Nice looking one owner Jetta manual popped up on local CL today. If it was a white Golf I would be all over this.

That is very clean. Even though the price is high, it should sell quickly.

But if it was a Golf I'd be interested as well, even though I already have two.

Does anyone around the St. Paul/MPls area have a 3 bar map they could loan me today. Stealer ships are closed so I can't get one to see if mines bad. I've got a sort of cross post in performance section on "new tune new map" if u want details.

It is with deep regret that I am letting go of my 2003 Red Beetle. She had a mishap with a deer about a week ago. Insurance is totaling the car out. I was going to buy back but we checked her out and there is too much frame damage in front and the body shop will not touch it. Goodbye Betty!

Buy back was only $320. With only 125k on the odometer.

Sorry I have been on vacation and did not see this sooner. Insurance had it picked up the next day anyway.
Copart.com has the car on their site. I just checked. It is Lot # 38232428 but it is not up for auction yet.

Default 2002 Jetta TDI - needs to go $1500 obo

7/6/18 new battery from Costco
Iím selling my 2002 Jetta TDI with 233k on it. Iím going to be very honest about my little baby. She still runs. Had an auto to manual swap in 2012. Current needs - rear drivers side brake caliper, exhaust repair which is throwing CEL, new tires, and potentially a flywheel problem but it could have been a bad starter out of the box. It hasnít left me stranded in over two months with this issue and still starts. Uses a bit of oil but nothing major. She was hit while parked by a metro transit bus a year ago so the drivers front quarter panel is banged up along with the typical fender rot on the drivers side. Headliner is starting to sag as well from the intelligent sunroof drainage. Had a new fuel injector pump installed in 2014. The clutch was new in 2012 as well. The headlights have been restored multiple times and back to hazy right now. I clay barred her last fall and sheís been in a garage ever since I bought her. The arm rest console is out of whack like many and the passenger side airbag cover is dinged up, the cup holder needs to be replaced and the middle air vents are not perfect due to some punks that just wanted to vandalize but not steal while I was parked at work. The front windshield is cracked. I can replace it under full glass coverage if you desire.

I was a smoker and she enjoyed many, many long road trips. Typical commute was 58 miles a day since 2006 when I bought her. If youíre not concerned about looks, my baby is meant for you. Iíve car shopped for 5 years and finally have come to the point that we need to part ways.
Oh one last flaw- the drivers seat cable is broken so sheís positioned for me to drive her.

I think I have pointed out all her flaws. Bar none the best damn car Iíve ever owned and the toughest love I have ever contemplated leaving.

She can be seen in Hopkins or Saint Paul. I will take any serious offer. Just want her to have a good home or her parts used for your dearly beloved.

I can email photos upon request.

How sad that your focus on life is to grieve for a mechanical device.

Itís so not a focus in my life but if youíve ever had a car that never let you down, then you may understand and we canít walk in each otherís shoes but only learn from the travels we each have taken. Everyone has a story.

Some of us get a little nostalgic. I would never say to anyone hey it was just a dog. Run your Passat for 16 years and see if you change your mind. Hell I just saw a Chevy citation at a car show last month and it made me feel warm and fuzzy.

I was crushed when my 02 Jetta I bought new melted #2 piston from a streaming injector after only 360k miles even though I already had its replacement, my 335d. I completely understand
