I think a scene from the movie Tommy Boy can best explain this.
Old guy: "Where's the garentee on the box, I want it on the box! Its there smiling at me, comforting me that im good and if anything happens im going to make it all better!"
Tommy: "Ya know why they put the gareentee on the box, cause they know your selling ya a gareenteed piece of crap. If ya want me to crap in a box and label it gareented, i'll do that for ya. I got alot of space time on my hands, but for your customers sake, your sake and your daughter's sake you'll by a real product from me."

New Will. I'm not totally positive if that is the rate now. Thats how it was a couple of months ago when they were trying to get rid of the huge over stock. But its worth a trip to find out.

K.I.A.= Keep It Away!! My wife and I made the mistake of buying one. Got rid of it just 4 months later. Took a major beating, too, but the best thing we did getting another VW.
Gallery VW is where I've bought two VW's and my mother one as well. Rich Spinelli, VW Sales Mgr. took care of both of us very nicely, although the sales woman was new and I did know a bit more about the car than she did. She was very enthusiastic, friendly, and not pushy. I was in there three different times driving Beetles and Jettas before leasing the GTI I ended up with.
I've also had some good dealings with Bernardi... Bought my wife's car from Quirk, went back to buy my car from them (quickly became a horror story for another thread
) Newest ride is from Manchester, but then again we live in NH now...
Heck, help the GF get whatever, just don't let her buy a KIA!!!

Re: (RECTHEGR8)

Kia's a good car all around if you don't beat on it. If you beat on it, guess what, it breaks. Nice part about that is it doesn't matter because it can get fixed no problem.
Vw's a nice car, pretty tough to break, but when you do, you're somewhat more stuck to a limited warranty.
I'll take the VW anyday myself, but it's all a matter of how much she's going to take care of the car. If she does, then get the VW, if she wants to romp, go for the Kia

Re: went car shopping with the gf... (MicrobiologyNerd)

You and your GF both need my car, not an R32. See sig.

Also, I do work for Gallery VW and their service guys don't know jack about R32's or "Phantoms" (Phaetons) as one of them called it. LOL, clueless. Had to do some correcting myself during some light conversation with a couple of them. heh.

Please explain, Wellesely sucks big d!ck. Thats were I got my Jetta and they fu cked me twice. Once on the sale and second on the rims...they put "brand new"ones on and they were gouged to sh it, Never mind they have about 3 VW techs there now. VWoA got a nice letter from me about them. The reason Wellesley is nice is because they have to put up with the high maintenance, rich little, douchbags from that area.
As for Bernardi, I don't know about the salesmen, but their service is awesome. I know some people say they suck, and they take too long. This is because they get cars from all of the other dealerships fu ck ups. Like when the car comes in they Bernardi has no service history on that car. The techs have to go through the whole thing to see what was replaced. Then when they find the problem order the part and that depends on if the part is in stock or not. As for the wait period they're backed up for a couple of months, because of the recalls and all the other cars coming in from different dealerships. I heard they have a new tech starting there next Moday. You have no idea.
