Hello sgt253. Volkswagen Credit's current buy rate lease money factor for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Jetta Sedan TDI is .00174. The residual value that you were quoted is low, too. VW Credit's current residual value for a 36 month, 15,000 mile per year lease of this car is 55%.
Having said that, the selling price that you were quoted for this car is outstanding...below dealer invoice on a car that has no cash incentives available on it.

If it is brand new, I would say it is a good buy. I don't think there is any changes in the Sportswagen from 2010 to 2011 MY.

2010 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen 4dr Auto SE PZEV SportWagen

Thanks a lot for your information CAR MAN .Found out the dealer was making profit on back end of the lease via the residual value. How is this possible? Can leasing companies set their own residual values? Also, how can a dealership apply tax credit(s) to my deal from another source? Is this legal? Do I have to worry about tax fraud?

I thought it was the TDI. The engine is fine. I don't think you will get even EPA mileage they claim. That engine is not known for good mileage. That is the reason the dealer still has a 2010 on his lot. Everyone wants the diesel model. I think the ratio on the Sportswagen is 80% diesel sold. You will also take a bigger hit when you trade in with the gas engine. If you really like the car the price is probably pretty good.

Indeed. Depending on the time frame, diesels will probably maintain higher value than the gassers. The 03 TDI Jetta vs the 03 1.8T Jetta (gasser) is an example. Just look on used cars Edmunds.com. The TDI was a $236 premium over the 1.8 T. FF to 2011 and the TDI is worth more. ( app 40%)
#1116 of 1214 New Sportwagen TDI or Jetta sedan TDI

Has anyone bought a New Sportwagen TDI or Jetta sedan TDI in the Dallas/Ft Worth area lately? I am looking at buying soon, but my first discussion started out at MSRP. Apparently they aren't too flexible right now?? I don't know that for sure yet because I am waiting on the other dealer quotes, but I was hoping to get some feedback from someone that purchased a TDI in the Dallas area (or in Texas) lately. I would be willing to take a road trip for a better deal.

Hello All. I'm new to this forum and I was able to read some of the posts but I wanted to throw out my current deal I'm working on. First off I'd like to say clearly this is a bad time of the year to be car shopping. It's like pulling teeth to even get a salesman to respond to my questions or get me into the dealership.
I was offered a 2011 Jetta TDI Automatic w/Nav (all the goodies including the chrome and dealer installed appearance package) for $24,500. They are currently working on trying to find the color I want but they got me some quotes. For a 36 month lease and nothing down (12K) they want $450/mo for 15k they want $465/mo. Now I've done some research and that seems really high even without money down.
Their financing wasn't much better and I have no idea how they got these numbers because he gave me the standard rates and I did the math with tax, registration, tags, and $99 dealer fee. He quoted me $515/mo for 60 months (I was given 4.39% standard rate).
I'm just wondering if I'm going nuts or if those numbers are real high...btw i'm in MD.
