It's not really designated for either, but it's a family hauler that will be shared.

OK, Family hauler, so is it in the car, van or CUV/SUV class and do not just say yes, but state which class please! :P

Almooooost. That was our first choice, but the deal I got, and the fact that this will be rather short term solution made me go this route.

Tiguan or maybe Touareg

Got it!! I award you one imaginary cookie! :AH-HA:

 

Now, you wanna try for the specific model?

Hmm..SE?    I had a Passat as a rental for 3 weeks last year at this time...when I was back here closing on my house and doing initial remodeling before I moved back in June.   Nice car..very comfortable, good outward visibility, huge trunk..

Thanks. Not quite what I had planned, but 7 grand off AND 0% for 72 mths was kinda hard to say no to. Going to use this as an opportunity to get some debt eliminated and cut costs.

My GTI lease will be up in 1 yr, and I'm going to turn it in to VW. Once I do that, I'm going to focus on improving my 4Runner with new suspension, brakes, wheels/tires, etc. I want to bring it up to good enough shape I have no hesitation in taking it across the country. Or, depending on some other factors, I might trade it in to get back in a newer 4Runner. A TRD Pro or maybe the right Land Cruiser could definitely be a possibility.

Past VW owners : how has your experience been with reliability/mechanical issues?
Friend of mine has an '08 Passat. He takes meticulous care of it, only has 45K miles on it & he's thinking of selling it. My younger son is going to need a car over the summer, he's about 100 miles away from me at school. All I've heard is VWs are trouble-prone.
