Yes, an extended warranty, at least for VW, is available till the original warranty hasn't run out.

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?
Even if you consider 30% depreciation, the owner must have paid something around 23-24L for his Jetta, not 20L.
(0.7) * 23L = 16.1L

In the end, it all comes down to how badly and quickly you want it.
If you're willing to take the risk, you can stick to your figure 15-15.5L. If you're lucky, you might get the deal you want in the future or ever better however there is a possibility that you might never get the deal you want. In that case, there shouldn't be any regret. If you want to play safe (and save some time), shell out 1-2L extra and secure the car.

I had the very same criteria when I was looking for pre-owned Jetta and trust me, there were not many pre-owned highline DSGs which are still under warranty in the market, at least here in Ahmedabad. I was able to find out only 2 (including the one I purchased) during my search of 4 months.

Happy shopping!

Questions:
- Is depreciation calculated on the on-road price or ex-showroom price?
- Is there any implication of the TCS (tax collected at source) @1% in these calculations?

I was wondering why the March 2017 sales figure show the sale of a single Jetta. Your post explains it

I had been following the Jetta and have been a fan of the beauty for a very long time, more than anything else didn't want to let go of my dream to own, so took the plunge, she is a real beauty.

Perfect timing on that one. We were able to get 1.7 Lakhs off in November 2014 when a facelift was due, so I can only imagine what kind of discounts are going on now. Congrats on the new ride. You will grow up to love the old school charm of the Jetta eventually.

Would you mind sharing the price or PM me once you have the PM feature available?

Thanks Vishy
I have been in love with the Jetta since 2014
Things just didn't fall in place and I had purchased the VW Vento in September 2013, it didn't make sense to change so soon too.
But this time around couldn't resist the charm of the Jetta
The vento is a great car,
But the Jetta is too good

Congrats! She looks brilliant in this blue shade. There was a blue TDI DSG available in one of the Mumbai dealerships but they weren't giving a decent discount, so I had to let that go. Was the last Jetta AT in Mumbai.

I also came very close to picking up a pristine white Jetta TDI DSG, done only 13k kms. Car was less than a year old on road, but was a 2015 model by manufacturing date. With the depreciation factor, the car was valued around 15L in Mumbai. I had offered a lac more as premium for a car in great shape + under warranty. But alas, someone gave that lucky bugger 18L for his car. Was seriously depressed. Haven't seen anything worth it since.

A dealer in Hyderabad has two new Jetta Comfortlines manufactured January and February 2016.

Would it be a wise idea to buy one?

How much should the discount be for one?

Check the odo reading and do a PDI to make sure they are not test drive cars. Apart from this there should be no concerns at all.

We were able to get 1.7 Lakhs off when the 2015 facelift was due in January. Our car was bought in December. You can definitely expect higher discounts if you bargain harder.

Regards,
vishy

They have another test drive car run 11k that is also on sale.

These two cars are at the stockyard still in protective covers.

I was hoping for 4-5L discount The cars were manufactured nearly 1.5 years ago and the model is discontinued....

If it's a test drive car, you can definitely expect higher discounts. Just gave you my example here. . Just that TD cars are a risky proposition and how they have been treated is unknown.

My jetta was 9 months old when we picked it up.

Yes, you can knock off 3.5-5 Lakhs depending on the age and mileage of the car. I would advise you go for the 1.5 year old stock rather than the TD car.

Hyderabad VW dealer is offering a January or February 2016 manufactured Jetta Comfortline Diesel Manual for 19.5L on road.

Original price was 21.7L.

2.2L discount seems to low for a discontinued more than year old car. Any ideas what a reasonable price should be?
