazda finally cooks up.

    Having driven diesel VWs in europe before, I was pretty comfortable getting one. Plus the car is freaking huge, especially the back seat. There is just an incredible amount of legroom back there.

    If I were you then I would probably expand the search area and keep looking for a VW. I am doubtful that you will be able to get a 6 diesel substantially off list price when it is launched.

    Good luck with your search. Don't lose heart. I almost bought the same exact 2013 Passat three months back but the deal didn't go through (it was actually at an even lower price). I was still waiting to see what they would change for 2014. Apparently nothing other than the pointless Carnet thing. So I paid more for pretty much the same care one model year newer but I think I still got it at a decent price.

    Thanks for the encouragement and info Hercules. My wife fell in love with the 2014 M6 Grand Touring gasser, and frankly so did I. We paid $30K for it so we threw logic out the window if comparing it to the TDI - but the VW guys were such [non-permissible content removed] hats to us and the Mazda people treated us with kingly respect and NEVER any pressure whatsoever. So we plunked 15K down and financed the other 15K at .9% interest. We love the car and we really loved the way the dealership treated us. We'll keep this one for a couple or 3 years and see how the diesel model pans out and go from there. Thanks.

  • @7point3psd said: My wife fell in love with the 2014 M6 Grand Touring gasser, and frankly so did I.

    If you were going the good old gas route then that would be the car to get in this segment. Congratulations! I am also envious that your wife actually like a stick shift. I would have given anything to buy a stick G37 but as it was going to be our only car back then, I had to settle for a slushbox.

    I have shifted to doing all car related negotiations entirely over email and phone. I will go test drive at a dealership that I know I will not buy from (I get a sense of their pricing from TrueCar and Edmunds) and then negotiate with others over email and the tricky parts over phone. This substantially keeps the clown behavior you describe above in check.

    It's not a stick it's the automatic. We prefer automatics. I liked manual when I was younger lol.

    Can anyone please help me figure out of this is a good deal for a lease on a Passat:

    2014 Passat SE 1.8T w/moonroof

    $240 a month (includes tax) No fees at signing, but they would take my paid off 2003 (purchased new in 2003) Jetta GLS 1.8T with 138,000 miles on it. First month payment covered and 2 maintenance visits included. 36 month lease.

    Also thought about purchasing but I'm a bit skeptical because I've had a lot of maintenance issues with my '03 Jetta over the years. The other car I'm looking at is a 2014 Honda Accord Sport. I really did like the way the 2014 Passat drove.

    Thanks in advance for your input/advice

    Does anyone know, What are the new incentives after february 3rd?

  • redlinezredlinez Posts: 12

    I do know they have $2000 for sure. Minutemanvw in Boston is advertising crazy discounts for $4000-5000 off. Not sure what strings are attached there. I don't live anywhere near there though.

  • ndmike88ndmike88 Posts: 154

    Going to look at the TDI's. 0.9% for 60 plus a $1,000 gas card. I have a 2009 Jetta TDI (41,000 miles) in perfect condition. If they are decent on the trade I might pull the trigger.

  • ndmike88ndmike88 Posts: 154

    Just got back from the dealer. 2014 Passat SE with Sunroof & Nav(Tungsten Silver Metallic with Cornsilk Beige)...$31,375- $1,500 (savings and rebate)=$29,875-$13,980 (trade in)=$15,895+$475(fees)+$1315(sales tax)=$17,685 OTD. I'm going back tomorrow to see if I can get it for $15,000 OTD.
