My daughter's 2009 Jetta S with 2.5 and manual trani has been immobilized by the immobilizer. Dealer says it needs to have the instrument cluster replaced and a new key made.
Generally expected condition, otherwise, for the 147K miles. Car is pretty much stock. Does have a sunroof and alloy wheels. Not rusty, New radiator. has been reliable transportation.
Fix it or use it for parts. Needs to be towed out of dealer in Mandeville, Louisiana soon. No reasonable offer refused!
