Sounds like a real nice car for the price. My mom liked the jetta but the car is way to cramped. The passat was more for us and the new body style jetta is about the same size of the passat and we were thinking of looking into one of those but we only found them in 5spd manual and my mom doesnt want to drive a manual, i wouldnt mind it manual tdi's get better mpg's then the auto trannys but hey its wat she wants

winter is a good time to get a deal on about any vehicle....except four wheel drive.

two weeks ago i helped my mom buy a replacement car for hers which she wrecked. bought a very clean low miles example for $1800 under average retail book at a dealer. 'course it was a buick at a toyota dealer.
