Needed a new ride...
The 94 (225,000 miles) Subaru had developed a bad oil leak.
Got her for just about free. Put about $500 into it. (Set of tires, brakes, oil change) Got a year out of it.
Saved for the last couple months...planed on buying in the spring.
Was all set to buy another Subaru. They wouldnt budge on the price. So we stopped up the road at the VW place.
The guy comes out and says "How you doing? Thinking about trading in the Subaru?" I was stunned. Offered us $500.
Looked at a couple new and used...settled on a 2014 VW Golf 4 door TDI. Black on Black.
Will take some pics in the day light later but here is a representitive pic.
Its the base model but in a VW it seems you just get more. Lots of really cool features. More than I will ever use.
Lets just say "Red" was more than happy!
Which paid off for me....I cut things up and split them down!

Window sticker said $26,000. (This is the plain model with cloth interior TDI). The auto with leather is $30,000 + The GTI model us roughly $35-40k depending on options.
The gas, cloth 6 speed is like $21k
They gave us a bunch of incentives and $500 for our trade in's.

We have owned a VW Passat for the past 9 or 10 years. We won't by another VW EVER (well, unless I somehow become rich way beyond my needs and that is still a maybe, but probably not). Its a nice car, but so stinkin expensive to repair and maintain. We've put so much money into this thing lately that we can't even sell it now!
Lesson learned: DON'T EVER CHANGE THE BATTERY OR LET IT DIE WITHOUT THE COMPUTER THINGY THAT RESETS ALL THE CODES
Good Luck Buns!
