Default Re: used merc v new Vw

Sean, I guess it depends on how much money you've got and how much you are willing to spend on a new car, irrespective of make or model. At $43K. you do have a lot of choices, some certainly more attractive (at least to look at) than the Passat. The big Hyundai or Kia Saloons spring to mind, and Michel gave me a ride to one of the Club meetings in a Genesis although, of course, that's somewhat more expensive.

Also lookat the 430 Coupes that Michel and Anthony have bought - great value for money, and extremely attractive from most perspectives - you just hope that nothing major rears its ugly head. Talking of well, used VW cars, I simply love the shape of the 'Highline' Passat, and many cheaply priced at about the $15K. mark. What a glorious looking car. I just wonder how much grieve one may have to experience from a servicing point of view. Regards. Styria
