You need to go and test drive the TDI yourself as others like I might like it but you might hate it.
My 05 Touareg V8, 18 inch wheels is a wonderful car and only 55K miles. However, age has gotten to things - needs new front rotors and pads, new tie rods, one of 4 catalytic convertors need replacement and new summer tires - about $4,000 of repairs. And who knows when the other convertors will go.
Trade in is only about $15,000.
Trade on a TDI or fix it up?
Anyone drive one of the new TDI's? It has 405 ft-lbs of torque but only 200 ponys.
Thanks for your opinions - it's always a tough decision.
Maybe he owns it in some other country.
