Asking price and selling price are two totally diffetent things. You can ask whatever you want, and some idiots on Kijiji do.

Yea... annoying. Not sure how it ends. Does someone come and pay near the asking price? Or after months of lowballs the seller just takes one.

Lol someone had a 05 passat with 450K listed for ~$6500. For kicks I offered half and I got an angry reply.

What is a 2003 Jetta Wagon TDI 5spd Fully-loaded with 360k worth? Provided it has had recent timing belt & brakes jobs completed. Also with very minimal rust at the rocker where it meets the fender.

Wondering what my 2004 Jetta Wagon TDI would be worth to you guys:

The story (and list of new parts)

I bought it at 249k with a bad auto trans - It got a 5 speed swap, new clutch, new timing belt/water pump and a new lift pump motor. The cam was inspected at that point, and it's fine. Since then, it's had new LCA's, right complete tie rod, left outer tie rod, 2 front driveshafts (due to leaking boots), right rear caliper carrier, AC compressor, belt tensioner, and front pads. I've repaired both the hood and trunk lock switches as they were giving trouble. I have 2 sets of wheels for it, both in great shape, that i'll include.

Cons:

The car has had body work. I see evidence that something happened with the trunk floor at some point, but i'm not sure what. Almost every panel has had paint. There is almost no rust, but the jacking points behind the front wheels are rusty. There is a slight vibration when braking - need to change the discs. There is something funky with the door locks - the alarm is working properly, so I haven't looked into the issue.

I don't see why it wouldn't pass a safety as it is

Given the body work on the car, I'm not sure what it's really worth. I wish the paint was nicer - it looks good from a distance, but when you get closer, you can see that it wasn't a great paint job.

Any ideas, guys?

There will be 275k when it comes up for sale. Leaving on a trip today with the car.

So i'm out to lunch thinking that it's still worth $4500?

I think it would be a hard sell, but you didnt mention if it was leather / sunroof or not, also cert and e-testing goes a long way, most people dont have a clue what they need to do.

Looks like I need a temporary car for the winter since my audi 90 HG leaks pressure in my coolant. Unfortunately I can only go to Europe to import a car in the spring

I have a friend that offered me a 2004 A4 1.8T avant 6 speed 160 000KM for $6000. Is that a good deal? How much can I expect to sell it for in the spring if I put 20K on it? $8000 ? Sorry for posting a non diesel but I am kinda clueless about kijiji prices.

Not an automobile, but parts instead. Want to know what this stuff is worth.

- 2009 Jetta Sportwagen TDI factory springs (70km)
- 2009 Jetta Sportwagen TDI Factory Shocks/struts (70km, no leaks, great shape)
- 2009 Jetta GLI spings (Can post paint codes if required)

Just buy a cheap 2001-up Civic and drive it until spring. Then sell it.

Tried that when my 90's fuel lines rusted. Worst experience of my life... and that says a lot considering my first car was a firebird. Everything broke on that damn civic.

It has a roof, no mags/leather. I honestly think that it doesn't need anything for safety - i've stayed on top of anything that's come up. It will pass an e-test - only glow plug faults (due to the trans swap)

The previous owner must have beat that car to hell. Civics are very robust cars. I had some that lasted into the 600K km with very little up keep.
