I did not want to do this so last minute but my buyer fell through. I have exactly 8 days left of service in the Army and on April 25th, after receiving my honorable discharge, I will be hitting the road in my freshly TDI swapped Eurovan. The jetta was supposed to be sold this weekend but now its on the market again. Ideally this sale would go through on monday or tuesday. I'm asking 4800 OBO. Its a 2001 silver Jetta GLS TDI with 223k on the clock and 5 speed manual transmission. Black leather interior with every option available including heated seats. I bought this vehicle in march of 2013 with 186,000 miles. The fellow I bought it from has been a TDI guy for awhile and had quite a few in the family which he did the maintenance on himself.

Known issues: glove box handle broke (can still open it), climate control back lights went out, headliner a little saggy in the back, paint is not perfect, will need tires before next winter.
Mechanically this vehicle is as solid as a 223k TDI gets. with all the suspension work i just did, this thing will be solid for the next 200k. I have put 23k on it since the upper engine work without a single hiccup or anything. Does not eat oil. I suspect it might have a tune on it just because its much peppier than other stock TDIs i have driven but I cant verify that.
Clean title. no wrecks. she looks a little dirty in the pics (which she is) but she cleans up very nice. I just dont have the time to get it detailed before doing all this. she needs to go and I need gas money for my trip! Thank you for looking. First come first served; cash in hand talks!
