VW's are great little cars but they are expensive to work on. The way they are built everything takes forever to get to. At least thats what I hear from the techs at our VW dealership.

you must have been looking at newer TDIs, 2000-2003 is like a mini 12v cummins

It feels great to get one paid off. I have been payment free for almost 2 years. I still get the itch to buy another but think of the 500 bucks a month I am saving now.
Congrats

Congrats on paying your truck off two years early!
Buying another vehicle that includes a payment because it gets better fuel mileage does not make sense. (cents)
How far can you drive your truck for the additional cost (payment, insurance, maintenance etc.) that a 2nd vehicle would cost?
Drive the truck, forget the VW.

I have a 02 jetta TDI with bigger turbo, injectors, tuning, exhaust, and lowering kit and get 50mpg on a reg basis. Cars a pain in the ass to work on but saves me a ton in fuel. Costs me $200 a month to drive while my truck would cost around $800. 2013 Gm is putting a diesel in the Cruze and I will be looking to purchase a new one in 2014.
