The Good
  • Only 1 passenger 95% of the time so leather seats are in great shape.
  • Suspension (struts, shocks, mounts) replaced in October, along with front sway bar links.
  • Control arm bushings upgraded in the summer. Steering is much tighter with those, no tracking left to right in highway ruts.
  • Body is in good shape, some small rock chips here and there as to be expected. 1 small door ding, but no dent just a clear coat scuff I plan to buff out. I park away from the crowd usually.
  • Other parts that I've replaced or upgraded in the past couple years are the emergency brake cables, and front wheel bearings/hub assemblies.
  • I just dealer supplied parts for most of my repairs, exception was there struts and shocks that came from Rock Auto (Bilstein for an A3 Sport), and I don't let noises and issues go without fixing them typically (see exception below due to broken shoulder).
  • Only upgrades I had left on my list to do before deciding I was going to move on is a DPF delete (~$500 from BuzzKen and a small fee to change the tune) and a replica VW logo flip camera from AliExpress (~$135) that plugs right into the RCD330 headunit.
  • Airbag recall is being completed in the next couple of weeks, once VW locally gets the part in.
  • TDI "fix" was done, though those parts would be replaced with a DPF delete if I weren't going to part ways.

The Bad

Nothing to be honest. The car fires up in the morning, drives me to work, to the hiking trail, and home.

The Ugly
  • 2 of the all season tires have extra wear on one edge. I broke my shoulder after I did the control arm bushings, and it took a couple months to get at the struts and shocks. In that time the inside edges wore a bit more. Going to have them rotated to be on the outside so that noise isn't an issue.
  • There is a scratch on the glovebox from the previous owner (I picked this up from Montreal in 2015 and drove it home). Hoping to find one at the junk yard if a MK6 eventually makes it there.
  • One of the foglights gets seems to get fogged up, think the seal is bad. Was going to replace but I don't use them.

Overall, it's been a great car. I had a MK4 Jetta for quite a while before this and it is quite the upgrade. I'm looking at moving to an AWD wagon for the extra space in the boot.

Most important question will be - how much are you asking?

Given the distance, you're likely better off to sell it locally
2015 Passat TDi 6 spd, 2008 WK CRD, 1991 405 mi16, 1992 300D, 1986 and 1987 190e 2.3-16, and a couple 2 wheeled things
