      Just a poll out of sheer curiosity. The MKV is still recent enough to be on someone's lease contract, and old enough to have been paid off by many. So what's your situation?

      I'm 24 and work full time, I financed my 2010 TDI sedan and couldn't be happier with it. Paying more each month to get i paid off earlier

      Financed, thru a Credit Union, best rates around!
      I may not be that low, but I sure ain't slow either.

      My first cw Rabbit was bought new through VW credit, paid off.

      Bought gf 08 UG Rabbit from KIA dealer under financing for 8500$ 220/month payments. I'm currently trying to dump the white one for either a mk4/5 r32 or a mk6 gti. We got her a new car I'm taking over the Rabbit. I'm trying my hardest not to swap all my parts over to the UG and trade the CW in on a BRZ

      I financed my 2010 Jetta TDI. 23 payments down and 37 to go.

      If I could just stop modding my car I'd be able to pay it off sooner.

      I went with VW Credit, got a nice low rate on a CPO 3.9%, and have 3 years left on a 5 year loan.

      With all the money I put into it, I could have paid the entire loan off in the first year.
