Well the time has come for me to trade in the Trailblazer, just got a new house and very far from work and the 30 min drive combined with my 12/15 mpg just was not cutting it any more. So I picked this up

2013 GTI should get me around 30/35 mpg if I behave

Had a pymt, it stayed the same, its just for a bit longer now. Insurance went up by 10 bucks. So instead of spending around $200 a month in gas I'll be well under 100. Also have all maintence/service covered for the next 80k miles

The plaid is one of the things that helped sell me on the car, I love it, picked that over one with leather

GtI's are fun!

May get worse mpgs than you think because of the fun factor. I like the seats, in a vw. Can u get the plaud with seat heaters? I wanted a gti, wife wanted a mazda3. Since its her car she won.


Anyone remember the VW commercial with the stinky free chair in the golf?!:rotfl:

nice!
I like mine for long drives over a few days. And cold winters. And practical jokes. Turn it on before picking up a buddy. Esp in summer when a/c is on!

nice car. you did not go for the TDI did you?

I have an 09 TDI jetta wagon I put 100k miles on so far. probably saved me close to $10,000 in fuel over the TB.

if you plan to keep it for a while you may be interested in

I don't think you can get a GTI TDI. Golf yes, but not GTI I think.

No TDI GTI or GTD as they call it in other country's. If they did I would have gotten it. Really thinking about the vcds, the nice thing is is reasonibly priced, unlike a tech 2

VW doesn't offer the GTI in TDI because it would be s l o w e r than the 2.0t it has. Can't have both in the states unfortunately

Nice GTI. :thumbsup: I had a 1983 Rabbit GTI. My how things have changed.


What I don't understand is why people feel like they have to say goodbye when they trade for something different. :confused: Sure, you probably won't spend as much time on this site. But it will always be here to stop in and say hello. :grouphug:

Not to hijack or anything, but thanks BO TIE. I am getting a 2009 Forester at the end of the month and I have been bittersweet about about it. I will miss the 360 but its going to my lil sis who really does need an affordable SUV right now so at least it stays in the fam.

Its just the way it works sometimes. Every car I've had ive been active on those specific forums, but once you move on, you move on to that new forum, learning/reading/searching, Its hard to find time to go back. If I still posted on every forum I was once active on, I would never be able ot leave the house. Sure I go back and check occasionaly but once the cars gone, the main "reason" to be there is gone

Which is why I said "stop in and say hello". :biggrin:

I guess Congrats. If the TB hasn't sold, go and put a BUNCH of GMTNation stickers and notes on it. That way we have someone else to take your place and torture. :biggrin:
