Please look at the photos as they are part of the description.
5 speed manual .. The 5th gear is overdrive.
Needs work.
Although it runs and drives. It will need to be towed away.
Parts car...?
This was my daily driver until August.Very dependable and economical.
I have owned it for 19 years.
It always got around 45 mpg.
It recently hit a pothole which damaged the left lower control arm. The arm has ripped off of the frame where it mounts. There's a photo showing the damaged. I drove it 10 miles home in this condition. The tire does not rub on frame but the steering is messed up now. Wheels are way out of alignment.
It is not safe to drive. It can be driven onto a ramp or hauler.
Another issue is the bolt that mounts the air conditioner has broken. This makes the pulley wobble and can make the belt come off (only happened once). I drove this way for 3 years.
The engine still runs fine.
The rings are still good. Does not leave globs a black soot on the rear. Head gasket was replaced in 2009.
Car has rust coming through ... see photos
The rear metal muffler hanger is rusted off. Battery tray has corrosion.
Has been re-painted 10 years ago after deer hit.
The grill assembly, caul & headlights are from a later model Jetta. Black plastic grill is zip tied in.
After a heavy rain there can be water on floor under the pedals. I professionally replaced the windshield gasket, but it still occurs depending on what angle it is parked. I believe it is gets in at the air vent between hood and windshield.Had a mouse under the dash two winters ago.
Every component works except for the AC.
The heat is very weak. Blows warm air not hot.
All the lights, switches, horn etc function.
Has passed state inspection every year.
Has a block heater for winter.
Tires have less than 10,000 miles ....
Wheels are 14 inch aluminum alloy.
Does not burn oil.
Glass is good all around. No cracks or chips.
Interior is above average for its age.
Entire exhaust replaced 4 years ago.
Alternator recently replaced.Windows are manual (crank) they both work.Locks are manual.
Car is 35 years old and is far from perfect.
I consider this to be a parts vehicle at this point due to damage & rust.
It is unsafe to drive in its current condition.
