Good Deals on 2010 Volkswagen Golf
VW used to mean economy. "Think Small" they touted.
But nowadays, it's more like "Think Bigger" as in bigger sticker price, bigger maintenance costs, and bigger gas bill. So Volkswagen is taking steps to change all that, with a slew of attractive deals.
Now through June 30, you can take advantage of 0% financing for up to 60 months on a new Golf. Or get $1,000 back through available dealer cash. Lease customers can grab lease rates as low as 1%, with $0 security deposit and $500 in lease bonus cash.
For recent college grads, there's an additional $500 in dealer cash (finance or lease.) Unfortunately, none of these deals are for the desirable TDI models.
Though it's not the most economical car out there, the VW Golf does get by on a budget, while offering a level of refinement that's a clear step above the econo-box competition. So maybe their slogan should be, "Think Medium."
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
