Thats too much for me so im looking for something else I can drive that will cost less.

The two things im looking at right now is the base line civic or a new Jetta TDI but when i went to try and build my own online it dosent let you pick the TDI motor unless you pick the most expensive trim option and with that the car is only going to save me about $1000 a year on fuel which isnt worth it to me. Maybe some one can shed more light on this?

Any other suggestions? If i cant get the TDI in the base line model i think ill be going with a civic
What if you talked with a local vw sales rep? Maybe they will be able to get you the TDI without the expensive trim (please do not flame about sales reps I know it is coming)

Civic should be fine and depending on the wheels it is ok looking when stock so it's not bad.
