    It's official. Got a deal done on a 2014 Golf TDI that kept my monthly payment almost exactly the same as the WRX. There was a bit of drama though.

    I initially was hoping that they could find me a 2013 model, for a couple reasons. One, they could get me a cheaper price; more manufacturer incentives to get rid of the '13s. But also, between '13 and '14 VW changed their complimentary maintenance plan from 3 years/36k miles to 2 years/24k miles. They took the WRX that day, giving me an appropriate trade-in value (as opposed to the Honda dealership) and said that on Monday they would call the dealerships that still had '13s. They were a bit of a ways away, Maryland and Pittsburgh, but they were confident they could get a trade worked out and have a car for me by Wednesday.

    Monday rolls around, then rolls past, and they weren't hearing back from the dealerships they were calling. So on Tuesday, after consulting with the budget department, I told them to open it up to '14s. It would be a bit more per month, according the them, but I'd still be saving lots on fuel costs and the budget committee said she would rather I get a new car than buy used.

    So my intention, which was stated, was that they could now trade with a Philly area dealership for a '14, as I knew there were a bunch out there. However, Colonial had one scheduled to come in already for the end of the month. It makes more financial sense for them to be able to sell that car as soon as it hit their lot, than trade for another and sell me that. So I kinda think they didn't even try to trade.

    My only trepidation with that situation was that we were going up to Maine this weekend. It ended up being fine, they told me just to take the loaner they had given me, a Tiguan. That worked out well, it's a bit bigger, plus an automatic so someone else was able to do some of the driving.

    Alright, that's enough blabbing for now, I'm not really going to give any thoughts on the TDI yet, as I've only driven it home from the dealership and then in to work today. I will say that at the end of my commute this morning, the on board computer was reading over 40 mpg average, so in that respect my hopes for this car would appear to be vindicated.

    Here's my official description from a convo with a friend:

    Drove to Maine. Almost hit a bear. Did Maine things: Hung out in front of a fire. Drank beer. Walked in the woods. Drank beer. Pulled docks out of the lake. Drank beer. Had a picnic lakeside...with beer. Had an epic dinner. Had moar beer. Woke up feeling like ****. Drank anti-nausea medicine. Got in the car to come home, made it 30 minutes, puked anti-nausea medicine up roadside. Continued home. Sushi for dinner at 10 pm.
