Used to be, if an American wanted a Volkswagen
that wasn't available for sale in the United States, Mexico was the place to go. Who knows how many old Bugs made the trek north back in the day. Now, though, if it's the VW
and City Jetta
you want, you can head north. VW is releasing
last year's Golf and Jetta as base models in the Canadian VW line-up. The Golf starts at $14,900 and the Jetta is $16,700. And those are Canadian dollars.
Biodiesel freaks who are thinking of rushing to Canada
to get the diesel
models that VW will not sell in the United States next year should stay put, though. Volkswagen's inability to meet emissions laws in Canada will prevent the diesel versions of the 2007 Golf and Jetta to be sold there just like in the U.S. Just sit tight until 2008 (or 2009. We'll see).
