    Good and Bad news


    so...for those of you that know me even a little - you know that I am a VW nut. More specifically a Passat nut. That is why this may come as a bit of a shock. I no longer own a VW, well, as soon as it is inspected I am ending my lease early.....It hurt to think about doing it but given circumstances - I don't have too much of a choice..... So......Next question...what is Laura gonna drive? Here's the good news. We just bought a 2003 Nissan Xterra SE. That's the 3.3L V6, titanium trim X rollin on 265s. I will have some better pics up, hopefully tomorrow, but these are the ones that I took a couple of hours ago when it was dark (so they be a bit blurry)....

    The VW high-priests aren't going to like this one bit. Don't worry, I wont bring you up at the next secret Volkswagen clan meeting . Tell me that you at least looked at the Touareg to stay within the German lineage. Just fuckin with you. Nice looking SUV you've got there. So when are you going to slap some 35" Mud Terrain tires on her?

    Me --> LOVES VW....unfortunatly, I have been discouraged by wayyyy too many people to buy one, because of mechanic problems (and also $$$ to repair) and apparently, parts falling apart rather quickly.

    let me explain a little more for you guys that are going to ban me from the VW clan...

    IN may when Laura gradiamates from her masters, we are going to be moving to the waterbury/duxbury/huntington/bolton area. for those of you that may know the area, we are tlakin 90% dirt roads with little plowing. My 1.8T front wheel drive wagon was not going to be a good idea for her. She is going to be a teacher so she has to be to school early and we are going to be in the middle of nowhere (but close to the B&J Factory - hahahahaha Chris)... I knew that I needed something with 4wd for the area we are moving to otherwise I would not be able to sleep in the morning when she would be driving to work. I didn't feel that the 5er was the right chouice for safety, given the area. So I looked into gettin out of this 5 and into another one - the 04s had a GLS wagon (same) but with 4motion. I talked to the dealer and they were absolutly no help at all. I have 7 months left on this lease and 90mi..... I need out of it now. VW's only offer on the GLS 4m was to pay 1500 now and my payments would go up almost 100 bucks You can obvioiusly tell my answer to that. ->

    I can't afford that and came right out and said it from the begining. I can also tell you that I will never deal with this VW dealership again and I will discourage anyone else from dealing with them too.

    Basically - i need my payments to stay about the same for a better car. VW couldn't help and they are now trying to screw me with ending my lease (but that's a whoile nother story).

    Anyway - I decided that a 4m passat prolly wouldn't even work for my purposes either cause ground clearence is gonna be an issue. So, as hard of a decision as it was (and you have no idea how much I LOVE this car), I decided that we needed an SUV. Now, on a side note, not only do I absolutly LOVE the 5, but I really dislike SUVs. Howver, I think that it is the best option for our purposes and I think that we are in a situation that is makes sense to have one. Not like those people in VA that have big SUVs with 4wd for absolutly no reason.

    There are only 2 SUVs that I like that are in the price range - the Xterra and the Durango. The X was the only one in the price range. The dealer didn't have an 04 that fit wahat I was looking for or could afford but they had this 03 SE that was a dealer car to transport managers around from dealer to dealer - all highway miles nad babied. In AWESOME shape, trust me - i looked it ovver once or twice. I got some interesting looks coming out from underneath the car when it was raining out.....

    I tell the dealer what I need and by finageling insurance rates and other things it turns out that I got the 100,000mi extended warranty, an 03 4wd cool lookin X for 9 dollars more a month than my current payments. Not too shabby

    To address the toureg....Laura asked me if we could spent almost our whole savings on it and that woul dmake the payments on a Toureg about 10 bucs more a month. Obviously I thought about it for a sec but then the house thought came to mind. as cool as the toureg is - I WANT A HOUSE. I am still going to remain a member on the VW/Passat boards and I am going to through the Passat board (B5One) sticker on the X. I am considering this a hiatus from VW and the Passat. I was almost in tears when it came to thinking about getting rid of the 5 - man I love that car. I still have it but I can't go over on miles so I can't drive it. She has to go to my work lot and sit til the inspector can come - then she's outta here - I will shed a tear when it goes away.....

    Too bad you're in VT. My brother is a VW executive and has all of Maine, NH and northern MA as his territory. He might of been able to help you with this dealership.

    Hey!!!! Waterbury is not the middle of nowhere!!!!!! Sounds like you will be right in my neighborhood. Sweet spec house being built on Blush hill if you are looking.

    Good call on the SUV, we get tons of snow here, and you will need the 4wd.
