All right then. I just signed up because I was getting frustrated trying to figure out a reasonable asking price for our two TDI's. One is a blue 2001 Golf with 166,000 miles. Solid car but has some cosmetic blemishes. Last fill-up I got 52.9 mpg. Wife's car is in super shape and is a green 2004 Beetle which gets about 45-47 mpg and has 55,000. This car was purchased last August from a Volvo dealership. We are moving to Kuwait in August for two years and so need to sell. I'm simply looking for ballpark asking prices. Any help?

And yes, I read it.

take a look on Craigslist and see if you can find one similar in mileage to yours. for your 2001 golf, (based on the two months I spent searching for one), if it is a GL, then your looking at 6500-7500, if its a GLS, b/w 7500-8500
- this is only based on my searching, I put into consideration the mileage and the cosmetic condition. You should put into consideration if you have maintenance records, along with the color of the car, and accident history and so on.
As for the beetle... I honestly hate it with a passion, so I will not comment further.

ask around some more, maybe start a thread, or just do some searching and see if you can gauge a price based on that.

Make sure you've read the guide, its great!

Default suggestions for postings and moderator....

If you are looking to buy or sell.... put the area where you live(city,state, nearest large city) in the title...

moderators....after the person that started the thread posts that they sold the car, found a car they wanted, or changed their mind....could the thread be deleted?

thanks

Default Thanks for this information!

I am a newbie too and read it and I say thanks for writing it because I'm about to sell my 2003 TDI Jetta Wagon with 116,000 miles and I want to sell it on a respectable site. I have photos and I have the maintenance records and I look forward to posting all of this information within the next 3-4 weeks. If any of you have questions on it in the meantime, feel fre to PM me. Sincerely, Nancy G

I'm a newbie and I did read this. BTW, when can I drop the Newbie title? I bought a car on this site 2 years ago and have read hundreds of posts!

reading posts changes nothing, making posts does... IIRC the newbie title gets dropped after 25 posts... shouldn't take 2 years!

Default vermont tdi imports?

i am considering selling my 04 jetta wagon tdi. posted to my local craigslist yesterday (i'm in FL) and had offer from a guy in VT... his e-mail tag line said "VERMONT TDI IMPORTS". he said he'd do a drive and fly.

i'm a tad sceptical of craig's list fraud so i thought i'd check here to see if anyone has had dealing's with him- good, bad, or indifferent?


BTW, i'll post my for sale feeler here too.

thanks-

well i did join to find a TDI wagon (i had to decide on the rare one) to buy and posted a WTB thread as my first post. thankfully though i feel i was relatively realistic when it came to describing what i'm looking for. this post though is pretty good with some good info thanks.

Default if you write it n00bs will come...

Thanks for the write-up darkscout! To most people, including myself, these things are common sense, but its good to be reminded from time to time. I'll refer back to this as a checklist frequently while I'm shopping around! Looking for a Golf GL TDi 5spd. Hopefully there are some left for me
