The car runs strong. Pulls hard and has some zip for a 2.slo. Doesn't burn oil, well maintained mechanically.
I average about 33mpg on the highway, 29mpg city (I work in State College, PA).
This car is not a beauty queen. This is a great Daily, or could be used for a project car.
There is a good bit of dings and dents. PO slid into a guard rail on the Driver's Side. I got the car stuck under a hay wagon (with the original Transmission that reverse went out).
Other than that, the car is sound. Typical MK3 rust on the hatch (around the window and latch). Frame, body, strut towers are rust free. There is some surface rust on the fenders. The Frame is notched on the Passenger side. So, someone looking for a project car, you're not going to need to worry about that to drop this car LOW.
Not sure what else to say about the car. She's been good to me, I've taken care of her as best as I could.
Reason for selling is that I've found a car that I want. I love this car and would have no problem keeping her. But, I've owned the car for three years now, looking for something new to get into.
I don't have to sell this car, but I'm looking to do a quick sale. I'm looking to get ~$1800 for the car. With the work that went into the car and the used transmission, no one should be worried to take this car anywhere.
Car will need a few things, namely new tires (at least 2) and an alignment.
I have 4 extra rims that will go with the car, they are the same rims on the car now.
If you have any questions, feel free to txt or call me. (814) 599-8228
The car is located in Huntingdon, PA. Zip code is 16652.
