Bingo! The lower price and financing incentives caught our eye on the 2010 model in the color Claire wanted. We were actually coming back from the Mini dealer where we were looking at buying the new 4 wheel drive, 4 door Countryman. She was not happy at the cost of that machine and suggested we stop in at the VW dealer since she had always admired the looks of the Jetta wagon. Never having considered a diesel, the sales person suggested a test drive and we were blown away by the perfomance and the fuel economy. The next thing we knew we were giving them a deposit.
