The lady wanted to get a car, and we had been looking at Subarus, but decided to look at TDI's, mainly because we knew there would be some crazy deals out there with the emissions scandal and all.
It's got 133k on it, it's a 6 speed auto (with Tiptronic, this thing shifts a LOT faster than my Golf), tan leather interior (w/ black dash topper), 6 disc changer, 30-pin iPod dock, is in pretty beautiful shape inside and out, and the only issue I could find was a leaking sunroof drain, which I should be able to fix. We used that and the fact we didn't know for sure if the timing belt had been done to get them to knock $900 off it, bringing it to $7000+TT&L.
I paid $6000 for my 04 Golf in 2012 with 185k miles, so this was a massively better deal. KBB says these should be about $10.8k, and there were several to choose from in my area at this type of price.
I'm not even worried about the emissions scandal, if the fix gives it less power it'll still be faster than my Golf
