Ok, newbie here also - at least to the TDI club. I have been driving VW's since my mom passed down her Rabbit to me in '85. Drove VW Westies so I know what its like to pay for parts and maintenance. Currently own a 2002 Golf TDI and it rocks! Though looking to get a wagon for more room - the family thing. Anyhow, just wanted to add that I read the initial post and found it somewhat informative though a bit cynical at times. I suppose it likely gets tiring to have folks who don't really know cars try to convince people in the know that they know better. I'm street wise enough to know that I am going to stick with changing my oil, bulbs, swapping tires, etc and looking friends with the smarts to actually do real work than to pretend otherwise. Thanks for the post and the heads up. sound like I better watch my step...

Any help in any area for a newbie on selling a 2009 Jetta Sportwagen TDI with 6000 miles would be greatly appreciated. I need help (I have read the article by DarkScout and it was a hugh help. I would like to see some ads on eBay, if anybody knows of some god ads, other places to sell cars like Carmax and others. On short, I need all the help I can get. I even need a camera so suggestions there would be a help. any paperwork from the DMV to have ahead of time, or if the Title is in my name, what I would need. I do not even have a camera so a good reference would be a big help.

also, places to think about placing the ad, things I should do to the car before I have people start looking at the car. I have thought of eBay, but I would like to look at some other online car dealerships like Carmax. Any suggestions in all the areas so I could be as prepared as possibel would be helpful.

Default luck of the draw

Was searching high and low for the coveted TDI but was concerned about high mileage and high price range then the 2.0 l mk 3 **** the bed so now I was in dire need of a car I had been searching all over eBay Craigslist even had updates posting to my phone and mechanic so I find a sweet deal in new Hampshire and was set to leave on a friday. My wifey says let's do lunch at this joint in pa and were driving down rt 33 and I whip my head over to see a stunning reflex silver TDI getting stripped of it tags so we Damn near jumped the guard rail I ran up to the guy and yelled sold he looked and laughed and said we just got this right now the original owner was still there wow I can't believe my luck so Ii jump in too take a look at the car and it was in mint condition and loaded to boot I started the car and saw the odometer read 18,910 and it was a 2001 mk 4 TDI and this was early 2010 could this be true it sure was and I bought that sucker on the spot completely in love with this car I had 1 small overboosting issue due to clogged turbo vanes easy fix though just goes to show that if u have patients and r willing to hold out you might just find the deal of a lifetime I did !!! Ps I am now adding some power and am loving every minute of it

I'm not sure who I go to on this but I posted an 05 Passat for sale a few weeks ago and it appears that it was removed. Did I do something wrong that it was removed? Jim
