Soon to be Passat CC Owner

Post by MINKYMERC » Mon Feb 21, 2011 11:27 am

Hi all,

Just had to tell someone about what to me is so exciting.

Yesterday, I traded in my 3 year Old Mercedes C Class for a 6 month old (60 plate) Black Passat CC 2.0 TDi (170) GT DSG. with all the toys - Leather with memory and heated sports seats, Sat Nav, Folding Mirrors, Bluetooth phone connectivity, Mudflaps, boot liner, Adaptive Chassis Control

It is not the colour I would have preferred but the p/ex price was far better than anything else I had been offered by £1500. So I decide to go for it.

I just hope I am doing the right thing - I couldn't afford another C Class with the same spec. Servicing, VED, Insurance, Fuel Consumption should all work out cheaper

The Electronic Parking Brake is one of my concerns but I am hoping to be lucky with it - seemed OK on the test drive combined with Auto Hold.

I am looking forward to collecting the car on 1st. March. Must be mad at nearly 70 Lol but I think it is a stunning looking car. I just hope that it is as reliable as all the Mercs I have had.

I have been offered GAP insurance for £299 (instead of £399) and Service Plan for three years at £349.

I wonder if any of you knowledgeable guys can advise on these items- are they worth having?
