My TDI was due to arrive today. The good news was that it arrived early on Friday the 9th! The bad news was I didn't get to my credit union before it closed. However, I went in to VW on Sunday and filled out all of the paperwork. I just need to pick up my check from the bank today after work and drop it off at the dealer!
I did get a chance to drive it around for about a half an hour yesterday. My girlfriend bought a manual 2009 Jetta Sportwagen in August. While the cabin is very similar, I was surprised how different the driving experience was. From the awesome seats, to the wonderful leather wrapped steering wheel...it really felt different.
Also, the shorter wheel base was discernible. And while the car sounded different from my girlfriend's gas Jetta, it wasn't louder. It's got some nice get up and go!

#925 of 1253 6 month evaluation
Apr 12, 2010 (5:57 pm)
I bought a 2010 Jetta TDI sedan with auto six months ago and having been tracking the mileage from the day I got it (5300 miles on it now). I found that in city driving that I am getting 29-30 mpg and I am getting 40 mpg on the highway. Drove to chicago from springfield Illinois last weekend and went a total of 440 miles using only 11 gallons , I think that is great. I am very happy with the ride,(17 inch wheels) and the handling was very responsive. I paid $200 under the MSRP so they did not deal too much but the tax credit and sales tax deduction really made me pull the trigger.

That's one of the better prices I've seen paid for the TDI. Would you mind telling me who the dealer was?
#927 of 1253 Good Deal?
Apr 15, 2010 (1:43 pm)
I got an offer for Jetta TDI Manual with MSRP $25425. Negotiated price of $24500 but the car has 400 miles on it. I'm trading in 2006 Infiniti G35X with KBB value of $17000 to $18000. The Stealership offered $16,500. I haven't purchase many cars and wonder if this is a good deal? Any suggestion will be great.

that seems like a decent deal to me and similar to the deals I've negotiated for my fleet of 03-06 TDIs, usually with trade-in.
btw, those 400 miles are probably dealer/demo miles.
but if the car has been titled before that's another story - I'd reevaluate in that case.
you sure are going to enjoy that car, especially with the manual transmission, dude! G35X must have had a slushbox transmission, eh?

Would you be able to give me a dealer name, because that beats anything I've been able to get, quote wise?

Thanks for the advice. Drove the manual/auto transmission on TDI and it was pretty awesome. G35X is a little sluggish transmission but it down shifts and holds rev in corners. You can corner faster but also wears on brakes. 280hp is heavy and brake pads don't last long.

I did my research through autotrader and see who came out with good bids. I can't give you mine that I'm still working on but this dealer made the same deal. He was out of state. The dealer is Bommarito VW and the website is http://www.bommaritovwhazelwood.com/
Ask for Charles Gilbert.
Hope he gives you a great deal.
