    Sat in a couple of these the other day and really loved the perforated leather seats, very comfortable. And the dash was laid out very nicely...very ergonomic where everything was right where it should be. The exterior is nicely done for a compact car...they had a red one in the showroom which was so glossy, absolutely beautiful. The only bad thing was the so so mileage from the 5 cylinder engine. But overall, something I could live with as a dd.

  • I got a quote on the East Coast (Philly suburbs) for the exact same car for $21,151 for auto, 20,151 manual including destination charge. Thinking on making the deal, have been emailing back and forth with 2 dealers for a week now.

    just got back with my girlfriend who just purchased her first brand new car ever after many years of used cars.she got a 2013 vw jetta S with auto.only additional options were floor mats and first aid kit.msrp was $18,570.00 and the final negotiated price was $17,000.00..i test drove this car as well and it is extremly very slow with only 115 hp..iam assuming here that the 0-60 run would be in between 10-15 seconds.but my girlfriend wanted to keep the price low and so you might say that she got what she paid for..i tried talking her into getting the SE model with 170 hp but she didn't want to spend the extra bucks.however,what is nice here is that VW has included 3 years of free maintanence including oil changes and tire rotations....

    just returned this morning with a friend of mine who was comparing 2 cars that he was interested in.2013 VW jetta S and 2013 hyundai elantra gls with preffered package and auto.the msrp for the jetta S model was $18,800.00 and the msrp for the hyundai elantra was $19,685.00....hard to beleive that only 800 bucks seperates these 2 cars and the elantra offers way more standard features.these are the things that the elantra has that the vw is missing.better warranty,more power,sat radio,steering wheel controls,bluetooth,alloy wheels,fog lights,heated seats,ect...why in the world would anybody choose the vw over the elantra for only a 800 dollar difference???

    Your posts are very hard to read. Please use capital letters at the start of each sentence and proper skip two spaces after the end of a sentence. Makes one's posts easier to read and understand with the use of proper English and punctuation. Just a thought...look at other posts and maybe you'll understand what I mean.

    Dealer fee?

    WTF is that?

    A few years ago I was looking for a truck....the saleslady said "theres a $500 city of ------ fee on every vehicle we sell."

    I walked.

    A few years later I bought my VW, you could throw a rock and hit the dealer that tried pulling that fee BS on me...right down the street, I would tell em what to do with the fee.
  • I have a car local to me being offered for $19K at a dealer. It is a CPO and has just shy of 5K miles on it. I offered $17.3 and they rejected it. Wondering how much wiggle room I have here. The CPO does get an extra 24K mile dealer warranty but I'm not planning on keeping the car that long. Thoughts on price?

    What exactly is in the Convenience Package? These are nice looking vehicles especially in red and am anxious to try one at work. I've only seen one so far in all the vehicles that we have transported and if it's anything like the Passat I drove, I know I'm gonna like it. Not crazy for a sunroof but if I bought a CPO unit that had one, I'd suffer with! I prefer the alloys but from what I've seen, not all SE models come with them and all that I've seen at hertz have the wheel covers which look like crap actually...they're not even the bolt on type! Though I'm not a VW fan, if I had to, I'd buy one and hope that all the gremlins had been exorsized!

    Sounds like a really good deal with all those goodies. Have driven the Jetta and it really is a nice daily driver. All the extra's just add to the fun of the car. Personally, I really like the red and blue colors. They have a red one at the Mazda dealer across the street I'd love to test drive. Still afraid of all the electrical gremlins that seem to plague VW's and their coil pack issues so doubt I'd ever purchase one but one never knows what the future will hold!

    Usaa had a $2100 of this model (runs of truecar but a little better deal): Then I got lucky with a $422 price beater in Orlando VW and to my surprise my local Brandon dealer matched the deal + $200 for driving in the color we wanted! OTD $28,200.00 with a tag transfer. For those who want to know I drove this model around town and compared it to the tdi; tdi did great in town of 38mpg driven lightly, but the hybrid beat it with 47mpg driven lightly! We end up in car lines for children that would hurt our mpg in tdi too, so we did think too hard between the models ... i just hope resale is close to the stealer TDI (best in country!)!

    By the way Usaa did a 60 mo. 1.75% finance deal!!! I also got upgraded 17" wheel & tire package for $545 (passat new take off wheels) and a leather interior$1100 installed. Can I post pictures here?
  • I just purchased a 2013 Jetta TDI with DSG. Sticker price was $25,055, which included floormats ($235), first aid kit ($35), and a credit of $100 for non-power driver's seat.

    Purchase price was $21,500, plus 6% sales tax of $1,343.75, doc fee of $179, and license fees of approximately $165, for an OTD price of $23,200.

    I also got 0% financing for 36 months and VW of America is paying the first monthly payment of $500 which effectively lowers the price to $21,000 plus TTL. The car had been in inventory for 6 months and I think they were motivated to move it. I ended up with a better deal than I thought possible. The dealership experience was gimmicks.

    Holy cow! $3500 off sticker on a diesel? Things really have changed.

    Prices Paid, Lease Questions, SUVs

  • The deal offerred by the dealer was on that car only. I could not substitute the price for a different color combo which was fine as the color combo of platinum gray/black was acceptable. I know the car had been there for six months based on the date of the state safety inspection sticker. It had been stored at an off-site lot and only had 10 miles on the odometer. I am not sure why the price on that car was so aggressive, but I guess I was at the right place at the right time. i originally went in to look at a SE convenience package 2.5, but was willing to reach for a TDI at that price.
  • I just got my Jetta S in NY for 169/month and 2190 due at signing including all taxes and fees. Awesome car and its good on gas.

    Just purchased a 2013 Jetta TDI w/ Premium and Navigation.
    17" wheels part of the package
    Plus TDI mats.
    $25,500 plus tax and DMV fees
    What makes this deal incredible is that they also bought out a lease which had 13 months to go.

    '..bought out a lease which had 13 months to go. '
    1 - Congrats!
    2 - Exactly how does something like that work?
    - Ray
    5 months left on a lease....
  • rrocksrrocks Posts: 13
    @rayainsw, I think this was possible because the lease was through VW and the dealer I went to runs a healthy used VW/Audi facility. In other words, they got the payoff amount from VW and agreed to buy the car for that amount. BEFORE signing for the Jetta, we signed the paper selling them the leased car.

    I would be very careful working out this type of situation because you are basically doing two negotiations -- one selling them your lease and another for the price of the new car. Some factors are whether they are interested in your (used) leased car and whether you owe more on the lease payoff than they are willing to pay. And also if they really want to sell the car you are buying.
