    That might be hard to really say as taxes, license and dealers fees, etc. are essentially all over the place. So the agreed upon price might be a little cleaner to evaluate.
  • mzak1mzak1 Posts: 4
    Thanks for the reply, the agreed price without the tax and other fees was 24,200.00.
  • ruking1ruking1 Posts: 14,856
    Not addressing the 700 miles issue, that is considered a GREAT price.

    Do you know the current lease rates for a 2011 Jetta SE Auto Conv. 12,000/36?

    Thanks in advance
  • Just got my VW Golf and I'm loving it. I think I got a good deal, but I was curious what others are paying in other places.

    For $24,500, I was able to get the 2-door, manual golf with Xenon headlights, Dynaudio and sunroof from a dealership in Houston. Is that about average? Wasn't sure how fuel prices have impacted the sticker prices lately.

    Purchased 4/14/11 2011 Golf TDI 4dr DSG, Sunroof, Dynaudio, splashguards, floor mats and chrome exhaust tips, cold weather. Sticker $27,731, paid $25,805, with 3.19% @ 60 months. Car had been on the lot for 3 months and they had two others of the same color, so they really wanted to get rid of it. I stressed that I wanted a manual, but for the price, the DSG is just fine.

    What part of the USA did you buy your TDI?

    Looking for info from anyone who has recently purchased a 2011 4-dr Golf TDI (preferably automatic, but if you bought manual, that info is fine too) in the San Francisco Bay Area.

    Please respond with the following:

    Final negotiated price (without tax):
    Transmission type:
    Additional options purchased (i.e. Dynaudio Advanced Sound, Rear Side Airbags, etc.)
    Dealer city

    Thanks in advance!
  • Great thread. I'm shopping for a JSW TDI and just want to confirm that the only difference between PREMIUM PKG (P72) & WHEEL & SUNROOF PKG (P75) is just:

    - touchscreen navigation system
    - media device interface (MDI) w/iPod cable

    Trying to determine if the pricing difference is worth those 2 items.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey all,
    I was quoted a price of $23,800.00 on an MSRP of $25,514.00. Used a variety of consumer shopping tools to determine "deal or no deal". I feel it is a fair price for the vehicle. VW's buy and lease rates are pretty high considering the market. Buy rate 3.99%. I am quoted a Money Factor of .00181 and 50% residual on 15k per year. I would welcome any and all comments. Regards.

    Car Man, what do you think?
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hello sgt253. Volkswagen Credit's current buy rate lease money factor for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Jetta Sedan TDI is .00174. The residual value that you were quoted is low, too. VW Credit's current residual value for a 36 month, 15,000 mile per year lease of this car is 55%.

    Having said that, the selling price that you were quoted for this car is outstanding...below dealer invoice on a car that has no cash incentives available on it.

  • is 21,995 a good deal for a 2010 jetta sportwagon or do you think I can get it down lower because its a 2010 model?
  • gagricegagrice San DiegoPosts: 28,967
    If it is brand new, I would say it is a good buy. I don't think there is any changes in the Sportswagen from 2010 to 2011 MY.
  • it is a brand new from the dealership.

    2010 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen 4dr Auto SE PZEV SportWagen
    with navigation no sunroof

    it is a 2.5 L gas engine.
    has there been any problems with that particular engine? or the car in general?
  • sgt253sgt253 Posts: 6
    Thanks a lot for your information CAR MAN .Found out the dealer was making profit on back end of the lease via the residual value. How is this possible? Can leasing companies set their own residual values? Also, how can a dealership apply tax credit(s) to my deal from another source? Is this legal? Do I have to worry about tax fraud?
  • gagricegagrice San DiegoPosts: 28,967
    I thought it was the TDI. The engine is fine. I don't think you will get even EPA mileage they claim. That engine is not known for good mileage. That is the reason the dealer still has a 2010 on his lot. Everyone wants the diesel model. I think the ratio on the Sportswagen is 80% diesel sold. You will also take a bigger hit when you trade in with the gas engine. If you really like the car the price is probably pretty good.
  • ruking1ruking1 Posts: 14,856
    Indeed. Depending on the time frame, diesels will probably maintain higher value than the gassers. The 03 TDI Jetta vs the 03 1.8T Jetta (gasser) is an example. Just look on used cars Edmunds.com. The TDI was a $236 premium over the 1.8 T. FF to 2011 and the TDI is worth more. ( app 40%)

    Has anyone bought a New Sportwagen TDI or Jetta sedan TDI in the Dallas/Ft Worth area lately? I am looking at buying soon, but my first discussion started out at MSRP. Apparently they aren't too flexible right now?? I don't know that for sure yet because I am waiting on the other dealer quotes, but I was hoping to get some feedback from someone that purchased a TDI in the Dallas area (or in Texas) lately. I would be willing to take a road trip for a better deal.

    Hello All. I'm new to this forum and I was able to read some of the posts but I wanted to throw out my current deal I'm working on. First off I'd like to say clearly this is a bad time of the year to be car shopping. It's like pulling teeth to even get a salesman to respond to my questions or get me into the dealership.

    I was offered a 2011 Jetta TDI Automatic w/Nav (all the goodies including the chrome and dealer installed appearance package) for $24,500. They are currently working on trying to find the color I want but they got me some quotes. For a 36 month lease and nothing down (12K) they want $450/mo for 15k they want $465/mo. Now I've done some research and that seems really high even without money down.

    Their financing wasn't much better and I have no idea how they got these numbers because he gave me the standard rates and I did the math with tax, registration, tags, and $99 dealer fee. He quoted me $515/mo for 60 months (I was given 4.39% standard rate).

    I'm just wondering if I'm going nuts or if those numbers are real high...btw i'm in MD.
  • mzak1mzak1 Posts: 4
    Hey jmk421, Is the car your looking at the sportwagen? If so than the price of 24500 is great. The 4.39 rate is not. I bought a 2011 sportwagen Tdi with just no options for 24,200 with a rate of 1.9. I bought the car in early April.
    Hope the info helps.

    Nope it's the sedan. I think the price is good. I'm not liking the lease and finance offers. How do you like the sportwagon?
  • mnr49mnr49 Posts: 7
    I'd call Hamilton VW in New Jersey. They are a large volume dealer and had the best pricing of any dealers in the PA, MD, DE, NJ area. Your interest rate is negotiable--and seems quite high.

    Haven't bought a new car for 12 yrs, very out of practice, could sure use feedback.

    Lou KY area, I've narrowed to 2 cars I'd buy, but heavily leaning towards JSW TDI automatic transy totally loaded. Located exact color/options I wanted nearby. 2nd drive and talk today w/sales. I really wanted to talk bottomline $ but in a hurry after work and all I got was MSRP and printout of retail price sheet, which I already knew. They showed tiny $300 discount (I smirked), said low inventory on TDI, so premium price. Said when you're ready to make the deal, come back and we'll talk nitty gritty.

    $26,095 is retail ($24,800 is est invoice I know from other book sources)
    $770 dest charge

    They wrote out MSRP $29,650 less $300=$29,350 (including dest charge)
    (tagged on $60 license fee, $249.50 doc fee, tax $1601)
    $31.260.60 delivered. TOO HIGH

    Went in thinking $1,500-2,000K under MSRP. Would that be a fair offer to shoot back? Been in research/hunt for 6 weeks now, ready to make deal and move on, but also want best deal.

    See some getting $2,000-$2,696 under MSRP recently, in different parts of country; and I do believe inventory is getting tight on the 2011 JSW TDIs from research.

    Hope to be driving one by weekend.
  • gagricegagrice San DiegoPosts: 28,967
    I just looked at the inventory for Louisville area. Within a hundred miles there are 8 VW dealers with 42 JSW TDIs in stock. I would send an email to each of them with what you want. Some will respond, some will not. You can take the best deal to your dealer and say match it or I will go elsewhere. If you are trading and financing? That makes it easier for them to screw you over. If financing get an approval from your Credit Union if possible.

    If you are willing to go 200 miles there are 23 dealers with over 100 vehicles available. Use the Edmunds inventory feature to narrow down to what you want.
  • about2bjswabout2bjsw Posts: 6
    Many thanks. No financing, no trade (will sell 2000 Quest outright, good shape 138,000 20mpg, no issues, just ready to move up in mpg). Yes, keeping it bare for the deal. 2.7% credit union (in same building two offices down, their car books were helpful to compare $). Will check online inventory and do as you recommend.

    After my post, I later found Truecar.com pricing for local area good price/avg price. Wasn't necessarily planning to use that service, but was helpful to see what they are going for. Does anyone know if their $ are on target? (sorry, maybe a competitor for edmunds).
  • gagricegagrice San DiegoPosts: 28,967
    I would use any online source available to get the best price. Which dealer were you talking to? It is fine to name a dealer, just no salesman names, phone or email addresses.

    And welcome to the forum. We can use all the diesel fans we can get to promote the fuel in this country. I see diesel and RUG are very close in price in your area. That is great. That makes the TDI an even better deal.
  • mzak1mzak1 Posts: 4
    Big fan of the JSW Tdi. The interior is great and I believe you get more for your money by going with the JSW. Try a test drive and compare. Good Luck.
  • mark983mark983 Posts: 10
    I test drove the Sportwagen the other night and liked it, but I am leaning towards the sedan now. I have a quote for the following:

    Candy White w/ Titan Black interior. It has a sunroof and no navigation and manual transmission.
    MSRP is $24,414, Invoice is $23,344, and your sale price is $23,844 plus TT&L

    Is that a fair price? Any feedback would be great.
