Flipped a bunch of them but planned on keeping my first TDI, a 2012 manual Passat. But a broken clutch spring (after my last flipper was turned in) made that car a ticking time bomb. So it had to go. I miss the manual transmission at times, but my commute changed to include a lot of stop and go, so the timing was OK. My “new” car, a 2014 Fusion hybrid, is the top trim level, which I enjoy. Best feature is the adaptive cruise. A game-changer for commuting and safety. Very happy with the Fusion, and expect less maintenance from the non-turbocharged engine.

My Son picked up this sweet 2015 Passat TDI SEL premium for a great price. He bought the car through Carvana and the deal went through exactly as advertised. No problems at all with Carvana.

I love this photo because my granddaughter snuck in a photobomb. And I'm shamelessly proud of my grandchildren, so there!

Driving my brand new JSW TDI 6M home (despite stalling it three times)................

I though it would be forever in my garage.

Enter the emissions cluster****, the credit cards, the buyback, the recent rock bottom dealer prices.............

I'm sure you get it.

2017 Jetta S 1.4 turbo 5M in garage - - - (only negative is the wagon with this same power plant PLUS A 6M is coming down the pike!!)

It's all good for this sailor.
