Default 2000 Jetta TDI for $1,500

yep, you read that right; saw this on a motorcycle forum and told the owner I'd put it up here for him as it's too far for me to get worked on.


*no affiliation, yada, yada. Just trying to pass on what could be a good deal
**dying auto tranny; who wants to do a 5 speed swap?

Here's from his post:
This 2000 diesel Jetta has 140,000 miles. It has an automatic transmission that is about to fail. If you drive it you will not feel it, but trust me , it is about to go. I had a new trans under warranty with 50,000 miles and then paid $2,500 for a new one at 100,000 miles. Now it has 140,000 and makes a noise every once in a while that is the death rumble. It still gets 40 mpg around town and 50mpg on the highway. The body is in good shape except for a dent over the drivers side rear wheel well. It is blue in color a with sunroof and aluminum vw wheels. The interior tan cloth upholstery is well worn. If you are not a mechanic, this is not the car for you. These transmissions are expensive........ The good...... 40 mpg's. The bad..... trunk will not open with the key, you have to fold down the rear seats to use the trunk. The drivers door will not open with the key, so you cannot lock the car. Check engine light is on, code is for glow plug relay, changed it ....light stays on. (Never has trouble starting glow plugs work fine). Airbag light on. Brake pad lining light on, I put pads on that dont have the sensor. I will take $1,500, no less. Will trade, street legal dirt bike, 4 wheel drive quad etc. The car is currently in storage in Bayonne, NJ.
-------------------------

You can reach the owner, Jim via email at nypdscuba AT gmail.com

He did send me pictures and the body looks decent; interior is very dirty and there is a pretty good dent in the rear c pillar area, behind the rear door.All the problems sound solvable. Oh yeah, it's a dark blue with the light tan interior.

Any chance of getting pictures? Why would he go through 2 transmissions so soon? Think that it is not the transmission?

email him, he has pictures. I'm not where I can post.

Yes, sounds like it was a rebuilt 01M from a shop or something, and it had to be warrantied. Those trannys are bad news. Only one that lasts is the factory rebuilt, and they seem to go out 80-120Kish.

I seen it....Car is real rough....interior is very bad....1/4 needs work....besides trans....abs, srs, check engine had 5 codes....there are def turbo issues ....car smokes very bad...I feel is parts only. Tires are almost bald... I would of bought it for 1500 if the engine was 100%....hes also not flexible on the price either...it's worth it if someone needs a block....but he should be lil negotiable ...I was surprised

I"ve called a while back and left a message.....never got a call back...thought I'd buy this for parts...probably not a good person to deal with anyways.

ah, didn't hear about the smoke, well, buyer beware - does still sound like a deal for a parts car or a home mechanic or shop with a parts car around.

you get for you paid for. So if you are getting TDI for $1,500, don't expect to get a new car.
