The price of the car was $23,600 plus $295 doc fee which everyone ends of paying. The $23,600 included the delivery fee of (approx $700). The .9% promotion was still in effect so I got that as well. The only other fee was tax which varies state to state.

Hi. Which state do you live in? I was told that I could only get 1.9% and OTD was $27. I'm in CT

I would check rates at various Credit Unions (they are member-owned cooperatives) (that are open to all members, many are now). I got best % thru credit union...one that was running a special for new car sales. That was last summer, but there are always specials running. And some banks do to. Google your area credit unions/bank name+New Car loans keywords and it should pop up if it's available. Nat'l car loans available too online if you're careful w/who you're using.
Your OTD sounds decent to me for 2012. Your list does not show panaromic sunroof, that mine had, so for the price difference and ..not looking at your other posts so not sure if it has NAV or not (see note below re that). (BTW we LOVE our panoramic roof, glad we went ahead and spent the $ for it, entertainment for our 6 yr old to watch stars at night, feels tad like a convertible on trips).
Jetta TDIs are still in demand so never going to get them dirt cheap like the other cars, so at some point you have to decide if you want to fly/drive somewhere for cheaper $ or get price down to the point you can live with. And also how much TIME you wish to invest in this project.
I bought fully loaded automatic Jetta TDI exactly 1 yr ago, took me 4-6 weeks to get EXACT car I wanted (even though I knew where my car was sitting on Ohio lot they would not trade/transport with most lots for trade w/another lesser model). Yes, I was very picky and wanted spec color inside/out white gold/black inside, but I was patient and nervously waited it out. I could have saved $ more if I had accepted another color or less add-ons of course.
Yr ago I paid $30K OTD (paid more IN tax 7%; KY 6% where I live, so tax added another $280, but that was offset by the NICE rubber sports mats package not in $ negotiated. Proved to be most valuable w/7yr old dropping drinks. Wouldn't buy a car w/o them now.
I had to email 10-12 places within 150 miles to get my car, but it worked out thanks to this Board's/kyfdx's help for how to negotiate and get bites. Only 3 lots would even entertain talking to me when I told them I needed no more than $30K OTD. In end had to drive 120 mi to Evansville (from Louisville) to get my car, but pleasant trip, gave me chance to try out my new car. I'd do it again, D-Patrick (can I say their name?? I'm not sure) group handled every single thing online and I just went and got my car, absolutely NO HASSLES.
One suggestion, from kyfdx was not worry about getting NAV system, given the expense of updating it (YUP..$199 software offer just got, which mine really needs as it was sooo outdated when I rec'd car it's not funny! That's the biggest complaint I've had with my car. Kyfdx said "I'd stick with a $150 Garmin, rather than pay the extra $1800-$3000 for NAV or Tech package on a new car." HE'S RIGHT I believe if you want to hold your $ down. But the car I wanted had it on it, so I bought it and have been happy with tech package. Nav is overdue to be updated but still very useful really. Use it all the time on trips.
Best car experience I've had, and best car I've ever had. Use my comments for whatever they are worth. Different regions/states are never the same deals I found out.

Just brought home a 2012 Sportwagen TDI DSG with sunroof package, protection package and 1st aid kit for $27,820. Invoice was $28,395. Dealer is Kempthorn in Canton, OH - well worth the drive from Cleveland. Standard Ohio $250 documentation fee plus about $35 for registration. They even found a grey one for me from PA.
Closest competitive quote was about $800 more.

That proves there are deals to be had on the JSW TDI. Keep us posted on how you like it. I don't think there are any big changes for the 2013. Hard to improve on perfection.

Not too sure one would call saving $800 a "good" deal, since the person has to drive out of his home city to get the deal.
I would love more rear legroom in the sportwagon, maybe when VW starts producing the wagon on the current Jetta that will happen.
