That's right! Ha ha I did find one that had a bad tranny, but he was still asking 6k for it with 150k. I know that's not a lot for a diesel but 6k plus another grand for a transmission rebuild was a little high for what we were looking for

We were looking at those too, I like em. We were looking at BMW 325i's, VW jettas and golfs 1.8t and vr6's, Volvos with a turbo wagon or sedan, and saabs with the 2.0 turbo. All in a stick shift.

We are really liken the jetta gli though, vr6 with a 6spd. It's a nice mixture of economical, luxarious, and sporty. Been driving it for a little over a week straight and I'm saving half of my old gas bill, between 200 and 250 extra bucks a month.
