2013 model still on the lot? It has to have some kind of baggage. Maybe the detail guy talked the sales manager into letting him ring it out since it's basically a relic.

Trade in of 23k probably means 20-21k actual trade in. unless that 23k trade jtbazz provided is not KBB.
99.9% of the time i would agree a 2013 still sitting on a lot would be something to worry about though after dealing with this dealership odds are they couldn't sell it. Macon is the hood you don't see many VW's cant really fit 32" wheels on them. I tried to order a new MK7 and wanted to pay cash and this dealership was to lazy to order the car.

They're offering $7k off now and a fantastic price on my trade. I think I'm gonna pull the trigger on it. Thanks for all the replies.

a 2013 sitting on the lot at what sticker prize it had isn't abnormal

No one goes to a VW dealership ready to throw down $32k for a Driver's Edition GTI when they can get a base model GTI for $25k (mark 6), so it is no surprise that they have some leftover cars.

Mine was same situation. I got it for $25k, it was $32k tag.

Well, I guess I won't be joining the GTI club after all. Wound up getting a 15 Mazda 6. Paid less for it than the GTI. Wife liked it better. I could've gone either way. The 6 does everything well, gets 38mpg on regular fuel and should cost a lot less to maintain. I've had 3 Mazdas previously and had very few issues. Thanks again for the replies.

i picked up a 2013 Autobahn for $21k with 20,000 miles so i'd say your deal is pretty good (mine is not cpo). Regardless, congrats on the mazda!

I actually really like the Mazda 6. Feel free to stick around the forum though! Congrats

Well if the Mrs. likes it, then she likes it. But I will tell you that you made a massive mistake. The 6 is a beautiful design, and being a Mazda, actually drives pretty well.

But the GTI would have grown on you in a way that the Mazda will not. Both cars are FWD, 4 cylinder. But the GTI does it in a way that even God may find Himself smiling at it sometimes.

I'm actually pondering trading the ST for the GTI. The GTIs just seem to be more problematic and more expensive to maintain (water pumps, intake, carbon, etc.). I've had 1 major issue with the ST (clutch went out @7500 miles) but it was handled under warranty. I've put on 15K miles since with no issues.

Keep the ST.
It's too similar to the GTI to lose money on.

Now an R would be worth ditching the ST.
