I have literally only heard one person in my life that has had an OK buying experience from them but ive heard everything else in between. They will jack up prices, sell you busted cars, deny warranty work, act rudely to you, hassle the **** out of you and generally enjoy ****ing you over.
I wouldn't buy a used bicycle tire from any Casey Stealership.

That was Chris that got hosed by them.
Not my choice. I picked the wagon so she gets to pick this next car. We wanted something smaller (then the wagon) but not too small. She was looking at the Fiat 500, but i wouldn't ride in that thing unless it was the Abarth edition. She really likes the bug. She's paying for it, so i cant say much.
I know better than to step foot on the Casey lots.
It really hasn't been the dealer ship other than the lack of communication. I have gotten more information from Vortex than the dealers knows about the new beetle. (Not that its reliable information) The sunroofs are also being reprogrammed due to a design flaw. When the sunroof is back all the way, the hatch smacks it when opened. VWs fix, make the ~18 inch sunroof only open 8 inches.
The gauge pod thing pissed me off. $700 in parts and you are going to give me $150 off at purchase price? I DONT THINK SO. Keep the $150 and order the parts. Ill wait on them, then you can install them for me since VW advertises the turbo models with them.
The paint was another issue. Although we didn't pick the pearl color when asked if we would accept another color wife says "sure if its the pearl black" with the dealership saying "oh VW decided they are not even going to offer that color". Why print the brochures advertising something you are not going to offer than? Idiots.
My roommate just bought a brand new wrx from Casey and got a decent deal... Had a good down payment tho and bought brand new, so might have made a difference. I work for a dealership and my personal opinion is that alot of the dealers around here will rip you off... buy out of state is my personal opinion and dont go to a dealership to buy a used one. Buying a used car from a dealer you are going to get ripped off period. If you buy used have it looked at buy a trusted mechanic before purchasing, the only quality you can trust is brand new... in that case it shoud also have less than 50 miles.
i also got a quote for a rear wheel bearing and working for a local dealership i should have gotten a discount, which the price they gave me had no discount... lucky me i used to work for a dealer that also sold volkswagens in ny so one call to them and i saved almost $100 on a"$260" wheel bearing thats only because i left on good terms and continue to get my employee discount... I used ECS tuning alot before i worked for a dealer and got a decent deal on parts. Was always very happy with the service i received from them.
Yea buying from a private party is even more risky as I have found out on the wagon I got last year that's ran me over $2,500 so far.
On a good note I picked up an oil filter housing cap plus 5 A- condition head rests for $25 from Oceana so I consider it a good deal. The one I picked over was a 4 door 01 jetta vr6, heads been pulled and it took a hit to the right front and the radiator is gone along with some other stuff. It has the 16 inch alloys with the fat 5 spokes minus the caps. All the seats are there and are the two tone cloth seats, glove box is gone, carpet is there and good, door panels are gone, sunroof is there and intact as is the back glass with the defrost grid, trunk lid is good and trunk carpeting is good.
The other is a passat a model 4 and four door but not sure of the year. Its a 1.8 but turbo is gone, interior is tan and dark brown but its rough. Another front end hit, heads pulled, blocks there and solid looking, turbo exhaust manifold are there, wheels are gone.
There are two wagon trunk covers in the office but I don't know if they are for vw, theres also a mk3 / 4 plastic grill and a bunch of turbos on a shelf.
That is my hood. What's wrong with it?
That could look good if it is dark red. Anyone remember the red mk1 gti seats?

The guy that got me into parting out corrados made a set with NOS fabric:
Thinking about a TDI swap? Review the TDI swap directory
My AHU-TDI Corrado's Conversion to European Spec AFN-VNT
Wish my red mk1 interior looked like that I basically have to replace everything. Got some new molded carpet from newton commercial, so that's a start. If anyone is interested in recovering some Recaro's for a mk1, ive got a set of trashed trophies that came in it I wouldn't mind unloading.
Is there anyone in the VA Beach (Hampton Roads) area that has a VAGCOM? I just bought a 2012 Jetta SE and I will be purchasing the euro switch and disabling DRLs. I live off of Independance and Virgina Beach.
On a side note, every day on my way to work I drive past a house on Witchduck Road that has a blue slammed MK1 and an old transporter van in the back. He also used to have an old Army 5 ton or duecenhalf parked in the front. I saw a sign that says Village Customs in the back. Are you on here? Does anyone know him?
No love for noobs in VA beach?

I know it's colormatched and pretty, but ditch thaat fram filter, especially on a freshly rebuilt motor. Go to VW and get a stock filter, ask for the larger sized one (they'll look at you funny and then look it up and realize there is one)
