      2015 - only avail in the S trim level, all the others have the 1.8T.

      Interesting few days of car shopping.

      2013 Mazda 3i Sport - Sedan. This one in particular was not in serious contention but it was there so, worth a drive. Overall not a bad car, engine has a...

      That is a nice light weight on that trim line. Sadly the 4dr S only comes with the 6AT Tiptronic, so it hits crub weight of 3023 lbs, the S w/Sunroof 5MT @ 2963 lbs. Boo!

      See, you're one of those people.

      :)

      But honestly the rental 2014 Altima 2.5 I was able to be a soft foot and get a steady 41mpg commuting... so the 1.8T getting those numbers is less of a WOW...

      True on the bits, but coming from an '07 I'm totally used to it. It does make for easy dash removal for hard wiring in phone(Waze) power etc... but I would like to get back to some serious dash...

      I plan to test drive both transmissions on both engines, the TDI and the 1.8T, since they are all 4 such different beasts. 5MT gas, 6AT Tiptronic gas, 6MT TDI, 6AT DSG TDI, bleh....

      Trying to...

      The options VW offers on the Golf right now are just ... irritating me.

      2015 4dr S, SE, SEL - 6AT
      2015 4dr S w/Sunroof - 5MT or 6AT

      So there's no 4dr Launch Edition, which is sad. Ah well,...

      whut

      Really? Damn. Makes me wonder though if the TDI would reflect similar high numbers.

      87 octane or...?

      Same with WV, no emissions test, so less of a concern there.

      Just need to weigh out if a TDI is actually more beneficial than the 1.8T for *my* setup. Figure about 20k miles a year, driving 2...

      I think the underwater portion is more regarding having negative equity that has to be moved into the next vehicle when trading it in, or being forced to pay for that out of pocket.

      I could of...

      My credit union will go to 96m fixed at 3%, not even New cars only, this is on used (any year) as well... it's madness I tell you.

      Keep in mind too that the weight of the kid may not rocket up that soon. My lil girl is just over 2 years old and is a string bean, tall and thin. So we have quite a while before nearing the LATCH...

      No, not a significant difference...this will be a DD, not a track toy. Just one of those things, have to investigate every difference if I look at one vs another in the same model line. :laugh:

      Interesting difference I did not notice... The TDI added a small Urea tank which caused the following:

      1.8T Rear Suspension: Multilink with coil springs, telescopic dampers, 19-mm anti-roll bar...

      Wow, thank you for throwing this out there. I've had no issues with our 2.5, seems like it would be a stand up engine if we planned to keep it. That is enough wary info about the 2.0 to make those...

      I would like to discuss this a bit further, feel free to just hit me up on PM or something, but since the wife and I are shopping for what is boiling down to a new TDI 4dr or 1.8T 4dr (just can't...

      I agree that resale isn't a tremendous portion of the consideration, but it was very interesting how the market moved with our 05 xB, seeing the Gen 2 turn it into a more sought after item, it held a...
