It's going to be tough. My VW is down and first thought was find a TDI. After seeing the prices I have it with a guy to get the water pump, oil pan gasket, and timing belt done. I couldn't believe the prices of the TDI's. They are only going to go up with fuel prices. I thought about selling mine and using the money towards one, however I would still need to borough. Chris

I'm a little more country than that...

Try the ads on TDIclub.com but good luck because those guys know what they are worth when fuel goes up like it has.

This is a very bad time (price-wise) to look for TDI though it will only be worse when fuel hits $4 or $4.50 per gallon.

I had mine for sale when Katrina hit for what I paid for it and actually took it off the market. The phone rang off the hook and my gut said summer/fall of 06 would be the same.

I was wrong. Summer 06 looks to be worse for fuel prices.

Is it in the Want Ad's? I saw a Black TDI in there and wanted to call, but didn't have the money. I would say look at it and see if you like it. If you feel good try haggling him down a bit. The only thing is if he knows his stuff and the law of demand he might not budge. I would try to get at least under 6k. Don't forget to look into the timing belt. Let me know, I'll ride down with ya.
