If you stay under 36k, you'll be happier.
Not if you have to walk the other 9K miles...

#295 of 332 Looking to buy a new 2010 GTI
Jun 13, 2010 (4:59 pm)
After long last, I have decided to bite the bullet and treat myself to a new car. My current search has led me to the 2010 VW GTI, and after having the opportunity to go on the road with one the other day, I am about 95% sure I want one. The only thing I'm uncertain about is the pricing and if I can reasonably push for any lower. Currently I'm looking at the following:
-2-door, cloth interior
-Bluetooth & Mats
I'm being priced $25.9K with another ~$1.8K or so TTL.
I'd appreciate any thoughts and hopefully looking forward to being a GTI owner!

Overstock says you can get $2200 off your gti around my zip code. Check around yours.

Overstock is not selling cars, same as Zag.com, Costco or Edmunds. They do sell your information to as many dealers as they can, hoping that dealers will drop prices competing with each other, while each one pays a fee to the referring site.
#298 of 332 Anyone in seattle area who bought a GTI recently?

The deal i am getting is $26,000 (plus tax&lic.) for 4dr, DSG, 18" Detroit, Rubber Mat Kit, Bluetooth. It's supposedly $360 above invoice. What do you think?
Jun 26, 2010 (2:22 pm)
Here is the deal I just got for my brother in law:
2010 2 door GTI with DSG tranz in United Grey Metalic
18" Detroit rims with summer tires
GTI mat kit
Cap Cost: $25,813.00 = $349 BELOW Invoice
Factory Invoice (according to True Car: $26,162.00)
Leased for 36 months with 15K year.
MF was .00185 (My BIL is credit challenged) = 4.44% Interest
Put 2K down which broke down as follows:
Acq fee: $625
Doc fee: $55.00
Tire fee: $9.00
Registration fee: $388
1st payment: $432.00
Cap cost reduction: $450.00
Mo payment with Cali (LA county taxes) = $431.60
Got it from LIVINGSTON VW in Woodland Hills, CA from the Internet dept. Very professional and very easy to deal with. Highly recommended
And just like bds231 said:
The dealers will tell you limited supply, no one wants to trade, that price is not feasable, etc etc etc
IT'S ALL CRAP!!
Do your research, walk in with a price you are willing to pay. Either they accept the deal or you walk and go to the next store!
Good luck all and happy driving!!

Sounds like a great deal. I do wonder why folks sign leases which exceed the mileage allowed under warranty. You will be responsible for tires - brakes - parts that will go to the next owner. Of course if you lease and then buy -- that makes some sense. Just a friendly question.
Jun 26, 2010 (5:23 pm)
The thing is-- I leased a 2006 jetta-- 15k a year-- 3 years, and I didn't have to pay a dime when i returned it even tho the warranty only went to 36K. Do the oil changes-- rotate the tires-- don't drive like a maniac-- try not to have to park as close to the store as you can (door dings), and you'll do fine.

I mentioned that to him and told him that if ANYTHING went wrong after the 36mo/36K warranty expired, it would be on his dime. That is why I tried to convince him, to choose another manufacturer that has a 48mo/50K but he was DEADSET on the GTI.
To each his own.
