    Go to and go to the forums. You'll find a topic called something like "Ask a VW Salesman" under the Passat B6 section. They will be able to locate what you're looking for.

    Hey guys,

    So, just to let you know, we just bought a 2007 Wolfsburg Passat yesterday. United Grey with black interior. MSRP 27,889 and we got it for $24,000 - trade of $3,800 which was very generous, so OTD was $20,200 +TTL. Very happy with the deal, the dealership / salesman and the vehicle. Only driven it for 36 hrs, but I'm impressed. It was between this, the Altima and the Saab contest this was the right choice.

    Good price. What region? -L
  • lservelserve Posts: 50
    Yes, I'm starting to shop - Chicago area, first price is at just below invoice. It looks like its not unreasonable to see pricing 1-2K below.

    Im looking @ a 07 V6 4MO with Lux #1 sticker @ 36020.

    I am trading an 02 Jetta 1.8T w/ 81K miles.

    With my trade I would have to finance 25K before TTL...

    Good deal?

    Just picked up a 2007 Wolfsburg Passat. Sticker $27,815...paid $22,500. Great experience with dealer as well. Quirk VW in Massacusetts.

    That is a great deal. Was that a cash deal?

    I've just started shopping for the Passat Wolfsburg Edition. I've been told 24,817. Sounds like some better deals available. $22,500 sounds like a great deal. I'm in MA and will contact Quirk. Any recommendation on the salesperson or sales manager that made it happen?
  • ssteigssssteigss Posts: 33
    Tha price included a $1,500 rebate from VW($750 if you use VW special financing rates) and $1,000 owner loyalty (I owned an 03' Jetta). Still they were at least $500-$600 lower than anywhere else I got a qoute from.
    Quirk Started at $23,100. I told them I had 2 qoutes a little lower than that already and they immediately went down to $22,500.They are one of the biggest volume dealers for VW in the country so they supposedly get some additional incentives other dealers dont get(at least thats what they told me).
    Do yourself a favor and start your inquiry through the internet with Quirk. I dealt with Jenn Bishop who is their Finance manager and also handles a lot of their internet inquires. If you go to the showroom you will still work with a salesman. Request Michael(African American, doesnt work Fridays) Nice guy and very knowledgable on vehicle.
    They qouted me about $500 below blue book(good cond.) on my trade. I got them up another $300 pretty easily....and it was around the same price 2 other dealers had given me.
    Hope this helps!

    I do live in Dallas, TX. I am thinking to buy a passat 2.0T with package 0. One dealer is pricing it for $23300. Is this a good deal? I would like to hear from someone who ha a buying experience in Dallas, TX.

  • Dealers in Western NY are taking a flat $5,000 off any Passsat sedan or wagon--Wolfsburg edition excluded.
  • lservelserve Posts: 50
    Was that a cash price? I just paid 25K for a Wolf w/ 0% finance. No previous VW.
  • ssteigssssteigss Posts: 33
    I financed and had a choice of 6% for 60 months or 72 months for 7%. Or I could have paid $750 more and taken the VW special finance rates. Made the decision to take the cash. Better if I decide to sell it before the loan is up, I can refinance the loan if rates go down or pay it off early. 2 other dealers offered me $23,100 for the Wolfsburg before even talking about payment.(I assume it included the $1,500 cash as supposed to the $750 with special financing).

    Robert47, is the MSRP 23,820 or 24820? Either way, $23300 is too high. I got a quote of 21,600 on a 24820 sticker car, which I thought was only a fair deal. I kept searching and ended up with $18,900 for a 23,820 sticker car. So you should be able to get close to $5000 off.

    Got a 2.0t. Package 1 + added window tint. Sticker 27670 without the tint. Paid 23000 with 1000 owner loyalty on cash deal.

    Anybody knows differences between the 2007 passat basic 2.0T and Value Edition(also called 2.0L)? There is $1000 price gap between these two trims, but I can not see any differences......Thanks alot. :confuse:
  • cidxiecidxie Posts: 7
    Just paid the deposit for 2007 passat value edition.
    $21150+TTL, Sticker $24895
  • I got a price quote of 2008 3.6L Passat Wagon, 4Motion, with VR6 package, plus rear side air bag and iPod adaptor of $38,100. MSRP is $40,329, and invoice is $37,680. Is this a good deal?
  • I got the following quote on a Quote on a 2008 Passat Wagon Lux with Navigation and Floor Mats

    MSRP: $33,815

    Offered to me for $31,799

    Anyone else buy this version and if so, what did you pay? According to Edmunds invoice is 31,493. This was the price for lease deal however I know you can negotiate price or what they call "Cap Cost" in a lease the same way you can when you're buying.
  • First-time car buyer living in Toronto looking for any pricing information on a 2008 Passat Wagon 2.0T automatic transmission. MSRP including freight is north of $37,210. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Also any general pricing information relating to effects of Canadian dollar appreciating. Thanks.

    Hi folks: I have two young kids that I now load into a '93 Honda Accord that, of course, has no modern safety features. We all test-drove an '07 Passat Wagon priced at $21,995. It's a 2.0L 4-cylinder machine with the following features:

    Air Conditioning, Driver Side Air Bag, Passenger Side Air Bag, Anti-Lock Brakes, Am/Fm Radio, Alloy Wheels, Bucket Seats, Compact Disc Player, Cruise Control, Heated Mirrors, Heated Seats, Keyless Entry, Leather Interior, Power Door Locks, Power Mirrors, Power Windows, Side Impact Air Bags, Sunroof, Tilt Steering Wheel

    It's also Volkswagen-certified.

    I'm not much of a car person, and so I'm just looking for very general advice about this purchase from the knowledgeable people on this forum. Things I'm concerned about: The Honda was pretty low-maintenance--what can I expect from the Passat? Is $21,995 a fair price? How should I haggle with the dealer? Are vinyl seats suitably resistant to the depredations--i.e., vomit, juices, etc.--of children, or should I hold out for leather?

    Any feedback is welcome! Thanks.
  • MSRP 26990 + fees = $27980.
    Dealer offering $23980. The car has around 2500 miles on it. It was likely used as the test-drive model by the dealership

    Is this a good deal for technically a one year old car, since they 2008 Passats are out already ??

    This is in the Denver-Boulder area.

    I'm a first-time shopper of the Passat - Level 1 options, and they're talking about $30K here, and that's an '07 model... can anyone tell me if that's too much? I LOVE this car, it rocks - almost signed the papers for an Altima and I'm so glad I didn't... but, they're very conservative on financing, Can you go in and beat them down on the number? I was hoping for closer to $27K?
  • hey everyone i would like to see what price i should be asking for when negotiating for this car.
    the dealer told me 24,900 plus all fees. he said that is invoice price. i think that this quote is VERY high considering that it is simply a base and its only option is alloy wheels and that the 2008 are already here. if anyone can shed some light on me it woul dbe very apprecited. thank's a lot to everyone in advance

    I have an 2006 Passat and it's my first VW. From my experience and from reading in other places you most likely will not have the same low maintenance experience that you had in the Honda. The Passat requires synthetic oil so you can expect to pay from $50 to $70 for an oil change. There also seem to be more little issues that need taken care of, nothing major but you'll have to go to the dealer for a few hours to a day to get them fixed. All that said, it is a great car and I most likely won't be buying a non-German (VW) car again. Just so much to fun, built solid and safe for the kids (I have 3). You should check out this site: link title. Lots of discussions on the Passat so you can get some other opinions of the car and to see if you're getting a good price. A lot more traffic there than here.

  • Does anyone have experiences of getting the sunroof installed on a base model that does not come with sunroof? If so what is the cost and how is the look and working condition and overall experience? I am considering buying 2008 Passat turbo that does not have a sunroof.
  • I have a 2003 V6 Passat Wagon that has 90K miles on it and has been great (knock on wood). So far, maintenance has not been worse than my 85 Accord. I also have a 00 Jetta with 180K miles on it, and it is starting to need some expensive repairs (so will probably be replaced soon), but I think a Honda at 180K would need the same type of maintenance. I know some people that have not been as luck with their VWs and have had major reliability problems from the start with their cars. Unfortunately, I think it's luck of the draw.

    Strange as it sounds, my tip is to pay close attention to the specific car you're going to buy when you test drive it. I ran into a couple of new Passats when looking for the 03 that had strange noises (whinier engine, small squeaks) when compared to other identical models I'd driven on the test drive so didn't buy them. Don't know if that made a difference, but it seems like VW reliability is very hit or miss and tied to specific cars. If it sounds good at the start, hopefully it will stay that way.

    As for the seats, the Passat has leather, which is much better than cloth for kids, but I think the vinyl would be even better. I had an old Mercedes with the vinyl inside, and it was great, you could even use Formula 409 to clean it. Good luck with the VW purchase.
