Default 2015 golf 6spd

Looking at a 2015 golf tdi 6 speed with 77k. Any items to pay particular attention to? It's a silver sel with the lighting package. Trading my 13 tdi Jetta dsg with 72k. Really just wanting a little better fuel economy and to shift gears again. Thanks for all the help.

Ad says an SE. If itís an SE the price seems a bit high to me for my area, if itís an SEL price might be a bit better.

See what kind of maintenance stuff was recently done to it if any. Check for roof leaks by the pano roof, I hear thatís common, or semi common. Make sure it has the screw in pull hook for towing. Mine didnít and I had to go back. If it has the cargo mat in the back make sure it comes with the plastic ďLĒ shaped Velcro storage things. Mine didnít and the dealer gave em to me for free later.

At 77k it would be due for a fuel filter in another 3k.

Thatís just the stuff I can think of off the top of my head tbh. Others will add more or correct me.

Ohh one more thing, see if they can get you the MFI to lightning adaptor so you can use the built in ďusbĒ but for VW propriety plug. Mine didnít come with one and they wouldnít give me one at my dealer but maybe youíll get lucky lol. Even if you donít use it get your moneys worth lol.

Thanks. It's an sel. Vindecoder and Carfax say so. Carfax shoes no maintenance but I'm just guessing either he did himself or the place he took it didn't report. I have 7 days to test drive lol. Also only had phase one fix done so far at 15k.

Yeah with where you appear to be located, for sure check for leaking. Maybe even steer clear of a pano roof car tbh. Lots of people not a fan on them for leaking.

That being said, I have no issues with mine and j live in a monsoonal kinda area in So Cal.

Ohh and make sure itís got the fender audio system. Itís a pretty good set up in my opinion.

That price is quite high given the mileage. Here's a similar car in the same market with only 28K miles at almost the same price https://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/cto...987981442.html (no affil.)
Earlier this year I paid $12.5K for my 2015 TDI with 53K miles, and that came with a CPO warranty.

Yeah to be honest they is more than j paid for my car. 2015 GSW SE DSG though. But I have the fender audio, pano roof and mine at the time was 56k miles and I got mine in January. Paid like 16-16.5k for mine if memory serves. Might have been less.

glad to see dealers are asking so much.

remember if you want it cheaper wave 12-14K in cash in front of them and see if they bite.

Otherwise keep looking and don't be shy of looking a few 100 to a few thousand miles away.

Wasn't there someone on here selling his SEL for like $15K?

At least a couple:

(Not sure if they're equipped with 6MT, but at least you can see what a reasonable price / mileage might be.)

Keep in mind overpaying is also relative. If itís really what you want and the slight price high is do able, you have already justified it in your mind honestly.

Not to mention differences in regional pricing as well as specific options for pricing relative to your location as well. What we say is overpriced might be bang on in your local area.

I am waiting on a red 2015 Gold Sportwagen S TDI manual, 25,060 miles and committed to buy at $17K. Chose this because there is no sunroof.
BTW and FWIW, same Carvana company, but that is a lot of money for >77K miles.

After reading all the sunroof horror stories I'm now worried. Guess a drive through car wash will be part of my test drive haha.

The pano roof in the GSW is where I've seen most people report leaks on here. I'm not sure I've seen any Golfs (at least not many) leaking. Mine with 85k does not leak and I almost always have it open, so it gets a lot of use. The lighting package, fender audio, and SEL seats are worth every penny!!
