Still relatively low KM for a 14 year old car. I would pay $4000 for something like that.

Thanks Nigel. Just noticed your reply. I was thinking selling I could hopefully sell somewhere around the $4,000 mark.

I've listed the car at $4,700 with safety and e-test and both sets of wheels. I'd really like something a little above $4,000 out of it. I'll list it on here with a link to my ad too.

Hi all,

I am now in the market for a Toyota Sienna. With a kid and a boat, I need more space. Plus, having to move my front seats every time I insert or remove the child seat is annoying the crap out of me. Now this whole dieselgate thing is making me wonder what to do with my car. Is there any market for it? Any ideas on a reasonable trade-in value? Not sure I want to park it until the buy-back. It is a 2012 Golf Wagen TDI Highline with Nav, and has around 90K km on it. Original owner, all records, etc etc. The only downsides are the tires - both all seasons and winters - are ending their tread life (4-5/10ths and 5-6/10th respectively). Plus I need to fix or replace the cracked front bumper. Runs perfectly, everything works, and I added rear mud flaps and an aluminum skid plate to it. All service done by VW.

Input appreciated,

Sophia

Edit: Forgot to add, it is one of the rare manual 6 speeds

Are there any awesome front bumper repairs on this car?

Well your repair has now held up three years, but I somehow think it won't fly with a trade in ha ha! But wondering if a body shop can reinforce it, and repaint it or something

-Not much rust. Rockers are solid, needs front fenders.

-Cloth interior
-No CEL

Looking to see what's it worth if i sold as is, and/or worth after if i was to pay someone to swap it to manual (I have a manual donor car).

Thanks,
$800-$1200 as it sits

Your car is 15 years old with a bad transmission. I know these cars are rare, but the steve6 was right on the money with his estimation. Even after the swap, it will not be worth more than around $2500-$3000 and the swap will cost you at least $1500, meaning you will still only get about $1000-$1500 out of it after all that work.

So in the long run...if you enjoy the mk4 wagon...swap it and drive it. If you have plans to get something newer and won't want to keep up with the repairs, sell it as it is.

Has anyone been looking at the 2015 TDIs that have landed on dealer lots recently? Do they seem way overpriced? I mean I know they will ask whatever they think people would pay, but I saw two low KM Highline Wagons that have been on the dealer's lot for many weeks. Probably because they asking $37000 each for them.

Anyone bought one these new round of TDIs? How much did you talk them down?

The big unknown and hence the question that needs asking and answering is how much the extended warranty for eleven years is worth. To me, I placed the value of it in excess of 5k. But then, I fully plan on keeping the 15 TDI SEL for AT LEAST eleven years.

Sorry I should have said the price is Canadian. However, what's this about extended warranty? Are they running that in Canada as well?

Looking to sell my 05 MkIV Jetta, BEW, as I've purchased another common-rail-diesel (Jeep Liberty).

The good:
8 mounted tires (Hankook snows, Pirelli all-seasons), all less than two years old
3 keys, one working fob, one key is "valet" key
front struts/springs from 2016
Rear shocks/springs from 2015
Rear brakes new spring 2017
Power windows all work
All lights work, A/C works, factory stereo, no reportable collisions
Front fenders replaced under rust warranty 2014, trunk lid replaced 2014 out of pocket.

The not-so-good:
Right side took a light rubbing from the back end of a honda civic that was backing out as I drove past in the parking lot - I didn't get it repaired.
Right rear door locks only manually - this is from before the minor collision.
Just passed 350,000km on a trip from Cambridge to Manitoba and back - at 5 L/100 km (ok, that's not so bad), and it's running like a top.
Muffler will need to be replaced within 18 months (possibly)
Front brakes are getting to the "need rotors and pads" stage
Some rust is invading the doors and it's out of rust warranty
50,000 to the timing belt change. (Last done at about 245,000 by a previous owner)

What should I expect on, say, Kijiji?

$5K USD is a lot of money for something that you will probably never fully use. I think it's better to put that money in a bank and if needed, draw from it. There is a good chance you will have lots of $$ left over at the end. Also, what happens if the car is written off in an accident? Does the warranty goes with it?
