VW Diesel Prices Still Falling

As Volkswagen continues to deal with the fallout from "Diesel Gate," prices on its used diesel vehicles continues to decline. If you've been thinking about adding a Volkswagen diesel to your garage, now might be a good time to act.

Cars.com has details on the current deals which include 2009-2015 Volkswagen Jetta TDIs. These vehicles have seen an 8 percent dip in average price in the past 2 months. See below for the full list.

Note that there is a risk prices could fall even further, so keep that in mind. I will keep you updated on the VW price fluctuations over the coming months.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
