My girlfriend and I are tossing around the idea of selling our 2003 VW Passat 1.8t. It has 147k miles. Recent maintenance in the past year includes...
New Fuel Pump/Fuel Filter
New Front Pads/Rotors
Fresh Brake Fluid
New Thermostat/Green Coolant Sensor
K&N Drop-In Filter
Just this past week, I had a set of four new Michelin's mounted/balanced. I put in new KYB shocks/mounts front/rear. I also have a pair of new motor mounts ready to be installed. The guys at Lesueur can verify it's a good solid car.
There are no immediate issues with the car. My girlfriend uses it as a daily commuter from North Phoenix to Litchfield Park. She's quite fond of it, but we are considering a TDI to help save on fuel costs.
Given all of the recent maintenance in the past year, we would like to see close to $6k for it. We know its a lil higher than what KBB and NADA list. But, given all the issues high mileage VWs could have, and the fact that you would be stepping into a well-sorted vehicle rather than a ticking time bomb... it would be well worth it!
Let me know what you think, and I can forward pictures if needed.
