I’m selling because I have several cars and I just got a work truck. This has been my daily driver for the last 5 years. I’m not sure how many cars are this fun for this kind of price, except for maybe a Miata, which I already have one of.

This car runs like a top. It has a clean title and I have the lien release. These engines have a timing chain, not a belt. They do not have cam follower problems like the FSI engines had. This one does not burn oil between changes. Transmission shifts are buttery smooth. It rides just like it looks like it would, but it handles the corners wonderfully. I have a new driver side door lock switch but never put it in. Sometimes the switch is finicky and you have to push it pretty hard, but it’s been good lately. Aside from that, everything works flawlessly. I have one key with a fob and one backup valet key. I have tons of stock parts that will be included in the sale.

Have you tried taking it to Northtown for the rust? VW warranty is 12 years, unlimited miles. Just before I sold my CC Northtown put on 2 new front fenders and a new trunk lid then basically repainted half the car by the time they blended it. Really helped me get top dollar for it when I sold it since the car looked brand new after all the body work.

If you’re going to try definitely go to Northtown, as another VW dealer in the area gave me a hard time and looked for any reason to deny the claim. “This small section of hood looks like it was resprayed at some point, so we can’t warranty any of this rust that’s no where near the spray.” Never mind that it was obvious looking at it that the fender rusted out from the inside and that’s because VW stuck foam there from the factory that holds salt right against the inside of the fender. Meanwhile Northtown looked at for 30 seconds and was like, “Oh, it’s covered, they all rust right there, we’ll get it submitted today”. In fact when I brought it in I only saw the drivers side and trunk lid rust. It was the Northtown guy that looked really close at the passenger fender and pointed out the tiniest bubble starting to form and said he’d do that fender too since if he didn’t I’d just be back in a couple months. It did take a month or so for VW corp to approve it and move all the paperwork through.
