Buying used

With the limited number of cars around, chances are you will have to wait some time before they appear on the used market. However, when they do appear they should represent an excellent used buy and a low-cost alternative for anyone looking at a used Passat. It should even undercut an equivalent aged Golf too which, considering the amount of extra car you get for your cash, is a good buy.


The Jetta continues to be a bit of an unknown quantity in the range and because of this it won’t be as sought after on the used market as other models like the Golf or Passat. Diesel models should get the most attention, particularly the low-cost 1.6 TDI BlueMotion Technology choice. However, expect to take a bit of a hit on your original outlay as residuals will suffer more compared to the more popular models either side of it.
