Hey everyone... I know it's been a long ass time since I posted or participated here... Just figured I would say my goodbyes. Today i traded in my 10 forte sx. She treated me well but it was time to go.

Anyway, met A lot of great folks through this site and I wish you guys the best. Jeff / crock.. Keep at it and enjoy guys!

I may have have some left over parts for sale that the dealer didn't take.

If / when I decide to sell them I post them in the appropriate areas.

Thanks again and good luck everyone!

I traded it for a 2011 jetta tdi w/ nav. Fully loaded. I'll be honest. I loved my sx. The only issue I had was the stiff ride but that was my fault for going with the lower springs. Other than that, it was a great car.

I got the jetta tdi for a few reasons.. mpg, huge back seat (we just had a daughter 2 months ago), and finally needed a automatic. Wife didn't like the 6spd..

On the drive home from the dealer (2 hour drive) we averaged 48mpg. Can beat that for a non hybrid.

those new Jettas are nice...what are you possibly going to sell, any exterior/interior leds for cheap? I cant remember if you had them but if so the dealer wont care if it has those or stock bulbs and i may be willing to buy

Those Jettas are nice but VW has the worst reputation for reliability, hopefully they have gotten better in the 2011 model year. My Audi A6 was a nightmare!

Can't beat 48 mpg...and the lil one will make anyone who really cares prioritize their life. Reason why I had to get a Sedan rather than a Koup. That's life!!! Congrats and best of luck!!!

Thanks man.. i really enjoyed the car and the work i put into it. She will be missed.

ill have a list soon.. mostly some stock parts i took out when replacing items and tons of smaller leds (not the good ones.) I wasnt prepared to trade it in yesterday and they took me buy surprise and 100% met everything i asked for. the dealer was 2 hours from my house so i had to dump her quick.. lol

Yeah, i read about the reliability, so i opted for the VW 6yr 100,000 mile warranty. it cost me an extra $1700 bucks but to me it was worth it.

Hate to see you go. But with the addition of a little one (Congrats btw) and with that gas mileage you can't beat it. Honestly I looked at the Jetta before buying the Forte. But everybody and their grandma had one around here. ^^ Very popular care in TN. Oh Well I'll be waiting for your parts list to go on sale :)
