I Love This Car..Nice …

My time in Wisconsin flew by and I never felt like I was on vacation, don’t you hate that? I had a wonderful Christmas and New Years thanks to quite a bit of skype time with my husband. Unfortunately I am home sick from work for a second day with what might be the flu but now I have time to share about my new car!
My sister and I got into town on the 23rd and on the 24th, yes Christmas Eve, my dad and I headed out to start car shopping. I test drove a used and new 2012 Jetta that day but the prices weren’t right and the car just didn’t “feel right” to me. We headed back out to another car dealer the day after Christmas and I test drove a used 2011 Jetta that I really liked. It had both the heated seats and the sunroof that I really wanted but it was white gold. I wasn’t quite thrilled with the color but if I could get a good price on it I was willing to compromise on the color. The salesgirl was very nice but answered our questions way too quickly and incorrectly said the carfax showed no accidents. When she went to see what kind of deal she could get me my dad picked up the carfax and saw that there actually was a “moderate” accident on the vehicle. Her and another sales guy ended up getting close to my asking price but I decided to walk away and head to another dealer. On the way there I told my dad that if I didn’t find anything at the next dealer I would go back and buy the white gold Jetta.
I am SO glad I decided to walk away. We got to the next dealership and right away the sales guy seemed way more knowledgable about the Volkswagen pre-certification process and about the cars in general. There were 4 Jettas that I wanted to look at and right away I eliminated the only one that had a sunroof because it was way out of my price range.
