#90 of 1196 Passat GLS TDI sedan purchase price
Jul 17, 2005 (12:36 pm)
I'm looking at a new 2005 Passat, only option is leather with wood, which I don't really need. But it's the color we like and it's available (getting hard to find).
Edmund's TMV is $27,340. This is only $525 less than MSRP and still $1835 over invoice. Isn't it possible to do better (esp. with the manufacturer to dealer cash of $500 out there now)?
Would we be able to get a better discount on the wagon vs. the sedan since they are more prevalent at this dealer?

I love my 2005 Passat TDI wagon. I paid under invoice in Portland Oregon. No TDIs in CA. I got the leather/wood, ESP and 17" wheels. Great little car. You can get an email price from Armstrong VW in Gladstone Oregon and tell your dealer to match or you are taking a vacation to get your new car. I paid $26,589 cash out the door. If I was a previous VW owner it would have been $500 less.

Sounds good to me. I think buying the last of a model year is safer than the first. They have the bugs worked out.

I've been shopping for a 2005 Passat GLS TDI wagon, and I've found a number of dealers willing to part with one for a price at or close to invoice. My suggestion: go to the VW web page & search dealers w/in 250 miles of your zip code. Search through the inventory of every dealer, and ask for price quotes on the cars that meet your specs. You'll get back a range of prices, some of them at dealer cost. Then, use the numbers to negotiate with the dealers closest to you. It worked for me. I'm paying $25,286 (plus tax & DMV fees) for the car with leatherette. I found a few cars with the leather, but I couldn't justify the extra $ (not to mention the life of the beast). But you need to act quickly. I got quotes back on cars that were gone within days, and many dealers have none in stock at all. By the way, if you get an email back asking you to come in for a test drive, respond by asking for a price; they want to get you in there, but they'll give up a price if that's the only way to keep your attention.
I'm taking delivery later today, and I'm psyched!

For comparison, I just got:
2005 Passat GLS TDI sedan
no listed options. it did come with the heated seats & mirrors and nice floor mats. Standard leatherette seats.
There were about 5 left on the lot, and no more coming in, and no 2006 TDI models on the horizon.
I spent $23,677 (not eligible for owner loyalty). Pitcairn VW, Langhorne, PA
Tags came to another $145, and then PA sales tax. To get it the leather option, it would have cost another $1,000-$1,500.
I think you should be able to shave $1,000 off the price you quoted.
#97 of 1196 TDI $1200 OVER MSRP
Aug 25, 2005 (8:26 am)
Pretty funny, huh? Down here in the wonderful panhandle of Florida a few dealerships are trying to sell me a TDI for $1200 over MSRP. They act like I am an idiot when I don't agree with them it is a great deal.
For a few people the idea of a diesel is to conserve fuel and help he environment. For the rest of us we are cheap SOB's that want to save $$$. So why pay about $3000 more for a diesel when it will take you 5 or more years to break even?
We don't really want the Jetta in any form, but we like the idea of saving some serious scratch over our Murano by getting a base TDI.
