Default I never thought I'd do it, but here goes... 2005 Passat TDI GLS Wagon FS! - MN

As the post says... I never thought I'd part with a member of the family, but the time has come. My beautiful bride wants power sliding doors and a rear DVD player for the kids.

So I've been trying to hold out until a minivan that is worthwhile comes available (something with a TDI or...?)

So on to the Passat!

I bought it new at West Side VW in St. Louis Park, MN and it has been serviced there every 5000 miles.

The steel glow plugs are in...

The Balance Shaft has been replaced with gears...

It's got new Bridgestone tires and the 5-spoke GLX rims (the best looking wheels out there on a B5.5 IMHO)

Tinted Windows

It's a GLS - so it's got the sunroof, fog lights, heated seats, ESP, and a 12V power outlet in the rear cargo area!

It has the EURO Hitch on it with a 7-pin wiring harness for trailer towing! I did pull a pop-up camper with the VW for 2 summers and it does a fantastic job of towing. There also is Air-Lift airbags in the rear coils to keep the suspension level.

I have added a leather wrapped steering wheel and the leather wrapped shift knob - to make it that much more luxury!

It has 45K miles on it and has LOTS of life left in it. The reason for low miles, is we have 4 cars and 2 drivers. The VW is our "family" car that we use mostly on the weekends and for things like that.

I checked with KBB and it's got a private party value of $17,910. If I were to sell it for less I would be better off trading it in on a minivan due to the tax savings with doing a trade in.

If you want all the extra goodies that this car has I am going to price it at $18,500.

And for a few photos!!







I will get more photos (without the camper...) soon. It's too dark out now.

Thanks!

Located in Minneapolis, MN (added - this is the reason for the edit)

Forgot to mention... when the BS mod was done - it also got a new timing belt, tensioners, water pump, etc... And that was done recently!

I agree about the rims. Took me forever to find a set of the Vancouvers.

Good luck with the sale

You and me both. Next time we meet, we can take turns kicking each other. I'll go first.

I hope you get the $17k+. And if you turn down a low-ball offer at $16.5k give them my name. Mines already leather with "wood".

Does it have the leather seats? And is it an auto or manual? Thanks

All the B5.5 TDI for North America were automatics, with a semi-manual "tiptronic" mode.
The O.P. added a leather wheel and shift knob, which would have been already installed as part of the leather seats package.

It is LeatherETTE So the shifter and steering wheel were plastic. I put the leather on them.

The Leatherette is much more durable than the real leather and still looks like new.

It's a 5-speed automatic - with the tiptronic shifter.

All these photos were taken quickly today with my iPhone. They are not that great of quality, and the car has not been cleaned or washed at all.

There are a few scuffs in the rear bumper and there is a scratch on the passenger front door. The scratch can be wet sanded or buffed out, I have not taken the time to do so yet.

Did I mention that the car comes with the Air-lift airbags and the EURO hitch? it does!

The wheels on the car in this photo are my winter snow tires and are NOT included with the car. The like new Bridgestone tires and the 5-spoke GLX wheels ARE included with the car. If you want the snow tires and rims - they can be sold with the car if desired.
