I work at a Metro Atlanta Dealer and waiting for the 2010 Sportwagen is definitely the way to go. If you are lucky enough to find a Sportwagen now you'll pay close to MSRP or over in some parts of the country. This close to a new model year and a facelift for the SW it would not be a good financial decision.
Our TDI SW's are on order and expected for 60 days or so, I'd encourage waiting.

The only VW dealership in Tulsa is asking MSRP + $2000 Market Adjustment + $700 Dealer Add Ons for all remaining Jetta TDI's. I offered MSRP - $500, and they didn't even consider it. Seems like cash for clunkers has driven up the demand, and combined with low supply, the dealer, at least in Tulsa, can get over retail for this car now.

I'm waaaaayyyy late to the Sportwagen TDI party...seems like I'm too late.
I was never in the market for a new car but once the cash for clunkers deal came along I started to look around (online) a bit and quickly realized that the Sportwagen TDI is the perfect car for me (lots of leg room, great mileage, and a wagon). I also have a new job and will do some serious commute miles for a few months and the ďclunkerĒ is not going to make it much longer.
I quickly realized that this car is very difficult to find. I live in the inland Pacific Northwest (90 minutes away from Spokane and 5 hours form Seattle). Looking around the NW it seems as though there are very few SW TDIs available. Yesterday I went up to Appleway VW in Spokane to just look at the gas SW and to my surprise they actually do have a Sportwagen TDI. It's a manual with 16" wheels and has the sunroof and the iPod adapter. The salesman disclosed immediately that this car was involved in an accident (a fender bender as it was pulling out of the lot and it was currently being fixed). He showed me the car back in the body shop area where it was apart and being fixed. He says that it will still be covered under warranty and the accident will never show up on a carfax report.
He also said that they will sell it at MSRP of $26095...and that's it...no dealing since it is such a hot item.
I was not ready to wheel and deal right then and there and thought I may have a leg up because of the little accident. After getting home and doing more research it seems as though I may be screwed as far as dealing goes. My "clunker" is getting quite bad though it can probably make it to Portland, Boise, or Seattle so Iím willing to travel a bit if it will save me some cash.
Any opinions would be appreciated...basically Iím wondering what kind of offer I should go it with. Iíve never purchased a new car before and everything I read talks about starting below invoice but the TDI seems like a different beast due to the demand.
If this is not the forum to post this "question" in sorry to waste your time.

Based on what you are saying, and what I know as a VW salesman - take the car at MSRP, or someone else will.
When he is telling you they will sell it at MSRP - there is no hidden meaning to it, don't waste anyone's time with offers.

Thanks...that what I thought. I could not pull the trigger due to the sunroof. Someone else did, though.
Looks like I'll just be looking at a regular Jetta TDI.

I am taking advantage of the cash for clunkers program and trading in my 1997 Jeep Cherokee country 4WD for a 2009 VW Jetta TDi Sportwagen. I am writing from Georgia and the only manual transmission wagon that I could find is in Chicago. I put my deposit down on Monday and driving up this weekend. The manual is a must for us. We have had the Jeep since new, it has 173000 miles. We are buying the Jetta TDi because we believe that it will last just as long (and hopefully longer) and get 40+ MPG. I thought it was crazy that no Tdi's were available in the SW US. The dealer in Chicago told me that this was the last one there as well. I called almost everywhere! I could find a couple auto trans, but no manual. Good luck if you are still looking. If that extra money gets approved from congress, you may be able to order a 2010, but you are risking it!

Were you able to get the Sportwagen at MSRP? If not, how much higher?
Jul 31, 2009 (4:13 pm)
We bought our Jetta S on Monday. Price was something like $17,977, and it came with the iPod adapter, rubber mats/trunk liner and alloy wheels. The price was about a thousand below sticker, and $500 below invoice. We got $3500 on cash for clunkers for our terminally rusting 1995 Isuzu Rodeo, so that was cool.
As an aside, I think the iPod adapter is kinda crappy, it doesn't function nearly as seamlessly as the one in our Honda Fit. Given its limited navigation functionality, I'd prefer to just have the basic AUX jack. But, that's what the car came with, and as we found out, finding S manuals is not easy. Most dealers only had one in stock.

Just bought a 2009 Jetta SE (candy white) automatic with Premium iPod, Bluetooth, and rubber mats (MSRP = $22,543; invoice = $21,292) for $19,800 plus tax/title. That's $1,492 under invoice. 3.9% financing. The car is great. Columbus, OH
