After doing a lot of research to find the perfect vehicle for me, I went to Schukei Chevrolet and Volkswagen in Mason City, IA as they were the closest VW dealer to my home. I was out in the lot looking at the Jetta Sportwagens and a sales rep came out to help. I told him that I wanted a Jetta Sportwagen with the 6 speed manual transmission, the monster mats, splash guards and I did not want a sunroof. The sales rep told me I was stupid for wanting a manual transmission and that because I was a female I should opt for the DSG automatic transmission. I was so offended and insulted that I walked out and went to Mankato Motors and after working with Joe Bidwell, I was able to get the exact vehicle I wanted WITHOUT compromise. I am so happy with my 2012 Jetta Sportwagen TDI, 6 speed manual tramsmission and it is the perfect fit for my family.
