In the early 2000's they had some transmissions issues though. both the auto's and 5 speeds. I'd still buy one now though, I tell people to just go buy a civic if they need a cheap car, hard to go wrong.

Hey guys, I'm thinking of selling my 2000 Jetta TDI, since I now have a dedicated work van the Jetta has just sat in the driveway for the last 4 months and I figure it's time it got a more deserving home. I'm not sure what to list it at and Iw anted to know what it's worth.

2000 Jetta TDI
167,000km
5Spd
Silver, minor driverside fender rust starting, otherwise body is clear of rust, has a few dents and scratches, I'd say nothing uncommon for almost 15years of use.
Timing belt was done at 143,000km
New Battery
5 all seasons (4 + 1 full size spare)
5 new winter tires (4 + 1 full size spare)
Full interior dynamat
Pioneer headunit
2 JL audio amps + sub + speakers
Also willing to certified and e-test, the cars needs nothing.

I set up the car as the ultimate Dailey driver. I'm happy to take the stereo out and use it in the next vehicle but I'm to sure what the car is really worth.

Fairly low mileage with some nice upgrades and seems to have maintenance taken care of. Post that on kijiji for 7k and his phone would be ringing fast.

I paid 5000 for mine with similar mileage but no tbelt done.

If it were 3 years newer maybe, no one is going to pay 7k for a 14 (almost 15 year old TDI) that's not a wagon. That's just insane.

Exactly. With it being a 2000, the rust will come soon then it will not be as pretty.

Wagon's keep their value, I could see that if it was a wagon but a sedan, no way jose!

A timing belt job only makes the car sell faster and doesn't increase its value.

05 Passat, minimal paint bubbling, 240K, timing belt done at 160K, full VW service record... what's it worth?

BSM done or not? That will make a big difference.

It only makes a difference to a gearhead. The average buyer don't know or cares about it, and that's 99% of the driver's out there.

Take care of the paint bubbling under the warranty and the car should worth about $5-5500, if safetied and eTested.

I can agree with the gearhead part, I forget there are 'other' people out there buying these cars

No BSM.

It has a bit more rust than bubbles. The VW rust warranty is a bit discouraging in this forum thread



imp000 is right on. I had a car for sale with a detailed ad that highlighted a lot of preventive maintenance, including a rebuilt transmission that is a known issue to gear heads. It had very little interest. I sold it within a day after I changed the ad to the typical "mint condition, no issues".
