The thing I really like about the used one is the warranty. Otherwise they are basically the same cars besides color combos....which would you consider?

where do they get a used R with 5200 miles? was it a test drive car or what?<p>what color do you like better. a lot of people here dislike the gobi interior, but i honestly think tigray/gobi is one of the best looking color combos there are....but i'm biased cause that's what I have... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>once you add tax, the used one will cost you more than the new one.<p>i'd rather get new, and have peace of mind that no one else did power launches, ground the gears, etc etc....<p>you can always buy an extended down the road if you still plan to keep the car beyond 50k.

Re: Which one is the better deal? (Tekk)

Hard to give you advice when one price is + taxes, etc. and the other is "out the door". What are the apples to apples numbers?

Normally, I am a big believer in the CPO program.

Less if you wait for another Yannis group buy. Not worth it IMO, take the new one.<p>Besides, Ti / Gobi is SHARP! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Which one is the better deal? (Tekk)

Other than questioning why someone would sell a car like that with 5200 miles, the silver/nordcap combo would do it for me.<p>I would inquire about service records to make sure the car isn't a lemon, I guess the other determining factor I would use is: how long would it take ME to put 5200 miles on a car ... in my case, that is about 4 months worth of use. For that I could use an extra 2 grand in my pocket to end up with a color combo I would rather have.<p>Extended warranty is worth the price of admission as well ... nice selling feature. Since they are both 2006's, the GT issues from 2004/5 aren't a consideration either.<p>

There are two 2006 S60R GT's - Sonic Blue / Nordkap with sport body package (which I thought you couldn't get in Sonic blue) for sale at Volvo of Danbury. one has 4,700 miles the other 6,500. Both are listed for 39,995. Not sure about the warranty.<p>

Heck, that is a no brainer. The new car is cheaper (out-the-door), and hasn't been abused by "test drivers" who want to see "wotlshedo?"<p>If you decide you want the extended warranty, then shop for a good price and get it separately.<p>Also, both are GT's. If this is what you want, go for one. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>

Per Volvo regulations, a retailer CANNOT sell the Certified Pre-Owned warranty on a demo or loaner car. Only previously titled vehicles qualify, which means that someone owned that car.

06 (used) is a better color combo IMO, but is priced a bit too high.<br>The person that traded it in got whacked so there's no reason you should pay that much. About 34,500 would be about right
