Passed my 2011 Golf to the wife, largely to save it from the 40k-60k miles a year I drive for work. I have no intention of selling it however, a 2015 6M Jetta Sportswagon would be pretty sweet. Sad to say, I'd probably put my wife in my MK4 ALH Golf with 327k miles on it in the event that I purchase one.

I found my 2014 convertible Beetle that I turned back into VW in January 2017. I am seriously considering buying it back. Found it for sale at a VW dealership over 900 miles away when I did an online search using the VIN. Loved the car but have moved on and replaced.... if I buy it back then I will have 6 car/trucks total for 2 drivers. Not like we are complaining.....

So the question is, would you be money ahead, break even or lose money if you bought it again?

I should probably figure out a time to bring my '05 passat down for some service.

Still driving my 00, love that car. Fixing to take it to Bruce in Versailles for another TB change. Currently looking to buy either an 03 5spd wagon, or an 11-14 6spd Jetta Sportwagen. Would rather have a good condition 03, but people want 4-5k for those vs 8-10k for. 10 year newer Sportwagen with far less mileage.

Don’t still have, but have acquired one. 13 JSW TDI. Love it. Torque is amazing and love DSG and sunroof. Mileage isn’t bad either.

Have been very happy with all of them despite their quirks.
