Not sure what to do but the price of gas is groce, tried a 04 jetta TDI and was actually impressed, but the real question is can I trade the blue oval for a VW?? the jetta gets average 60 mpg and a high as 68 truck 18-23 what do I do??? not sure what the reliabillity of VW are but Ill have to take a long hard look.
Sure you can. If you dont' need to haul crap around you shouldn't have a truck anyway
I have a 96 Passat GLSSC that gets about 18 around town which is better than the 13 I get in the truck. Downside: my $20k truck gets used only once or twice a week.
keep them both the truck for hualing things and the vw for gas milage, I have my truck that gets around 17 and I need it for hauling things and I use a 93 tyota paseo for back and fourth to work it gets about 40 mpg.
I Was Going To Get A Tdi Until I Was Warned About The High Cost Of Maintanence. Everything Is Expensive And Labor Intensive!!
Yup I checked into that as well and it scared me off. I cant believe the maint on those things plus all the extreem expence, dont think the great gass milage equalls out to the unbelievable maint on those, might look at a mazda3 for a second car now.
I have a 1980 Golf VW and the odometer stop two years ago at 200k and we have had very little problems with it. I would say less problems then my F150 will less km and newer. But I do need the truck for hauling, but otherwise I drive the VW and Ihave been able to fix it so far. Good luck on your choice.
