    Official US TDI prices/options

    Lokey vs Reeves After the very amusing post about Lokey VW in Tampa, I just have to say they're in a field of their own. Reeve's VW, also in Tampa, is selling for MSRP plus 289.00 Dealer Fee. I placed my order with Shaun in the Internet Sales Department. Regards, DEZ

    Try to order somewhere else "Tried to order '09, conflicting info from dealer" I emailed four VW dealers with specs of my choosing. Talked with all four on the phone, then went to the one with the best price and best replies to my answers. Ordered the car as I chose. I think it's time to...

    South Florida Sunshine GTG

    It's been a while. I've been pursuing another hobby ... Our 1978 Classic GMC Motorhome Edith II . We've put on 14,000 miles in a year, not much for a TDI at 50 MPG, but for a motorhome that gets 9 MPG, it's quite a bit of traveling. This summer we flew out to Arizona for a couple weeks, then...

    Wife needs a new car. Why not a TDI?

    You mean you didn't get her to a dealer yet? Buy new if you can swing it, the warranty helps get any minor problems out of the way. If you go used, get the current design, which would be 1999 1/2 year change, for the Jetta, that's called the A4 design. I also think the Jetta has the...

    Dealer Says Battery Needs To Be Changed At Dealership

    Yes, according to all dealerships it is common knowledge that they have to reset your money to their pockets. PS. When I replaced my battery with the Optima, I did not have to reset the radio code, but I had the code ready just in case.

    Anyone use "slick 50" or similar??

    Slick 50 BAD!!! Synthetic oil GOOD!!! The Slick 50 will clog up your oil filter, and mess up the engine. DON'T USE IT!!! I read that you already put it in your engine. NOT GOOD. Next time try asking your question before doing stuff like this. Too bad for you. The engine with proper oil...
