Pfft, why buy a 3 year old one for $13xxx when you can buy a brand-spanking-new one for $18xxx with the warranty? My '17 stickered for $24k as I recall and the "price" on the lease documents was $18395. So the nominal depreciation is from MSRP, not actual out-the-door price.

I've always thought that VW styling was a bit bland.
But this new Jetta is very nice to look at.
A big step forward in design.
Enjoy.

Enjoying a new vehicle is more important that worrying about depreciation.

I paid right around 15,000 for my 17.... Also Have an extended warranty till 140K miles. VW do have really bad resell, but if you keep them long enough it won't matter.

Very nice car. Many reviewers have raved over that sweet little 1.4T. If you pay attention, it is surprising how much better a VW looks at 10 to 15 years old than just about any domestic brand. This from a guy who has driven domestics almost exclusively for over 30 years. VeeDub is at the top of my list for checking out next time around, came extremely close to buying a Passat when I bought my Lincoln but didn't want to spend the money in the end (was looking at new).

Part of the Jetta depreciation thing IMO is the market gets flooded with Jetta rental sell offs every year.

No idea on 2019 Jetta. However the massive depreciation is off MSRP. In VW case MSRP is not selling price. For example Passat is 50% at 3 years. However at same time locally they are selling $28k MSRP Passat brand new for $20.5k. So in 3 years a $6k depreciation is on par or better then many vehicles sold near MSRP.
