Default TDI's: A Hot Commodity

Interesting read: http://blog.caranddriver.com/hot-com...mag=cdb&dom=fb

It's believable, but are you guys experiencing the same thing?

music to my ears. I bought a used BB '15 Passat SE 6MT with 8K miles - somehow still has that new car smell.

Loving it, my '12 6MT going back

Typical research-free blog article. Talked to dealers in Oregon and CA, two of the hottest markets for TDIs. And there are still '15s on lots two months after they were released for sale.

I love TDIs, but I don't think they're a hot commodity, except among the few of us who really want them.

The 6M GSW is probably the only hot commodity of the TDIs.

There seems to be a lot of regional variation- I live in rural Minnesota 70 miles from the nearest city of over 100,000 and TDIs have always been popular with the many long distance commuters. Thus the VW dealer nearest me in Sioux Falls sold all their TDIs in just a couple days, and the dealer I bought mine from in Mankato was pretty well sold out in less than a week.

There is a very large banner sign in front of the VW dealer a mile from my house advertising 2015 TDI's for sale. It's been there for a while. I don't know what's in inventory but the sign has been up for a good while. Most everybody I know that had a CR turned them in for the cash, including me.

This area is Large Truck, Mercedes and BMW country so VW has had a hard time selling cars.

I wonder what kind of response I'd get to THIS ad: 2014 JSW for sale, 82K miles. Was in excellent condition till it got clobbered on Nov. 25 last year. Engine runs. Needs passenger side airbags, roof liner, rear bumper and axle. Chassis is sprung. Don't know if sunroof works. VW won't buy it back. Salvage title. Asking $15K (buyback value before the accident was $27K and change.)

If you don't mind saying, what did that cost you? Thinking about a similar move on a manual Passat... but maybe one with higher miles. My 2012 clutch failed at 110,000 miles, best to sell it back to VW, but no test drives are winning me over yet.

How come I'm hearing little or nothing about 2015 JSWs. All the talk seems to be about GSWs.

There is no such thing as '15 JSW. '14 JSW was replaced by '15 GSW. They're all the same anyway except nameplate.

Ok, thank you for that simple explanation. I thought the JSW was a Jetta, and the GSW is a Golf. I thought the Golf was a smaller car.

I noticed that the article described having to add DEF was "a sour note". Why? You will likely add more windshield washer fluid than DEF, yet who whines about adding washer fluid?!

Remember it's only rare and desirable when YOU don't have it.. otherwise, they're a dime a dozen
