I had an A2 Jetta as well, and agree it was pretty cheap as far as repairs and maintenance go, but I bought it new at about 4 times what I paid for my 300D, and I financed it. So that killed the cost of ownership numbers for me. I'm pretty sure a 20 year old Jetta would have cost me more than my W123 to own, they just are not built to last that long.
