I have one it has 14,998 miles I get compliments all the time on it's style. Wait
til you take it for a 7 hour ride . I drove to from Newport Beach to Tempe AZ
on 3/4 of a tank of fuel. Sign up for a Pen Fed Credit Card and get 5% back on all fuel that knocks the 4.25 at Vallero to 4.03. The only design change I would make and have made is to put vinyl protector on top of rear bumper to
protect it when talking gear in and out of the tailgate. You can get a roll of it at Pepboys if your not handy a tint shop can install it.

My CPAP machine broke when blew a fuse on the board. I mention this b/c there is no site that offers advice on fixing appliances. I sent the CPAP to Medical equipment repair place but they could not repair it or find anyone else. I took the bull \by the horns. With a voltmeter and some help from Mar Vac in Costa Mesa. Found that the fuse was actually soldered onto the board where the power adapter 12 volt comes in logical. Then he sold me 1.99 fuse and problem fixed.I simply soldered a new fuse right on top of the old fuse and my 400.00 machine works
again. Our community is a large one so share your successes it might help someone else. I am
sure there are electronic boards that fail in cars that can be fixed like this.

That's a great tip on the rear bumper protection. Took it out with golf clubs today and was worried as I dragged a few things across the bumper. Leaving in 10 days to go to time share at Newport Beach, CA Marriott Villas. Looking forward to the trip and getting there in 1 tank of gas!!!

#685 of 721 On the fence: 2011 JSW TDI DSG for 26,700
May 01, 2011 (11:22 am)
Dealership in NJ is pushing a new Sportwagen TDI DSG with the only option being pano sunroof (and protection package which is of limited interest to me) for 26,730 including destination. Out the door about 29,130.
Dealer claims there's no more wiggle room, as this is just below invoice, but I see vigorlover (#678) buying the same car in CA with 17" wheels as well for $25,149 in December. Gives me pause. I don't want to be unreasonable/unrealistic but I am willing to wait for the best deal. Any thoughts on going rate would be much appreciated.
Also, would one ever convince the dealer to throw in installation of an ipod adapter? This particular car doesn't have the premium package with navigation, etc. Thanks for any input.

Perhaps the dealership was more willing to deal with me since I was buying at the very end of the year, and they wanted to get their numbers up to get more inventory or better kickbacks or whatever.

Got the Jetta SEw/con package no sun roof (model #1624Z3), test drive was what sold me, the price at Stevens Creek VW, $19,350, locked me. Based on TrueCar.com this should be a great price. It was a very smooth affair at the dealership, no pressure very friendly, highly recommend them.
