Any disadvantage to 2011 Tdi?

I thought I read something was different about engine, DEF, something...but don't recall.

Been look fo a used 2012-2013 but just found very inexpensive 2011 Exec I'm considering. trying to figure out if it's missing anything that 2012 doesn't provide!

I was only thinking 2012+ to keep away from first model year runs.

We have a fixed and certified 2011. We are happy with everything except the MPG. We are getting between 22-24 highway.

We had another 2011 that was bought back that got 30-32mpg. I wish yrktreg was doing the ECU flashing he theorized about. Iíd buy in a heartbeat.

Lots of differences. Your question is much too broad. What is your intended use, and what are your expectations of your future vehicle?

Iím trying to determine what are the differences between a 2011 Tdi and a 2012 tdi given the same trim level. From what I can tell they are the same HP/torque engine. Are there truly any major differences in the primary systems? Or are they the same vehicle as a 2012?

You had mentioned 2013 also, which is a different engine\turbo, etc.....
2011 & 2012 will be the same gen\engine\output

You guys down there had different trims than us, so maybe someone from your neck of the woods can tell you about those differences.
If it was me, I'd carefully review the TDI fix details as depending on what kind of milage the units you're considering have, and when the fix was performed,
Think about how much you will be driving it, and how many years you want to own it.... in my scenario, I will be using the 10 years from "in service date" vs the more common 4 year\48k milage calculation as I don't drive mine that much and I picked it up with only 60k on the clock...

This is obviously assuming that you are looking at similar condition units, etc.

2011 is also "the first" of the new gen\style..... so I'm always weary of the initial version of any product as a lot of stuff may still be getting sorted out\refined\etc.
