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.
Platinum Gray with Moonrock interior
Monster mat kit
Price paid (including freight but not tax and dmv fees)
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.
TDI SEL Premium
FAC INVOICE 32,131
PRICE PAID $32,158 + 595 lovely Florida dealer Fee
dealer worked hard to play games to try to get full msrp out of me since there are very few of these left(with decent colors) anywhere around south Florida
2) AT DSG
5) platinum gray/black, purchased 10/7, also got 1.9% financing and a good number for my CC trade-in (same as carmax offer)
6) $27,707 - invoice; MSRP 28,900
2012 Passat TDI SE
(2010 Reflex Silver DSG CC Sport - traded in for Passat)
2004 BMW X3
4) Mat Kit
5) Had a F&F certificate from VWGoA for invoice, but dealer wouldn't honor it until all previous orders were filled. Instead I picked up someone's canceled order for $750 off sticker rather than wait 90 days. Will be adding a lip spoiler.
2012 VW Passat TDI SEL | Black/Black | Current
2004 Audi A6 Avant | Dolphin Gray/Gray | Gone
1999 Audi A4 1.8T | Melange Gold/Black | Long Gone
1972 VW Beetle | White/Black | Really Long Gone
I had a Night Blue/Black TDI SEL on order from a local dealer at invoice, which was $32,100 I believe. That car is still in la la land with a delivery expected who knows when, so I purchased yesterday from another local dealer a Platinum Gray/Black TDI SEL with the Protection Kit (monster mats, trunk liner, lip spoiler) and First Aid Kit that they had just gotten in and was not presold. Sticker was $33,599. They split the difference between MSRP and Invoice with me, so $32,849 was what I paid. I figured I would save enough money in gas compared to my V8 S4 to cover most of the $750 difference by not waiting to buy at invoice at who knows what month next year. I'm happy and they gave me a huge discount on the 7 yr 100k platinum warranty too, so no worries for a long time for me!
Forgot my old login so created a new one. My last VW was a 02 Jetta 1.8T. I got a quote for a Tungsten Silver Metallic.
2) AT DSG
3) Highline (Canadian SEL, minus seat memory )
4) sport package and NAV
5) Tungsten Silver Metallic, dealer demo with 5k kms
6) MSRP is 37350, dealer knocked off about 1900$ being a demo
On a lease it came to 620$ tax in 0$ down no security deposit for 36 months. Usually 682$ a month. Can't find one with sports pack let alone both nav and sports. Not too crazy about the color. Would have preferred red or blue. One thing I noticed it had 18" bridgestones! What do you guys think?
The waiting is the hardest part. We are told not to expect our new baby before February.
Just ordered the following from the factory via my local dealer:
2) AT DSG
4) Mats/Trunk Liner/CarGo Blocks, First Aid kit
5) Cash, no trade-in
We are returning to the VW family. Wife traded in her beloved 1999 Passat for a minivan when our first child arrived in 2004.
In retrospect, the ordering process was a little surreal. Dear wife test drove the car and decided what options she wanted. I took over and contacted 10+ dealers via email and asked for a quote for a factory order. Of those that responded, I had the lowest email me the buyers agreement, which I signed and emailed back. Coincidentally, this happened to be the closest and most convenient dealer to us. I then called in with a credit card number for the deposit.

TherVW in Fall River MA is where i got it. This was the LAST Passat TDi that they had (and still haven't gotten any more). It was being advertised at $25,995. I didn't have to talk them down any. This price did not include my trade as I was not going to part with my Jetta. I was given $2500 for the jetta, therefore I paid $23,400.
