#2 of 1253 17 Inch Wheels?
Oct 14, 2004 (8:47 am)
Finalizing my order on a 2005 Passat TDI GLS Wagon. Does anyone have any opinion on the improved ride or looks that the 17 inch wheels give? Full-boat on options and will get it for 1/2-way between invoice and sticker...

I have the same question about the 17" wheels too.
But the dealer I am talking to does not want to budge off of sticker or the 2005 Passat GLS TDI wagon they have on the lot with the leather package.
How did you get them to come of the sticker price? Who is you VW dealer. Maybe you could send me a private message to my email wdmoselyyahoo.com

No effort on my part concerning the price...that was their first offer and after seeing the prices here on this website, I snapped it up straight away...will email you off line.

#7 of 1253 Bad Experience at Reydel Volkswagon Edison, NJ
Nov 17, 2004 (5:06 am)
Had a pretty bad buying experience at Reydel VW in Edison NJ Yesterday. They did a bait and switch on me at the end and did not honor an agreement on the price of the car. Had some kind of Gap insurance that I never even got a policy for. They just could not stand that they had made a really good deal and I was ready to pay.
Salesman was inordinately slow; I guess because they were conniving in the back area. They were basically unresponsive to request in general. Not a place that you can do business. Try to avoid this dealership if you can.

If the deal was through VW Credit, Gap insurance is standard. Were they trying to charge extra for it?
#9 of 1253 response from tdi versus cicic

Gagprice, You are right I doubt if there are any 2004 TDIs left. However, there are 2005 TDI Jettas being sold at invoice. Even though they say 2005 they are exactly the same as 2004. The new model dubbed 2006 is substantially different and all-in-the-know know it is coming in March. The VW dealers are trying to hoodwink customers not aware of the new model coming.

Thanks for checking. I wonder if the dealers will be even more willing to deal when the 2006 models hit the showrooms. I know the dealer close to me in CA is not doing too well since they stopped the TDIs from coming into CA in 2004. I have never seen a customer in there when I stop by and ask about used TDIs. I would like to get one and leave it at my place in Hawaii. Not sure whether to get the Jetta or Passat Wagon. I would like a fully loaded with leather version. I can get it in Hawaii as they sell mostly TDIs they just stick to MSRP. I guess you can do that if you have the best mileage vehicles in a place where gas has always been high. I can get B100 over there and it is very price competitive with regular #2 diesel.
