- A very nice package.
- Bought a 2010 Prius first, and lost a bundle on the trade-in value after the recalls.
Purchased As New
I had a 2003 MB E320 for nine months, and liked it a lot, but the warrantee ran out, and I was afraid of some expensive repair bills, so I bought a 2010 Prius, for the gas milage, and never having had a Toyota before. I liked the Prius, but after awhile, it became boring to drive, and it had a tinny feeling to it, hollow, and the plastics gave it a cheap feel inside. Also, I didn't get the advertised gas milage in the winter when I bought it, which they said was due to the gas engine running the heater, but, with the recall that then happened, I was a little disappointed with Toyota. My brother has had a Passat for ten years, which he always talks about liking, and he mentioned he was going to look at the new Golf diesel, so, remenecsing about my first new car, and 1973 VW Super Beetle, which I liked, I drove a Golf. I was surprised, because I liked it more than I thought I would. More than that, I actually bought one, and I like it a lot. It has a more solid feel than the Prius, and the first three years maintenance are included in the price. But besides that, it feels well-thought out, not just made to be inexpensive. It's satisfying to drive, like the MB, but has a new car warrantee, and its suspension, and engine have fahrvegnugen. Actually, the whole car does. I took a beating on the trade in on the Prius. I paid $24,340, and got only $19, 210 for it three months later, with 4,000 miles on it. It'd had the brake update done, as well as the initial service, and there was nothing wrong with the car. I paid $19,250 for the Golf, with Bluetooth, heated seats, and washer nozzles, and heavy-duty rubber mats. It's a two-door with AT. If I'd have known how nicely the engine runs, I may have opted for the five-speed, in retrospect, and saved $1,100. Put that on top of the loss I took on the Prius, and it could have been quite nice, financially. I could have afforded the diesel, and still saved money. The diesel has nice extras on it, and gets 30-42mpg. You have to pay a bit more for diesel, though, and not everybody has it. My MB took premium, but I didn't mind, because of how well it ran. The engine on that thing was like a jewel.
