Default Ordered a 2012 JSW TDI

Here goes! Delivery won't be for awhile. Black/beige, 6MT, pano. My first TDI and first VW since a 1996 Jetta GL. I drive 25-30k miles/year, mostly highway miles (lots of 4-5 hour trips). Couldn't pass up the highway mileage of the TDI. HPFP issues lurk out there, but I'm looking into an extended warranty and Geico MBI. Fell in love with the car, which is perfect for my needs and fun to drive. Looking forward to taking delivery!

Wow that is pretty soon. We are about to buy a 2011 JSW and that makes me feel like we should have waited for a 2012. That 1 month might be worth quite a bit on resale value.

I thought there is zero difference between the 2011s and 2012s other than how VW is packaging the options? I just got mine today. It still had the white protective film on it when I got to the dealer. $26,714 with the premium package. Build date 6-11.

Thanks everyone. The only substantive difference of which I'm aware for 2012 is that they changed the options and the Premium now comes with KESSY. chittychittybangbang said on turbodiesel.com that he thought there were some radio updates, too. I actually want to wait a little before purchasing, so ordering a 2012 worked out right for me time-wise. I also figure that I'd rather get a car at the beginning of the model year instead of the end, for re-sale purposes if nothing else . Also, I figure that there might be some model-year updates rolled-in that aren't really "changes." You would think they'd tweak some behind the scene things a little bit every model year. I was specifically hoping that by ordering a 2012 I'd have the best chance of getting any improved or re-engineered HPFP. Rumors are they've redone the HPFP a couple times but have never admitted doing so. At the end of the day, there was zero downside for me waiting to get the 2012. I told my car guy that any time after Labor Day would be perfect.

Looking at ordering a 2012 JSW too. Differences between the 11 and 12 are as follows:

1. New style allow wheels
2. Keyless entry
3. Push button start

Everything else is the same. I can get an 11 now but why when you can get the 12 with a few more features for about the same money]

I was told that the 12 will cost about $275 more than the 11 which isn't bad IMO.

I too have a 2012 Golf Wagon TDI Highline on order. Unless it's a US thing only, I don't recall any mention of the KESSY being a standard feature on my car. The main changes from MY 2011 to 2012 is dual climatronic standard and 17" alloys instead of the 16"s.

I have an '12 on order as well. Supposed delivery is on 8/8-22. According to initial estimates of 10-12 weeks.

I'd love to find an official list of "what's different".

There are some new colors available on the 2012s as well.

As far as resale being higher on a 2012 vs a 2011, the 2012 will always look a year newer to the uninformed buyer Also consider if your used buyer needs financing in 2017, suddenly the 2011 is 6-years old and ineligible for financing though some companies, while the 2012 is 5-years old and still eligible.

The differences I posted above came directly from Chris at Langhorne where I am ordering my car from so I feel pretty confident in what I stated.

I would have waited if I knew there was going to be keyless entry and push button start.

Update: my JSW was built on 18 Jul 11. Hope that it comes earlier than original date of 25 Aug. Waiting is trying, I want my JSW now
