Mk 2 GTX on Craigslist
« on: Sep 28, 17, 16:03 »
From the pictures and basic description it looks pretty clean and unmolested. Does anybody have any insight into this car?

Yes, I went to look at it. The car was ok, but nowhere near as clean as it looked in the photos.

The seats were in good shape and the car drove decent enough but the trunk lid was literally falling apart from rust, which would have been an easy enough fix but the cancer was on the inside of the trunk area where the seal presses onto. The left rear quarter had rust also.

The odometer was broken, power mirrors didn't work, and there was clear coat peeling everywhere as well as the black vinyl in between the windows.

A lot of the engine was covered in oil mist; throttle body area, intake boots, valve cover, transmission area..

Oh and the rear most muffler rotted off.

It's probably worth the price to someone, but it was a hard pass for me. I have to mention that the owner was a real nice guy, just not VW savvy.

Thanks.  I have a red one just like it  although from what I read above is in much much better shape that I bought from  this forum in 2011.
