That's the route we took and our 2014 Jetta TDI "Premium" was a great experience.
Funny, I've been looking on Carvana on and off for months and my search always came up empty (no cars matching my search). I might have to keep trying. I like the idea of the return policy with full refund. Do they refund the shipping cost too? (wouldn't that be nice )

No refund on shipping, no.

And I had to tweak my search to find them too. In some cases, not spelling out "TDI" or "diesel" in the keyword search helped. Then I could refine using the filters on the left side where you can select fuel type. Instead of "gas, electric, or hybrid," select "other."

This should bring up all diesels. Doing it this way just now brings up pages and pages of VW TDIs (and other diesels).
BMW X3d // 52xxx miles // 35 MPG & GLK250 // 119xxx miles // 32 MPG
Jetta TDI // 49xxx miles // 39 MPG - sold
Golf TDI // 45xxx miles // 38 MPG - buyback'ed
Bora TDI // 146xxx miles // 42 MPG - sold
Jetta TDI // 317xxx miles // 44 MPG - sold

Default Cpo

I purchased my '13 CPO JSW with 57k miles which was in very nice condition inside and out. When I got home and put it up on my four post lift, I was very surprised to see a lot of rust on the underneath suspension. As a result, I spent the weekend wire brushing rust and undercoating afterward. Lesson learned.

TDI(s): 12 JSW 6-sp

I recently bought my '12 JSW TDI with 61k on it out of state... I flew from SoCal to Portland, OR and then drove it home. Wasn't easy finding a '12-14 white manual black interior jsw with a sunroof.

Used car lot, they took it to have it inspected for me at shop of my choice (only way I'll buy a car sight unseen... as I've bought many out of state) and the owner told me if I got there and for any reason I didn't want to buy it for what we agreed on, then he'd pay for my plane ticket there and back.

So far, have put about 4k miles on it and has been a great car.

Getting the seller's skin in the game seems to be one of the factors for increased success. The dealership I got my buddy's golf from came out of AZ but we meet them on the border, which was nearly a three hour one way trip and two vehicles for them. Cuts down on the shenanigans.

I would recommend going to see it. I just flew 900 miles to buy my 2015 passat. 43,000 miles. Looked at a couple near me but wasn't what I wanted. I was surprised how many flaws these cars can have being so young. I really wanted a 6sp manual. Mine was a cpo car. Figured it was a pretty low risk trip but I was surprised when I drove it. Needed front rotors. Not a big deal but not thrilled about working on a car I just bought that's certified. Don't know if that was pencil whipped but I wasn't gonna let that scare me away. And over the weekend so no service help. Overall I'm pleased with the experience but just be careful out there. My brother lived nearby so that made the trip more worthy to me as well. Good luck!
