#2964 of 3461 Passat 2.0T VE with 16" alloy wheels
May 06, 2006 (4:22 am)
Took delivery of a black 2006 Passat 2.0T Value Edition with the 16" alloy wheels that come standard on the non-VE 2.0T (these are not an available option on the VE but I got the dealer to add them in for me).
After contacting the internet sales manager and settling on the basic terms for the lease, I drove over to the dealership so they could look at my trade (a 2004 Honda Accord LX).
Long story short, I ended up leasing the car for 36 months with 12K miles per year. They paid off the Accord plus $300. I gave them my first payment of $300/month and I was out the door. I am really happy with the car so far and am extremely happy I upgraded the wheels.
My out the door price including sales tax and fees was $300/month with $600 down ($300 out of pocket and the $300 from my trade).
I think I did pretty well considering the current promotion VW is offering on the VE (without the alloy wheels) with the $600 down - would have had me at a payment, including tax, of $326/month.
Hope this maybe helps someone on their deal.

I had a less than pleasant buying experience to say the least. The car arrived 10 weeks after the order was placed. The salesman never called me to give me updates during the 10 week wait period. I needed to follow up with the sales team to get information about my car. I requested price quotes on accessories for the new wagon via email but never received the correct information except when I finally contacted the dealer by phone.
The sales manager appraised my current vehicle but never called me with a quote! How rude! Once again I had to f/u with the dealer. The SM said he gave the quote to my salesman. My salesman never called me.
I told the SM that I didn't want to be represented by the original salesman and the sm agreed.
I financed the car over three years. The dealer marked up the factory offer of 2.9% to 3.9%. A one percent mark up?
The dealer also passed along advertising fees as part of the invoice price and a 25 dollar port fee.
The dealer only apologized for all the poor communication along the way. The dealer didn't offer a complimentary first oil change. As for the accessories, I was given the number of the parts department for further assistance.

A simple question.....Why did you still buy from them??? Did they earn your business with their professionalism?

Can someone help me out and tell me if this is a good deal?
06 2.0T. Package 1, and Nav. 1500 miles.
25,195. I'm going crazy trying to find a new vehicle and this one seems to be a potential winner.

The price I got on a lease offer for the same package was about 27,500 which also factored in a trade in value of 1500 against bank fees , down payments etc. If you're buying and are looking for really better numbers, have you considered a 2005 with 20-30k , you'd still have plenty of warranty protection and could be saving at least 4k more. We're pretty close to the 2007's and you might do even better on a 2006 if you wait a few months, but if you decide to take it , you're not getting hurt at 25,200. Keep in mind , the vinyl interior doesn't breath as well as leather. I like the package 2.

Just purchased a new, 2006 3.6 Passat from Osborn VW.
The car is loaded with Sport package #2, Nav. system and the MSRP was $38,400. After "some" negotiations, I was able to drop the purchase price to $34,400 ($800 below the invoice). The car is fantastic, drives like a most superior, luxury cars out there.
Any way, just wanted to share my experience the the price.

I don't have the worksheet on this deal, but after shopping around it was the best I could do... Can anybody confirm this is a competitive deal? I am supposed to go in tomorrow to take delivery, but I'm going to keep shopping until the last minute to make sure I'm not getting ripped.

igenov - Was $800 below invoice the price that comes up on Edmunds or KBB or the dealer invoice (which typically runs $300-400 more than Edumds or KBB)?
