    Need to find a good private mechanic in the Naperville area for my sister-in-law's 2002 passat just off warranty. Need to find someone that know's VW's, and CANNOT BE A DEALER. Thanks

    Hi guys :) , A couple of days ago I received the following letter from my dealership: Special Test Market Pricing & Financing Event. Your status as (name of my VW dealership) customer qualifies you for this private sale. We need to acquire several pre-owned 2001 VW Passats by the close of...

    Where do you all recommend I look to finance a car bought in a private sale. With interest rates going up perhaps just going to my local back is not the best idea. What are your thoughts or recommendations? TIA, Tom

    Hope this is the appropriate way to ask this. Several responses to another post in the newbie section say (in various ways) to look for a good private VW mechanic instead of using the dealership. Just wondering what you all consider criteria one should consider in determining if the mechanic...

    So I've been bringing my 2001 Passat to the dealer since I bought it, for everything. They've done the scheduled maintenance, all repairs, and detailing. I'm starting to wonder though, if I should start bringing it to the mechanic who works on my 92 Jetta. Three of the best mechanics just...

    I have a buddy who is soon to move to Dallas from Florida (work-related) and he asked me if Texas requires payment of sales tax on used car sales between private parties. He said in Florida they require this to be paid when the vehicle is registered and was wondering if the same was true in...

    I'm thinking about selling my Passat. Right now I don't have a real reason to keep it. I have great access to public transit and to my girlfriends auto. And I'd really like to save money. Anyways, I have a loan on my '00 Passat through VW. Probably owe about $7000 on it right now. I...

    Yes... the inevitable will happen, most likely sometime this winter. What I'd like to know is what is better, trading or selling? If I were to buy a new car right now, the trade in of my car is ~$13,000. The private retail value is ~$15,500. Is the extra $2500 worth the hassle of advertising...

    Why the discrepancy? Edmunds vs. Kelly Blue Book -- Private Sale or Trade? Okay, as you know... I'll be moving on to a new car sometime within the next year or so. So, I've gone and been doing my research as to what my Passat is worth. Of course, you'll usually get more if you sell it yourself...
