Seems a little high to me...I paid $14.4 for my GSW TDI w/74k on it two months ago from a dealer.

Was that an SEL though? Buyer here found an SEL with 6MT - when I was looking, that was a rare beast.

Yup, SEL with DAP and LP.

Brought her home. Had a 500 off referral! Now to decide if this is the one. Someone added helper bags in the rear. Wonder what the heck he was towing!? Felt awesome driving so far. Averaged 51 on way back and only 44 on way up with my 13 tdi day trade.

Decided it's going back. Way to many unknowns. I love the car. I love shifting gears again.. I just can't get over all the issues. Carvana really doesn't look over these cars.
1. Helper bags in rear coils and one doesn't hold air.
2. Hot wires routed to hatch! Really they couldn't disconnect it? I did myself and even fixed the stored code for the electrical system.
3. Rust from hitch and dings in the exhaust from it bottoming out!
4. Woke up to oil on my garage floor. Pretty sure my quarter turn of the oil plug fixed it.
5. Front underbelly plastic had 4 whole screws holding it in.
6. Shakes at highway speeds even after they "fixed" it before I would leave the vending machine.
7. Interior detail was a joke.
8. Scratches all over interior of hatch that couldn't be seen in the pictures.
9. Headlight have stress cracks or something on bottom front. Both sides.
10. I overpaid but if all these things were fine I definitely would have kept it.

Good luck. Did you get the car yet? I can give you my friends referral if you need it.

Good thing you were picky about it and got that long test drive time. Congrats on a lesson learned about stuff to keep an eye out for!

Ouch. I keep seeing this over and over again. Some Carvanan deliveries are fine, but it seems like a lot of them are not.

Wonder how long it takes for them to pick up the car and refund all your money.

Giving them another shot. I live 3 hours from KC so I just head to the vending machine. They were nice enough to extend my 7 day test drive 200 more miles since I'm swapping out for another tdi. This one is a 15 with 50k for 14,600. Ltv is better but an SE dsg with lighting package. Looks a lot better cared for but we shall see Saturday night!

There are a few nice S gsw that are showing up. I found a 17k one with a year bumper to bumper warranty left for a friend. It was under 16k. I didn't want him to buy the typical 40-50k ones as too many unknowns. Add to that a good set of leather gti seats for 300 and he avoids possible sunroof problems.

That’s too high. I found a 2015 Golf TDI SEL with 38k miles for $10,900 with the lighting package and parking sensors, but it’s a DSG and in Ohio.

Why do you say it's too high? The one in Ohio has more than double the miles on it and no B2B warranty. 16K is practically a new car and if I was still shopping I would jump on a car like that.

I don't think you can compare these cars price wise like other cars. For one thing, they are no longer manufactured for the US market and could be sought after in some areas by some people. When this happens blue book prices are not necessarily as accurate and those who are after a nice one will pay more for it.
