I am not sure what incentives they have, but if this $2000 is true, then I would definately thing you would be able to do better. By what factor, I'm not sure.
Don't believe the things he says about a MT. Yes they aren't popular, but yet VW still makes them. I would advise looking at surrounding dealerships and finding one that has a couple manuals on the lot. When I went to get my car, the dealership I bought from had the exact car I wanted, and then the next closest dealership had 2 of them. We felt no pressure to buy at the first place, other than more convience, and they met our price and didn't try to BS that much (they are car dealers after all).
I wouldn't think color affects the price at all. I have a black one and absolutely love it.
I have no extra options on the car, it is the bare bones passat, which is plenty for me. Rims and the sport package would have been nice, but that adds another 3-4k to the price based on how they package the accessories.
I love the car so far, it's got alot of power, and I'm averaging 28.5 mpg in mixed city/highway driving. Plus I'm 6'3 and am able to fit more than comfortably driving. I don't even have the seat back all the way.
Let me know if you have any more questions, I'm happy to help as best I can.

#3150 of 3460 Picked up a 2006 Passat Lux Pkg 2 w/ Nav

On 3/23/2007 I picked up a used '06 Passat from Brother's Auto Sales in Sioux Falls, SD. Car is loaded with Luxury Pkg 2 and NAVI, does not have AWD. Car had 8500 miles on it and picked it up for $27,000 even. They have a sport pkg. 2 with AWD and NAVI for sale also. Asking $30k. I spent about 30 minutes at the dealership before I was on my way home. Great experience.

VW Manager at local Dealer told me they are extending a $5000 incentive which was supposed to end last month. That along with $1500 loyalty would bring cust cash to $6500. Depending how close you could bring price down to invoice, you could get a sick sick sick deal. I am contemplating trading my 05 in for an 07, depending how much i get for trade in.

"Port Prep" has been a standard fee on VWs for the past 12 years, at least...It is part of the Invoice price of the car, it is not an option...
#3155 of 3460 passat rebate or deal incentive?
Apr 10, 2007 (12:35 pm)
funny, i don't remember port prep being on the sticker like the destination fee is, if its charged to the dealer isn't it just part of their cost of doing business? i also don't recall paying it when i bought my 2000 passat 4 motion...
any insights on the 4motoin incentive, is it $3,500 or $5,000?

Is the Passat Incentive $ 3,500 for 4 motion only or any passat?

I smell a kink..."Port Prep", as I mentioned yesterday, is part of the Dealer's Invoice cost of the car, along with any Regional Advertising fees. BTW...the Ad Fees are different than local newspaper or TV spots that the Dealership purchases itself...That would be cost of business and customers are not charged for them. The Regional Ad fees are for buys that VWOA makes on behalf of all the Dealers in a given market...Bucks County, Philadelphia, and Atlantic City for example. Or, the NY metro area...NY, NJ and Conn. These fees all vary because of the different demographics...Don't believe Iowa or Kansas Dealers get charged much at all, if anything.
Your target price should not reflect anything other than the difference between MSRP and Invoice. And not paying Port Prep twice...
BTW...Is the Black Bass Hotel still great???
