Anyway, the part I need advice on. I just came out of the VW dealer after looking at used cars. He said I wouldn't be able to find a manual transmission Rabbit very easily, so of course, he tries to upsell me. But in the end, I was fairly convinced. With all of the promotions and blah blah blah, I can walk away with a 2014 Jetta, 0% interest for 72 months, at about $17k. That comes to about $264 a month for 6 years.
So, I have a few questions:
- What do you think about the 2014 Jetta, and VW in general?
- Do I buy his story that new cars are that much better than used ones? (Warranty, reliability, etc.)
- For a recent college grad with a steady job, is buying a new car a good decision?
