I am presenting to you a fine example of a 2000 Volkswagen GTI GLX for sale to make room for a new 2+2.

Current Specs:
- 121K Miles - 60% of that on the highway..
- ~50K miles on transmission, 5 sp manual
- VR6, all leather, sunroof
- Futura Yellow - rare colour
- A/C works great
- All original, no mods
- Always dealer serviced except one instance (see below). All service records available (if you REALLY want to dig through 10 years of maintenance records, that would be an interesting read)
- Tires probably close to 80%
- No major dings, or dents. No rust at all

Condition:
For a 10 year old car with 120K miles on it, I would consider it fair. Some things would need to be repaired to make it a reliable daily driver. Not to say it hadn't been reliable, but the age of wearables are showing now.

The bad:
- Needs new radiator
- Needs new head gasket
- Headliner should be replaced
- Body has some scuffs as any 10 year old car which has to live around other inconsiderate parkers. Still looks good with a proper shine
- One tire should probably be patched, has just a slow leak
- Engine undercarriage covers missing

The good:
- Engine runs strong, dealer recommended service always done timely. (Including oil changes every 3K-5K miles)
- Original transmission was busted when the local tire shop attempted to put it on a lift. It was replaced with a Jetta GTI transmo with an original 42K miles at the time. Probably has close to 50K miles on it now.
- Clutch in good condition
- No tears in leather, although worn as would be expected
- Never tracked! :)

It has always been great fun to drive and always been reliable for me. It never left me stranded.. No knocks, pings or anything else funny..

$5,000 obo
