      CAR WENT TO SCRAP-- NO LONGER AVAILABLE, SORRY


      I bought this car in college because I needed something to commute with for the highway. Car is in decent shape, a few dings and scratches that could be fixed otherwise body is in good shape. I bought it with 125,xxx and it now has 201,xxx miles.

      Here is the back story..
      The car broke down on me in the second week of May- felt like I was pushing the gas pedal to the floor and no resistance, just revving the RPMs. I had it towed and once it got to the shop, it fired up and drove fine. Had the timing belt, serp belt, and AC belt all replaced (5/10). A week later it was sputtering to and from work every time I stepped on the gas. Finally I was almost home and it died. The car would not even start this time so we pushed it into a lot. I then had it towed to another mechanic who thought it was an electrical problem so he tore through the car and could not find any problems. He was a total douche and left the car all apart for two months so we ended up towing it from his shop to my parents house. My dad helped me put a lot of the car back together and we will be wrapping up the wires soon.

      All in all, we think there is something wrong in the trans. It threw a code for shift solenoids but there are 6 and they cost more money than I want to invest in this car any longer. Would be a great car for a 5 spd swap or someone who wants to invest in a used trans and try to run it for awhile. It could be a really nice car if someone wanted to take the time but I have moved on and just want it gone.


      Good:
      -Timing belt, serp belt, and AC belt all replaced only 1,000 miles ago (5/10)
      -New Oil Pan replaced (3/09)
      -Maintained every 3,000 with oil.
      -Tune up at 180,xxx
      -New battery (2/09)
      -Caps and Rotor replaced (4/09)
      -Rear tires are almost brand new (1/10), front tires have some wear
      -New ebrake cable (2/10)
      -NJ Inspection good until Jan 2012


      Bad:
      -No AC
      -Rust spots (like all mark3s)
      -Paint chip in hood (small, easy fix)

      $1000 OBO
      Car will need to be towed since I'm not sure how far it will run. WILL NOT PART- SELLING AS WHOLE, AS IS.
      I can take more pictures of the interior for serious inquires only. Email me at renkel22@gmail.com for more info

      My parents want this car off their property so I have until the end of October or the car will be going to the junkyard.

      New price.. $550 firm
      At that price it's basically a steal. Just had the timing belt, serp belt, and ac belt done less than 1,000 miles ago and that cost more than my asking price. Lots of new(er) parts too
