Yes you can buy used but whether its' new or used it will need to be programmed to your Cab by a VW dealer or a very good European mechanic who has the right computers to do that. Personally I would get a second opinion from a good REPUTABLE European mechanic who specializes in VW

Take your VW to a shop that specializes in imports! Your local garage/gas station won't know how to fix it!! My Nephew learned that lesson the hard way with his '98 BMW 528i. HTH. -Jim
