Default Talk me off the edge - Am I crazy to go for round three?

Owned a 2011, liked it. traded it in on a 2015 (GSW SEL), which I love.

Our 2015 (67K miles now) is getting turned in on the 16th.

Looking at several SE/SEL golfs + light package with 25K and under mileage in the 17-18K range in my region.

I commute 20K miles a year. Fuel is mostly a wash, maybe a little cheaper to run a 38 MPG gasser. That 162K warranty, though.

I do like my GSW, but don't need two wagons as we have an outback. This is just to be a small zippy commuter car. Am I thick headed for going into one of these again? I would NOT be doing it without the warranty......

Yeah, buy the Golf with the warranty. If I was working (retired now after 35 years in oil & gas), I would be back in a diesel again. But I bought a 2017 Jetta S TSI for under $15K brand new.

I miss my diesel......and may pick up ANOTHER ALH or PD just to have one again.

You are the one that has to drive the car. Get what you want. We all know you want the diesel. Come to the light..
