Default how did they get this car registered in the US?

It's not my car, but I'm amazed that it's for sale and registered in the US.

My guess is that it might be a military car. Certain military personnel are allowed to import their car with them when the return to the states. I am guessing that is how the car got here and is registerable.

What grinds my gears is in Europe they can actually get a manual tranny Passat TDI!!! If you requested a new Passat TDI here in the US with a manual transmission, the dealer would look at you like a dog that has heard a strange sound!

They have been trying to sell this car on Craigs list for quite a while.

For over $40,000

Want to guess what the "reserve not met and never will be" amount is?

Unless someone writes a check for this car there is no bank in the US that will finance a $40,000+ Passat.

How about insuring this ride...In case this car gets totaled one would get market value payout.

And the bidding has ended on Ebay. If only there was no reserve, the lucky high bidder would have had to pay......$18,101

ANY military personell can ship a car home if they can afford it. It must be federalized and inspected upon entry, however. Looks like this one meets those criteria.

Default Green Car Co

Given that this car is located in kKrkland, WA., I would venture to guess that this is a Green Car Co. vehicle for sale. There have been numerous discussions about this company's operation on the boards. Do a search.

They probably have it priced at a figure well north of 24K.

Anyone in the Seattle area want to swing by the place and check it out?

Not to side track this thread, but a while ago there was a Euro Spec TDI 4 door Golf wagen, I think a 1995 that was brought over here by a military person. The seller was on vwvortex.com, The seller was having problems selling the car becaues a non-military person could not title the car in their state. If I find the car I will post it if someone is intrested...
