I will look into the VW, but from what I understand, even used ones can be a bit pricey.
I saw you said you still have your truck, but you just have an itch it's on her last leg.
Set up a search criteria for Autotrader (private seller only if you can), craigslist, and any other local classifieds you may have.
Set your self an absolute top price. Tell yourself the highest mileage you're OK with, (I suggest diesel for engine longevity, but many gas cars make
it to 250-300k these days), and if you can drive a manual, get a manual.
Be in control of this one, and give yourself time to make the right decision. If you allow a situation for yourself to get cornered, I can almost
promise you'll be unhappy with what you get forced to get based of necessity.
And above all, before you make the purchase.... RESEARCH RESEARCH RESEARCH!!!!!!!!!!
PS: You were right about cars and watches being something people spend too much money on... And that's because they don't find a utilitarian product.
They don't research, they don't put in the time to find the right thing, and they end up allowing them to get stuck with whats available (although no
one really needs a watch, I haven't owned one since I was 15).
