Used the value of the $1000 gift card to get to that price. Was at $25,695. These cars are so nice. I almost picked one up for the wife. She is still chugging gas down in the Hemi Durango.
I got Sirius in my last car only for the winter $20 for 5 months. Nice and cheap.

Yep, they are nice. We really love our Jetta. We've had ours for a lil over two years now, zero problems. It's just a great lil car!

I like them a lot. I put 21,000 miles on the 2013 before trading it. Someone will love finding that car. Not too many used tdis with low miles on them.

Really, C?  You know that thingy on your roof will not keep the Jetta afloat.  I would really find it disheartening to see you on You Tube as a fail video.  :nuts:

But, but, I filled the back of the Jetta with Styrofoam peanuts!

Love my TDI.  Simplicity of the ALH, torque and 700+ miles per tank.  Gotta love it.

Yes, I'm in that camp too. ALH engines and 5 speed manual trannys. A 2001 and 2003 Jetta TDIs and I've managed a few 900+ mile tanks. Both have a lifetime average of over 50 mpg since I've owned them. Done extensive work on them both. The '01 was a salvaged car that needed to be re-engined due to the block (and other things) being broken in a rollover and the '03 was bought after the prior owner drove it until the TB broke (twice the recommended service interval). Some serious head/valve refurbishing and a complete TB system put it back on the road.
Hard to not love cars that get lower cost per mile than the Connie.

Thanks to Conrad for the invite to check out this forum and find a few more Concours and TDI owners.

Exactly.
Thankfully, I have no VW dealership within almost 100 miles of me, so I'm not tempted or lured into the "service" department.
Although, we did buy the wife's new/used Avalon at a VW dealership. That's the most time I've ever spent in one.:o

Don't mind Jim, JW. He's a little strange. After all, he does own a Prius.    :o
