I'm not going anywhere. I'm like that big heavy cast iron bath tub in a house you just bought. Too much trouble to get rid of, still works OK, and you can just ignore the ugly stains.

Still have my 2010 TDI Sportswagen, manual transmission, that I purchased new and took delivery of in September 2009. Approaching 16,800 miles (27,037 km) on the odometer as of 13 April 2018. It's my only vehicle.

Since I retired a few years back, haven't driven it as much as I did in the beginning. Sits in the garage all the time except when I occasionally take it out for some exercise. Throw a CTEK charger on the battery once a week to keep it charged. Still runs fine and looks close to pristine condition.

I'm definitely leaning towards the buyback. But currently nothing in VW's 2018 lineup I'm thrilled about. Probably go with Nissan, Toyota, Kia, maybe Subaru but want to stick with manual transmission, which is getting harder and harder to find these days in a car or SUV, along with some semblance of what I consider decent fuel economy. Using Consumer Reports, January 2018 issue, "New Cars Reliability Ratings", as a guide, along with other review sources like forums and YouTube, but not yet sold on any particular vehicle that's within my price range....@$28K max with buyback dollars figured in. Thus will end my 18+ years of driving VW TDI's, but maybe time for a change.

Still have my '02 Beetle. Daily driver with almost 70 mile round trip for work. Coming up on 345,000 miles and still going strong. Plans are in the works for a major refurb to keep it on the road for another few hundred thousand miles. It's completely paid for, so it's still cheaper than a new car.

yeah I had my 12 jetta paid off but then stupid me went and got a 15 passat so now I have a small car payment.
Oh well can't leave well enough alone but I do like the passat better, rides nice and gets better mileage the the jetta.
