Hi there, I am new here so I apologize if you guys have covered this already. Read some old threads and didn't find the answer. So I'm looking to lease a 2012/2013 Golf. VW is offering their big, sign and drive event with 0 down, 0 deposit and $240 a month for manual. Is that a good deal for a VW? This will be the first time I'm leasing a VW ... Read More
I'd be happy to help you out, billdct. Wow, expensive car, but a nice one :). Your guess about the money factors not being great was spot on. Volkswagen Credit's September buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Golf R with 12,000 miles per year are .00157 and 52%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

Flightnurse, Right you are. VW got other stuff up their slieves. Audi is bringing the Audi A6and A8 TDI's over to the US. Luxury + AWD + Good MPG. THe A4's and TT's will follow. Have you checked on the VW Lupo? It has set records over there. It is a cheap little car and gets between 80 to 120mpg. Google it. It's interesting. There is the Smart Car for 2. ... Read More
It wont make a dent in the GM's Cafe #'s if they do not sell. VW has positioned itself well for the 56.5MPG. Both GM and Ford missed the boat for not bring over a GOOD diesel car/engine combo years ago..
Here's some chatter from 'gearhead' about the diesel Cruze........................ " according to sources in the Associated Press, GM is planning to sell a diesel-powered Chevy Cruze right here in the U.S. And it could achieve up to 50 mpg…with a healthy dose of torque to go with it. This is basically the same story that made its way around the Internet back in February, only this time, with a date attached. ... Read More
I think you are stretching it a bit on the price of gas, and IF it does reach that high, diesel will be close to $9/gallon... At that price, I would have a elec car, since I wouldn't have to worry about the fuel price, and since Solar is being installed on the house this week, it would cost next to nothing to run it. On a flight to Detroit there ... Read More
B, Your ?'s about the latest diesel's seem to be quite dated. I have been driving the VWdiesels since the 70's. The new cars do not smell. They don't smoke and they are quiet. When gas goes to 8.49 a gallon in a couple of years. These cars will be sought after. GM and Ford already have cars and trucks like these but just don't sell the in the US, Yet. ... Read More
Hi, My 17 year son lives about 800 miles away from me. I am looking to get him a safe reliable car. Two possibilities are the Golf and the Civic. One think that I worry about is the size of the Golf and it's wheelbase only being 165in long; the passengers rear passengers seem really close to the rear bumper. Should I be concerned about this? Consumer reports doesn't seem to ... Read More
Hi Vanessa. You may be able to find a dealer that will order you a stripped 4-Dr Golf, but there might be a few fairly basic ones out there on dealer lots already. Volkswagen is currently providing a $750 cash incentive on leases of this car through VW Credit.

Hi Car Guy, I'm interested in a 2012 4 dr Golf. Just the basics. On the VW main site it says priced from $19795 (not including $770 dest charge). Can I order this car without all of the extras you find from a car already on the lot or are those easy to negotiate down? If I can order it, how long should I expect to wait? Also are there any ...

hello - I would like to know where this information came from, because my dealer quoted me .00021 and 52% (on a 4 door Golf Automatic 2012 with sunroof & convenience package) BUT I don't believe him based on what you had written (.00014 & 53%) Can you help me or provide your source of knowledge? I already tried contacting VW Credit directly. Thanks!!!
Hi Car_man. A VW dealer has a 2012 2.5 4 door Golf with Convenience and Sunroof, but I'm not sure if the money factor and residual for 10,000 miles a year, 3 years are the same as for the Golf with Convenience only, which you recently told me are 0.00014 and 53%. Would you please check on this? Thanks! :) hpowders

Hi Car Man, Could you please tell me what the current RV & MF numbers are for a 2012 Golf TDI 4Dr MT (Sunroof & Navig.)? This would be for a 24 month lease @ 12k mi. per yr. Thank you!
How do you breach in the TDI, glazing???, just purchased one and love it so far but want to do right by it. Thank you
Would you buy this car again? How are the engine noise and road noise? Does the exhaust smell bad? I had a Ford pickup. Whew! We'll be using it for city driving mostly. Thanks, Jody
A well-broken-in TDI engine can achieve much better than your 40.2MPG you are getting on a new engine. The TDI engine takes up to 30,000 miles to 'break in'. During that time, if properly managed, you can expect the piston-rings to seat and compression readings to go up and level off. I was meticulous when I broke-in my TDI. I took measures to ensure the cylinder-walls did not "glaze" before the ... Read More

Keep us posted on your experience with your TDI. I did not realize they are built in Germany. No wonder they are very popular and hard to get a great deal on.
I just bouht a 2012 Golf TDI 4 door. Engine and transmission are made in Wolfsburg and the vehicle is assembled in Wolfsburg. With a background in manufacturing, I believe that some manufacturing facilities exhibit better quality control than others. I am hoping this is the case with my Wolfsburg Golf. So far, after 750 miles, this car is awesome. Great steering, brakimg, suspension, And "cockpit". Averaging 40.2 mpg.

When the NAV in my 2007 Sequoia died in 2009, it took several months to get a replacement from Denso in New Delhi, India. I think the TDI engines are all made in Poland. I don't think there is ANY 100% USA made vehicle.
Spot on. My Volvo S60, ('06), was assembled in Belgium but the bits came from all over the place. I've had a couple of "Belgian Made" cars in the past, (Opels rebadged as Vauxhall and Right-Hand Drive, of course), and they have been very good cars from a build viewpoint. My Skoda was built in Czech Republic but using lots of VW bits ex-Germany and elsewhere. Rolls Royce Phantom, the quintessential ... Read More
"Do not forget that several BMWs are 'assembled' in USA... but only sold outside USA. (go figure)" News to me; as far as I know, pretty much every model built in South Carolina is also sold here in the States.
It is not simple as saying "Made in XXXX". In today's world economy, it is way to simplistic to suggest that an automoble is "MADE" in any single country. If you READ the window-sticker, you will see that the engine is "assembled" in one country, the Xmission - another country... and the entire assembly - yet another country. Do not forget that several BMWs are 'assembled' in USA... but only sold ... Read More

The Golf 2.5 is low volume compared to the Jetta. also it is outnumbered 3 to 1 in the dealers lot by the TDI. Anyway I paid $100 over invoice, and I really got paid exactly what I wanted for my old 1996 Mercedes C220 trade. I could not get the 1.9% @ 60 months, but I got the 2.9% at 60 months, that is about $500 more in payments over ... Read More
When does the next-generation Polo come out, and will it come to the United States? It was at the Geneva auto show in March. We haven't decided whether to bring this vehicle into the United States. We have introduced the hatchback in Europe. We believe -- and dealers have confirmed this -- that the vehicle is too small for the American consumer. We have alternatives, and these could be a Polo ... Read More
