Hi Bharath,

Can you please tell me the Ex showroom price in the quote for 23.5 Lakhs on road.
It would be great if you can share the quote itself.

Please !!!!!!

Default R.I.P. Volkswagen Jetta : Production Stopped

What kind of dealer discount can be expected on a Jetta that's manufactured in 2015? This is over and above any end of life discounts I am assuming.

When I enquired, the dealer quoted me straight 3 lacs on a 2015 TD car which had 4600kms on the ODO and it was diesel highline DSG.

I would be wary of test drive cars. Prima facie they may seem like good deals but these cars are really thrashed around by dealer and customers alike. Wouldn't pick one up, especially a VW.
What about a new 2015 MY tdi dsg? What kind of discounts might one expect on that?

Sorry for the delayed response but will try and catch up with the Sales person for the quote. I suspect this price includes the loyalty and exchange bonus because he sold me my polo.

In a way It makes sense for VW to launch Jetta only in LHD as majority of its sales of Jetta comes from US and China.
In Europe it was sold around 8900 while in US it sold a whopping 12100. That's a huge difference. Not sure how much of that 8900 came from UK. (Only RHD country in Europe). Sales in India aren't big either. Not sure of the figures of Jetta in Australia or South Africa.

However as they say past data is not necessarily an indication of future. Look at Skoda Octavia, since they launched the MQB version in 2013 the sales figures rose from around 165000 in 2013 to 226000 in 2016 in Europe. That is the highest ever in Octavia's history. So may be VW will introduce MQB Jetta in LHD and if they surprise themselves with the sales figures they may introduce it in RHD markets as well.

Yes you are right VW UK site acts weird at times irrespective of the country you try to access it from. But not to worry, the site is up and running and you can access that. If you were looking for news on Jetta, no I couldnt see anything on those lines.

Then again the reputation that I refer to is primarily US based where the expectations of a car are much higher.
I think VW sells Jetta in decent numbers in US, its sold 177000 in 2011 but came down to 121000 in 2016 - almost a 3rd of its total sales in US. Not so sure of the comment on reliability.

Seen this car already. The driver side running bar has a big dent and the dealer was clueless about it. Car is in good condition but for a 2012 Jetta which hardly has any feature (C+ car) asking price is way too much. Check carwale Mubai Jetta list. You will find a highline MT going for 9.5L with similar running.

What would be a fair price for a 2015 manufactured Jetta Highline AT registered in 2016? Done under 15k and in immaculate condition? Direct buy (no dealer).

If there is no catch, anything around 15.5L would be a steal deal, around 16.5L would be a good deal & around 17L would be a fair deal. You should stretch it upto 17.75-18.25L if you have already fallen for her.

PS: I included zero-dep insurance for a year & rto transfer fees in the calculations and assumed that the deal will take place in Mumbai. Not to mention, assumptions include clean service record & no insurance claims & current owner is the first owner. Also make sure that the owner did not purchase a TD vehicle in the first place.
The most important part, a big wide grin is guaranteed throughout the ownership if everything goes right.

Thanks for the quick response!

I was speaking to a dealer that I know and he says the thumb rule is 20% depreciation per year and another 10% for owner change. So that brings it to around 14. Even if I were to pay a lakh for the good condition and peace of mind, would still be around 15. There is an immediate ~50k expense - that of buying extended warranty for two years. So I'm hesitant to pay anything over 15-15.5 because I know this car will depreciate like crazy since it's a discontinued model. Any inputs?

Maybe, I missed out, but I am guessing its a diesel? In which case you might want to pay some premium?

Yes it's a diesel (there's no AT Highline petrol). The petrol variants would cost even lesser given their lower initial selling price.

I just bought a 2014 TDI DSG 34000 kms for 14.5 with zero dep insurance till Sept and service due in 13000 kms but no warranty. I may have paid a premium since there weren't many 2013 and later low mileage DSGs in the used market. Moreover, I fell in love with this car, the moment I laid my eyes on it. So I closed as soon as I could.

I wanted a 2015 model too but the ones available were way too expensive - starting at 17.5 IIRC. So I agree with Bhavik's assessment.

I've seen a couple of good deals on 2014 TDI ATs, but I don't have the guts to buy a DSG without a warranty!
So if I do end up buying a <2 year old Jetta, I will also look to buy the two years of extended warranty. This should still be available at VW, right?
