There have been quite a few FS threads recently for people selling cars. While there is a specific section of the forum for selling cars, an item as large as a car really should be in a regional FS add.

So I have created this thread for users to post their cars for sale. I ask that you post all the relevant info and pictures in your post here and all correspondance can be conducted through PM's.

Or, simply post in the correct section and link your add in this thread for local viewers to peruse. This thread will be a sticky for better exposure and I will keep an eye on this thread and clean up any unecessary posts and delete any cars that are sold at the request of the seller.

Any further suggestions on how to handle this thread are welcome, but please do so via PM to keep this thread as clean as possible.

Thanks and good luck with your sales.

Thread clean up of OLD, SOLD and irrelevant posts.

If yours was one that I deleted and is still for sale, please feel free to re-post, but anything older than a couple months or has a dead link has been removed.

Thanks.

Too many.
We have a 2010 A3 TDI in the family. My daughter has been driving it for the last 2 years. It rarely goes far enough to bother keeping a TDI for her. In fact I had to train her to do a highway run once a tank to burn off the DPF. Looking to trade for either an A3 gasser or Golf. Must be automatic.

Your price is on par with the market, as ridiculous as that sounds... GLWS, very clean wagon

Oh yeah - meant to mention that. Only 200K km, body in good shape, tasteful/useful mods....$7K is entirely reasonable.

Gotta love inflation coupled with a crazy car market... by the way, @McGuillicuddy, sold in a day? that's impressive, but I can't say i'm surprised... I had most of my parts from my 02 part out fly off the shelf within 2 weeks, I was baffled there was such demand

I am the happy new owner of Mcguillicuddy's car. Great shape and all the right mods. No complaints about paying the post-pandemic premium for such a great example. I've been out of the tdi game for a few years now - looks like I'll be a bit more active on these forums again.

Congrats! I think you got a great car.
The reason I'd asked above about the time since TB was that the general consensus is that you generally don't want to go much more than 7yrs or so on a TB. And given the low mileage on the car (barely 200K km on a 20yr old car?!), I'm guessing it's been a while since the TB was done, even if was only 110K km ago.
If I'd bought it, I'd probably be planning on a new TB somewhere in the next year or so.

I looked at the timing belt and it still looks like new, much to my surprise. No dryness or cracking whatsoever, all the teeth in great shape, etc. I'll likely let it go for a while and continue to monitor it at every oil change (10k). If any noise starts from the tensioner or idlers then I'll definitely change it up. I told Mcguilicuddy the first timing belt I ever did was on my (at the time) uncles 2002 Acura TL type S. That was in 2006. My grandmother now owns that car, 250k later, and still on that same belt, and it still looks like the day I put it on. Quality parts FTW

Timing belts rarely break. Failure is usually a bad bearing in the tensioner or a roller, or a leaking or seized water pump. I think 10 years is a good time frame to follow.

As I showed ss04vv when he picked it up, the timing belt was done in late 2014. So we're 7.5 years in. Everything looks brand new in there and sounds like a dream. I would have no issue leaving it for another year while keeping an eye/ear on it (as was my plan before deciding to sell). It has truly been a fantastic vehicle for us but it was time to move on and I'm loving my Alltrack (and I even like the DSG after 30 years of strictly manuals!). Glad to see the old wagon go to a TDI enthusiast who will appreciate it.
