I'd be surprised if you could find one under $25k. I bought a Jetta TDI 3 years ago. Out the door for $25,500 and that was a decent deal at the time. I couldn't find any other dealers below $28K on the Jetta at the time.

[quote]Not sure what you mean. The person that would ultimately be taxed if this were a "gift" would be the MIL. Not the OP.

This is true, but if I'm not mistaken, it would just be classified as a gift, and since this loan is only $10K, the entirety of it would fall under ...

Do the crawfish just not move much in cold weather and therefore, the traps aren't as full during cold weather? Thus reducing supply and driving the price up in the short term and delaying the start of ...
