Is 240000 too many km for a 2001 Volkswagen Jetta to buy?


Asked by Dec 02, 2014 at 10:42 AM about the 2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T

Question type: General

I'm looking into buying a 2001
Volkswagen Jetta. It has 240000km
but I would only be driving it to
school and back and just around

Heated seats
4 New Tires
Remote start
New timing belt
New water pump
New struts and suspension tuneup
Limo tint back windows
Cruise control

Has all the above and it being sold
for $3500 OBO. I don't want to be
buying something that is going to be
breaking down on me or needing
work done all the time. Got a budget.
Thanks for your help, feel free to
recommend any other similar cars !

Based on your description of what you are looking for, I would definitely not recommend a European car. Even if it was well taken care of, they are not know for reliability and they're expensive when they do have problems. I would look for a good Asian import car that you have checked out to make sure the maintenance has been kept up with. (Find out if car has a timing belt and ask when it was changed)
