    Got the Jetta SEw/con package no sun roof (model #1624Z3), test drive was what sold me, the price at Stevens Creek VW, $19,350, locked me. Based on this should be a great price. It was a very smooth affair at the dealership, no pressure very friendly, highly recommend them.

    We are in CT and considering trading an 03 Forester towards a TDI sportwagen. Any suggestions of dealers/internet sales etc. to get the best deal?

    I leased a Pilot earlier this year and the Pilot forum had a dealer that no one could beat (but my dealer matched). Hoping to find something similar for the Jetta.

    This is to buy, not lease, and 1.9 for 60 months is nice but I'm looking for an improvement on the OTD pricing as well.

    I am looking to buy a new 2012 Sportwagen TDI automatic transmission and was wondering what is the best recent deal anyone has gotten on one?

  • ggeeooggeeoo Posts: 94
    I bought mine for 26,000 out the door with glass roof and lux pakage. Note as soon as you can replace tires with NOKIAN ENTYRE get another 11 mpg thats 63 mpg.

    ggeeoo, where and when did you buy yours?

    Also, why would adding those tires add 11 mpg?

    Also, what is the lux package?

    I'm looking to buy a new 2012 Jetta SE with the 6-speed automatic transmission and without the convenience package and sunroof options.

    One of my local dealers has quoted me a price over the phone of $17,990 which includes the destination fee (obviously) and $1000 rebate which is apparently being offered this month.

    Does anybody have an opinion of whether this is a good enough deal to go ahead and purchase this car now?

    Or should I wait for a month or two until the 2013 models start showing up and possibly get a better deal for this car?

  • fho2008fho2008 Posts: 393
    Is it an auto or DSG? There is a difference. They changed a ton of things with gen VI Jettas.....drove a Tiguan auto didnt like it, prefer DSG.
  • The price we were quoted was for the 6-speed automatic transmission.
  • fho2008fho2008 Posts: 393
    The DSG has been called an automatic but its really a manual that shifts by itself. Having DSG in my car and have driven the tig with a real 6 auto I prefer DSG.

    hi folks. getting ready to purchase a 2012 Jetta Sedan, TDI, premium with the Fender audio, with Nav. We are in North Carolina.
    have been given two quotes: one is for a manual, for 24,900. Other is for DSG, for 25,900.
    Are these good deals, based on what people are seeing?

    I am sure this has been discussed to death on this list elsewhere, but putting aside personal preference of manual vs. DSG, any considerations for resale value and possibly MPG?

    many thanks.

    Resale might be trickier with the manual, because so few Americans can actually drive one. How the difference in resale stacks up against the $1000 difference in purchase price probably depends on how long you keep it.

    And isn't the maintenance schedule pretty rigorous on the DSG?

  • Buying a 2013 Jetta 2.5L SEL Automatic Transmision w/Nav. Dealer told me I could buy at their $25,036 invoice price ($24,241 + $795 destination charge). Not including 'extras' of tax, RMV, doc fees and inspection (another $2,049.63). I'm going to ask the dealer to pay the extras so that I drive off at $25,036, which would be . Would that be a good deal? Are the rebates and incentives worth more than the $3,058 difference b/t MSRP and invoice (with the extras paid for by the dealer)? Is it unrealistic to think that the dealer would eat those other costs?
  • I'm in LA. Just got a quote (11/9/12) on a '13 Jetta SE automatic, w/convenience pkg and sunroof. MSRP $23,502, invoice $22,569, price $21,100. Seems like a good price. Any better deals recently?

    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!
