Volkswagen is selling 2011 Jettas for $5,995 each through Gilt Groupe.
Volkswagen is selling three 2011 Jettas through Gilt Groupe for $5,995--slashing the “1” from the usual $15,995 starting price.

One car will be sold at noon Eastern time for three days starting on Dec. 15 in the flash sale. The sale will only be accessible on the first day through Gilt mobile applications on the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices. It will extend to Gilt.com on Dec. 16 and 17.

The redesigned 2011 Jetta launched in October. It gets fuel economy of 24 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. The car comes with a folding rear seat, electronic stability control, a tire-pressure-monitoring system, heated side mirrors and a four-speaker sound system.

Volkswagen is the first automotive brand to be sold on Gilt, a flash-sale site that offers high-end products to its members.

For $5,995 I expect a Tata Nano.

For a $5,995 2011 Jetta I expect no chance at actually buying it.

My wife's aunt got up early, showered, got dressed and waited for the van to pull up. She had read too much into the standard letters that they mail to everyone.
