I am looking for a daily driver that can be handed down when the teens get their license and came across what looks like a decent deal. Currently have a BMW X5 and a new Mercedes GLE. Its a 2009 CC VR6 4motion Sport with 75k. I am not extremely familiar with VW except for a 99' Jetta that I had and I had no issues with it, just regular oil changes.
Are there any specific things that I should look at in terms of engine, trans, suspension, electrical?
As well, what are the standard maintenance items that should be addressed? Its clean, has some surface rust on the two rear quarter panels which looks like it would be covered under the corrosion warranty for another year or so.
I can get it for around 4500 - it does have NAV and the upgraded sound system. Interior is decent, seats need cleaned well and the fabric for the sunroof cover has come out a little.
It ran great, had excellent acceleration and no vibrations. Just concerned about engine and transmission reliability and upkeep costs for a cheaper car.
