Volkswagen TDI Models Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    That looks like a great price. Where did you get it and how much work did you have to do to get that price?
  • tdifuntdifun Posts: 10
    I didn't have to work at all.. got it at fitzgerald automall and having it shipped to my house. It was still cheaper then what I could get it where I lived ro though costco program. Their prices are on the internet and when I took it to my local dealer they just said no we can't match that price.
  • Just picked up my white Jetta TDI with moonroof, automatic on June 2, 2009. Used the Costco Auto Program. Got it for $250 over invoice, plus dealer and VW had another $1000 off for end of month sale on TDI. I live in NY so with all cost plus tax, came out to Total $24949.64. (Had a trade in of $850 also on a '97 Civic) Thought the price was reasonable for the amount of car you get. Only thing I didn't like, was I had to travel over 30 miles to nearest participating Costco Auto dealership. My Jetta even has splash guards and ipod adapter (but reading other peoples review, I would have been better off with aux jack). Mileage great so far. Put on 200 miles already just to test it. Great pick up, but tends to slow down quickly when you take foot off the pedal.

    Going down today to check out a 2009.

    I've been quoted $21,009 (email) which includes destination, plus $100 doc and $10 for temp tag.

    It's a TDI in Salsa Red, 6 speed manual. Don't need/want sunroof (have a Mustang Convert). So pretty much no options.

    The price almost seems to good. But I do have it in writing.

    So your thoughts?

    Your quoted price or $21,000 for a Jetta TDI without the roof, sounds pretty close to the bone for the dealer.

    VW deals are so tough to find that I wish you would post the source of the offer, Dealership and Location. That's information everyone looking for one, needs.

    The FitzMall guys are asking $ 21,702 internet price for a TDI w/o the roof, but with the DSG powertrain, an extra $900 or so.
    Thats the lowest price on their inventory today.

    I will second that. Why don't you post the name of the dealer and city? It sounds like a deal, better than FitzMall or Costco deal.
    Those are my thoughts. How about an amended (updated) message?

    Just got back from the dealer.

    Paid $22,838 OTD price. Salsa Red with 6 speed manual.

    That included the JIM package, tax (7%), doc fee and temp tag.

    The dealer is VW of Shrewsbury in New Jersey. He had to get it from another dealer. So picking it up sometime next week.

    The only other option I might get is the bluetooth package. Can't see spending $500 but I have aftermarket bluetooth in my other cars and would prefer to have a factory/dealer kit where I can use the steering wheel control for it.

    Plus I should be getting a $1300 tax credit. Nice!

    I just looked at the dealer's inventory and you must have caught them sleeping.

    Their internet price posted on an 09' Jetta TDI with DSG. mats and liner, ipod adaptor and sunroof is $25,418. Sounds pretty much, MSRP to me.

    Just picked up a Silver 09 Jetta TDI, 6 speed manual, Sunroof, Rubber Mats, Spolier, 17" rims. MSRP 25,098 selling price 22,998... no haggle, no problems.

    I was given this price immediately, and it is $1800 LESS than edmunds what others are paying price and $1500 less than carsdirect selling price for the area.

    They also gave me $500 MORE for my trade then Edmunds quoted. Anyone looking for a TDI I STRONGLY recommend Palisades VW in West Nyack, NY. It is located right over the Tappan Zee bridge, just north of NYC.
    Send me a message, and I can recommend a great salesman.

    The dealers around here almost always post MSRP on all their vehicles. Hoping some sucker will walk in and pay full price. You have to get aggressive to move them below Invoice. One dealer has $5000 over MSRP on one of the new VW Touareg TDI V6 models. They may be like the Sportwagen, that is harder to find than the Jetta Sedan TDI. Makes getting a good deal a bit more of a challenge.
  • Not to worry. The quick slow down is a design feature of the transmission.
  • ruking1ruking1 Posts: 14,708
    Indeed he should also try the sequential 6 speed +/- shift gate !!!
  • The dealer says sticker price is 27,000 and will take 23,500. I did a builder online at and can build my own new one with more options for 26,488. How much do you think they should take off for the miles?
  • moparbadmoparbad Posts: 3,842
    $1500 to $1750 discount for the demo miles is what I'd ask for. At least $2500 UNDER invoice including the demo discount. There are a fair number of very low mileage used 09 TDI available so do a search on Autotrader and compare the used prices as a reference value.
  • mike91326mike91326 SoCalPosts: 245
    What advantage is there to getting the 17” rims? Are there any disadvantages?
  • moparbadmoparbad Posts: 3,842
    Disadvantage - at least $398 (invoice cost) more for 17'
    Disadvantage - more susceptible to damage from potholes and such
    Disadvantage - higher cost to replace 17' tires

    Advantage - minor improvement in handling. Most people would not notice a difference.
  • ruking1ruking1 Posts: 14,708
    add to disadvantages-

    4. 17 in tires do not last as long as 16 in stock tires
    5. loss of hp and torque
    6. lower fuel mileage
    7. loss of braking (takes longer to stop)
  • gagricegagrice San DiegoPosts: 28,850
    Don't forget the rougher ride with the 17" tires. The only advantage to low profile is handling. The rest is all negative, unless you count looks as important. I can't see them when I am driving so could care less.

    and all the things ruking added also.
  • m6userm6user Posts: 2,952
    Seems like that would adversely affect mpg but maybe save a little brakepad. But since mpg is the name of the game it seems strange that would be designed like that. There's probably a good reason that I'm not seeing, anybody know why?
  • ruking1ruking1 Posts: 14,708
    There are literally a host of unseen things about this 2009 VW Jetta TDI. An easy "no see em" is "no fuel draw" when no demand (let up on the throttle in this example) is made on the drive by wire accelerator pedal.
