I've been reading any tidbit of info I can. I'm looking for my first VW. I love the Rabbit's and we almost bought one 3 years ago for my hubby's daily driver. We decided instead to get a Mazda 6 since it suited him better.
I'm tired of my gas guzzling mini-van and want to downsize. He thinks I should get a TDI for better fuel economy but that would mean 2006 or older since the newer ones aren't in my budget. I'd rather have a Rabbit but that would mean a sacrifice in fuel mileage. I'm currently looking for a new job so no idea what my commute will be like and if it will warrant the TDI. It could be anywhere from 20 km round trip all the way up to 110 km round trip. Currently I just do short trips near home for groceries, picking up the kids, etc. Also, I want a manual.
Any help and insight would be greatly appreciated. I'm so torn as to which way to go.
