Well VW finally approved sales of the new 2015 TDIs that are still on the dealer lots. Their current incentive is 5k off MSRP and 0% financing for well qualified. That is a very disappointing sales incentive, but there seems to be some people going for it.

I used to be a proud owner of a 2009 TDI. Magic word is "used" to be.

5k off a 2.5 year old car, is an insult. Even though it has zero miles on it.

VW killed the diesel market in the USA.

Three of my co-workers already put deposits down on them. They are putting new tires, battery, and DEF in them before selling since they have been sitting.

I too WAS a proud owner of a 2010 Jetta TDI. But after driving my 2012 1LT RS Cruze and the jetta back to back I enjoy driving the Cruze a lot more. 5k off would not entice me to get a newer TDI.

Buyback bucks plus 3 grand got me a 2 year old well-maintained 63K miles Cruze with new tires, new battery, tinted windows and best of all...No Payments. Thanks VW, never going back, CTD is far superior.

Just curious what you like better between the two. I cross-shopped the two in a sense (2012 Golf TDI vs 2012 Cruze). TBH, I liked the Golf a lot better, but it was quite pricey.

I think you would have to be a fool to buy a VW tdi now. I don't trust those cheating ba$stards. I can safely say I will never ever look at VW again, any car, any time.:ban:

Considering I got almost $10k off my 15 Cruze , I fail to see where that's a deal of any kind. VWUSA must be trying to recover some of the money they spent.

Hmmmm....I enjoy the driving experience in the cruze more. The Jetta I feel had better fit and finish and a better feeling 6spd... but it just felt numb to drive.

Why buy a two year old VW for 5k off when you can get a brand new diesel Cruze with those kind of incentives?
Because Chevy hasn't told anybody the car exists!

This. I can't believe people are buying these "new" TDIs.

That being said, there is one VW out there I'd consider, and that's a V10 TDI Touareg, because there's just nothing else out there like it, and VW would not make a direct profit on a used sale.

People just stupid.

The depreciated resale on those cars is WAY more than 5k!

Give it a month and those incentives will be much juicier. They're probably starting at a very high price point to see where demand is.

I called my local VW dealer and they had a Jetta that they were trying to sell me for $18k and 0% financing (which is only $5k off what the sticker price was in 2015...)

If it was around $10-14k, I might bite. But it's almost a 3 year old car that they admitted had been baking in the sun on some 17 acre lot in Fresno.

I like the VW aesthetic a lot more than the Chevy, but I don't like dealing with failures of parts that should never fail in the first place. Plus, I still have a bit of a grudge against VW for destroying (or almost destroying) a nascent diesel passenger car segment.
