Dude no offense but the reason you aren't getting any interest is because you're price is a little... too hopeful. Especially with that laundry list of things the car "might" need. The very visual body imperfections don't help your cause any either.

Tbh, I bought two mkII's for less than that (combined), and both were in as good if not better condition.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, I'm just trying to help you make sense of this.

you beat me to it. I thought I was going to be that bearer.

the body is damaged and those parts are really hard to find.....especially a bumper in good shape...and a fender? lots of body damage, dents, rear quarter is completely rotted through

Interior is really dirty, the car is missing a lot of original pieces that are hard to find like the radio, and the moldings, the center console lid, the rear hatch cover is faded badly, the timing covers, grill, rear driver mudflap, windshield washer bucket is missing?

and the clutch is going?

I dunno about you, but I'm a do-it-yourself-er, and for the price I am discouraged with how much work I would have to put in to get it in shape.

dont get pissed, were trying to help, your going to have to fix it or adjust your price accordingly...

I sold that jetta about 2 months ago and ive been driving this around. this honestly was going to be my track car and ive been dailying it now for 2 months non stop. its a great car and all but i wont have the 1000 bucks to dump into it to to make it perfect besides the body. im interested in getting another jetta but in stick this time around and a good friend is selling me his for 3000 as a good friend discount so i really cant pass it up. i know its a little pricy but i was hoping to at least get 1500 for it. if i ask what i want il never get it... perks of being a salesman. but if i cant sell it localy either im going to start fixing things starting off with the breaks and suspension. i have no need for this car in the winter. and the interior actually is in pretty clean shape besides the 2 tone carpet. i have pics of when i bought the car and i was apauled by how the previous owner kept the car and treated it. there were nasty pin stripes all over it and the interior looked like a combine went through it. as far as a radio goes tough shit on that cous it was all hacked when i bought it so i threw my alpine in there and it has some rockford fosgates in the front and some walmart speakers in the back. regardless im open to offers but its a damn good runing car and if it wasnt id at least sell it for what i bought it for.

well if this supposed to be your track car why u sold the jetta?

yeah dude is way tooo much for the car, seriously i bought one for $350 (bad engine) , free rust , im rebuilding the engine, and i already spent $1000 (machine shop + gasket + new oil pump ) on the engine by itself, new clutch ($120) and that make less that what r u asking for...

just my 2 cents....

i do agree that the car isnt worth 2k, but i hate it when guys say that they got their car for $50, 150, 275 etc and that its less than what the seller is asking for in better shape. YOU GOT A STEAL OF A DEAL IN THAT CASE. that doesnt mean thats the actual value of these cars.

fyi, im not pointing out anybody, just wanted to get that point across to everyone..


good luck with the sale

the problems you listed arent TOO big a deal, its just that a $2000 car should have a straight body, imo. good luck with the sale though.

well i sold the jetta cous i was 4800 upside down on it and it was starting to show its expected auto trans problems which woulda cost me 2200 bucks just to fix and its a sealed trans so i couldnt be sure as to what was wrong with it. if it ever blew then it would be 4500 to replace it with a new one cous the used ones that are sold have the same problems as mine did. i agree the car isnt the best bodily shape but the underside is amazing for a midwest car and it hurts to say the previous owner was either drunk or high when he drove the car so thats why it looks the way it does now. ive been proding here and there snading priming and filling a few rough spots and im going to detail it too to try and get the shine back.
