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?

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

Hi all. I am looking to get a Jetta SE for my son in the next several months. Just wonder what kind of deals folks are getting for Jetta SE in Baltimore/Washington area? Should I wait until the cash for clunker craze is over?

Long time Doug. You still have your 330 convertible?
Clunker craze is just that. I'd wait.

Hello everyone. I am torn between leasing or buying the 2009 Jetta.
Solely looking at value (depreciation, etc.), would it be better leasing or buying? Enlighten me please. Thank you.

Yeah, it's been a long time since I posted here but I have been lurking on and off. I sold the 330 convertible few years ago and bought a 750i, a hell of a car I must say. Now the boy is learning to drive, I don't really want him to practice with my 750 or the wife's MDX, they are too big and too wide for him. I want to get him a Jetta SE. I know it's not the most reliable car out there but when I closed the door of the Jetta, I know it's a much more solid car than the Civic or the Corola or most other compact cars.
I sent emails to two dealers but they don't even bother to respond. Must be too busy with cash for clunker.
I think I will wait a bit, the 2010 model will be out anytime.

MSRP: 22,198 With clunker, it was $14,500 out the door. I'm quite psyched. Love the stick.. Love the car..

Just bought a Candy White Jetta SE automatic with bluetooth and premium ipod for $21,500 plus doc fees of $580 and sales tax. They didn't want to budge on the price, but I was able to squeeze hard on the value of my trade-in.
