      1996 Jetta GL
      5spd manual
      manual windows
      WORKING A/C!
      245,700 miles

      I bought this from my friend last fall, and put some miles on it. Didn't even know the a/c worked until trying it mid-summer. I would be keeping it but I was just handed down another car and don't really need three running cars for one driver.

      I agreed with my friend to give him back some of the parts he put in so that's why it's missing moldings and a shift knob right now. I just drove 600 miles round trip to NY and it performed great.

      Done within the past year:
      new battery
      new ign coil
      newish jom coilovers
      new tbelt
      new radiator
      newish plugs cap and rotor
      new vacuum lines
      new rear wheel bearings
      new ebrake cables
      new power steering pump
      new rear muffler
      control arm bushings
      upper strut mounts/bearings

      "upgrades"
      tt short shift kit
      oem glovebox added
      aux jack installed (needs one wire re-soldered)
      oem smoked tail lights

      Bad:
      cat/exhaust heatshield rattle haven't investigated
      2nd gear grind if shifted too quick
      small oil leak at pan gasket
      RUST
      front lift points are rough, cant fit a scissor jack on em
      driver seat bolster is shot
      airbag light on
      check engine light on (did just pass ct emissions)
      third brake light is taped in (wrong one - had to replace rear window last fall)
      needs tires
