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.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
This is another candidate for a sticky. There appears to be an inescapable human tendency to mistakenly attribute one's own wants and desires to the rest of the human race. Most people in this country not only don't drive diesels, they're only peripherally aware of them. The only person in our rather large extended family who had ever heard of Dieselgate was one of our sons— who happened to have had one of the affected TDIs, which he has since turned in.Remember it's only rare and desirable when YOU don't have it.. otherwise, they're a dime a dozen
For years the Jetta was the sedan version of a Golf, with a different grill and a trunk added, which stuck out a foot or so beyond the hatchback length. The wagon has the same rear overhang as the sedan, hence the larger cargo area. The currrent generation seven Jetta does not share quite as many elements with the Golf, but is still the same basic size category, unlike the Passat which is the next size up.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.
A Jetta is a Jetta, smallish sedan. A Golf is a Golf, smallish hatchback, 2 or 4 doors. A Golf Sportwagon (GSW, previously JSW) is a smallish wagon with 4 doors, longer than a standard Golf.Ok, thank you for that simple explanation. I thought the JSW was a Jetta, and the GSW is a Golf.

Odd thing about supply and demandTypical 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.
Now that is funny.....I tried to buy several of Jacks cars. He wouldn't sell to me because I was offering what they were worth.....probably with Jack is his driving style is not good for these cars.....Maybe Jack is interested in it...oh, wait, he just bought a Chevrolet.
Not knowing who Jack isNow that is funny.....I tried to buy several of Jacks cars. He wouldn't sell to me because I was offering what they were worth....
Agreed on regional issues.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.
Actually, JSWs are MK5s with a few mk6 electronics added in 2010.Keep in mind that the Jetta Sportwagen was Mk6 platform while the Golf Sportwagen is Mk7 platform riding on the MQB chassis and with a 3rd gen EA288 engine with DEF.
Jack has offered me three of his cars, and I did buy one. Actually in the case of the B4 his driving style was good for it. I say it had the longest break-in in history. Runs great at 283K miles.Now that is funny.....I tried to buy several of Jacks cars.
