    Thread: How much did you pay for your Passat?

    1. 10-02-2011 07:10 PM #1
      I am in the process on closing on a 2012 Passat, as well as I sure as other onlookers of this forum.

      I thought it would be helpful to post this info for others to compare when shopping.

      How about this format -

      1) Engine (2.5, TDI, VR6)
      2) Transmission (MT, AT, AT DSG)
      3) Trimline (S, SE, SEL)
      4) Options (spoiler, protection, navigation, sunroof, mats)
      5) Comments
      6) Price excluding tax, title, tags

      Post a photo of your beauty if you have one.

      Great idea. I haven't purchased one but I have gotten pricing from a local dealership with what the lowest they would sell me, so I'll contribute.


      1) TDI
      2) AT DSG
      3) SE
      4) w/ sunroof and monster mats
      5) Negotiated price of new car but couldn't agree on trade in value.
      6) $27,950

      Have not purchased yet, but I am considering to VR6 models, these are the best prices I have been able to work out so far. Can someone looking to buy or who has bought the VR6 tell me what they've got?

      #1

      2) DSG
      3) SE
      4) Sunroof & Fender
      5) Not sure if I go this route or all in for the SEL?
      6) $28,861

      #2
      1) VR6
      2) DSG
      3) SEL
      4) Loaded no mats ($375 spoiler maybe)
      5) Not sure if I go this route or with the SE, which is all I wanted heading in.
      6) $32,694

    6. 10-02-2011 09:37 PM #6
      Have not purchased yet either but best deal I've been able to negotiate so far (they say they can get me my exact color combo also, Grey/Grey in 2 weeks)...

      1) TDI
      2) DSG
      3) SEL
      4) Spoiler, Mat/Trunk Kit
      5) Offered 2.9%/60months. However they were not willing to deal on the trade and I am not in a rush so am going to hold off until the financing gets event better on the TDI or they are willing to deal on the TDIs more.
      6) $32,000

      2012 Passat TDI SE no Nav
      10-06-2011 01:05 PM #10
      1) TDI
      2) AT DSG
      3) SE (no nav)
      4) spoiler, monster mats (incl trunk kit)
      5) available on lot
      6) $28,911 (= $353 less than MSRP+delivery)

      I only took it because of the 1.9% for 60 months currently available for TDI; that saves at least $1300 in interest.

      edit: also, they took off the Hankooks and gave me the ContiPros from another Passat.

      Greg,

      Was that Costco cost including the Destination charge or before destination charge? I went through CostCo as well and got straight invoice, but that was before CostCo even had the Passat listed yet. If your cost includes the destination, that's a little over $300 cheaper than I was quoted. I may have to check back with CostCo or with my dealership. I'm still waiting on my car to be delivered.

    13. 10-06-2011 11:47 PM #13
      NO love for the 5 banger?

      everyone here seems to be listing TDIs. What are you all paying for the 2.5 SE or SEL?

    14. 10-19-2011 11:52 AM #14
      1. TDI
      2. DSG
      3. SEL Premium
      4. Mat kit, Med Tint

      he got that price because they are going to make it up on the back end from the trade, the dealer gets a hold back from vw for selling under invoice, then the dealer wholesales the jetta, or sells on their lot and makes alot more$$$$$, i used to work at a vw dealership

      Hi Tibbs,

      Congrats on the excellent deal on the new TDI. I'm looking for a 2012 TDI Passat as well, except I am looking for the manual transmission SE. MSRP is $25,995 (not including the $770 destination charge) and I have a quote for $1000 below MSRP from a local Chicago area dealer. It seems to me that you were able to get yours for $3000 below MSRP. What dealer did you get yours from and how were you able to accomplish this unbelievable deal? I'll come pick up my car from elsewhere for such a good price.

      So, I should take my VR4 to my local VW dealer for a trade. Somehow, I don't think I'm going to get a good price.

      Sincerely,
      -Mike-

      hi, names danny, i wouldnt trade that vr4 for in they are going to bring you to the bank, if i were you i would sell it thru a mitsubishi forum of some sort, that is a very rare car and possible the best sports car mitsubishi ever built, on another note the new passat tdi 6speed manual trans invoices for about 24,979, hamilton vw in nj will sell you that car under invoice just an fyi, Tibbs got that price because of his trade in, they made the deal on the passat look sweet and then gave him wholesale on his car. The best way to get a deal on a passat is to order yours now as the manual is not going to be mass produced, this shouls buy you about a month if not more to sell ur vr4, then take that money and put it down, good luck

      Thanks Danny and Greg for your comments. I will take my VR4 to Sue for a quote on the trade in, although I'm afraid nobody gives good prices on trade ins, which leaves me with trying to sell it. I have it listed on autotrader and craigslist. Am trying to list it on 3si.org as well.

      I want to sell my VR4 first, and then will get by with one car temporarily until I find my black ext/beige interior Passat TDI SE manual transmission. In today's crappy economy, I do not want to take any unnecessary risks. I have to find just the right buyer that will appreciate my car for a successful sale to happen.

      1. 2.5L
      2. AT
      3. SEL Premium
      4. Nav, sunroof
      5. Silver on Black, trade-in a 03 BMW Z4 and a much more gentler ride
      6. $31905

    33. 11-01-2011 10:22 PM #33
      Just purchased my 2.5L last week. Went though multiple dealers for quotes and also priced through Truecar.com. Truecar was VERY good on pricing out the Altima, Sonata and Optima but not so great on the Passat as direct dealer quotes were a couple hundred less. Had my locale dealer beat the best price to get the sale plus they went an extra $500 on my trade.

      2.5L SE
      Automatic
      Platinum Gray with Moonrock interior
      Monster mat kit
      Price paid (including freight but not tax and dmv fees)
      $23,788

      Don't have too many miles so far but overall happy at this point. I picked the Passat over a very loaded 29k Altima that I had priced down to about the same price. I chose the Passat because it feels more upscale and better put together. Plus the ride is much nicer. Pretty much the same thing with the Sonata and Optima. All three are nice cars but I felt like I would get tired of the styling and the ride in pretty short order. I can see myself in the VW for years to come.
