Default 03 VW Jetta wagon GLS TDI - biodiesel 47mpg avg

I have a deposit on a civic hybrid - it's ready to be picked up - unfortunately, I haven't sold my TDI yet so, if anyone is looking for a second alternative fuel vehicle this is it! I run biodiesel in our wagon.

Here are some photos of our Jetta. If you would like me to email you high resolution photos, I can do so, just let me know which ones.

5-Speed Manual Transmission
1.9L Turbocharged Diesel I4 SOHC 8V FI Engine
62000 miles (just breaking in for a diesel)
Silver

Safety:
ABS, Disc Brakes (4 wheels)
Daytime Running Lights
Driver and Passenger Front Airbags
Front and Rear Head Airbags
Front Side Airbags
Anti-Theft Alarm System
Keyless Entry System
New Goodyear Assurance Triple-tread tires (great grip in rain!!!) 7k miles

Monsoon Premium Audio System AM/FM/Cassette/CD
Power Moonroof
Rear Window Defroster / wiper
15 Inch Alloy Wheels - full size spare never used

about having a clean car. Door jams are CLEAN, no dust in any crack in the
interior.

- Used biodiesel since second fill-up (B20-B50)
- Kept track of fuel consumption. average 47 mpg city/hwy - highest was 59.5 mpg!!
- Recalls taken care of (heated seat - did burn hole in drivers side -
replaced btm seat)
- New radio around 50k - dealer scratched the radio when fixing a dash
light. I made them put in a brand new factory monsoon - same as before)
- No accidents, No smoking
- Always garage kept
- Always used mild cleaners, none of that shinny armor all stuff, or anything smelly

Other notes:
Small stone Nick on rear drivers side door (see photo)

Nice car ... wish it were less expensive. (I know, the resale of TDIs inched up the last couple of years) I'm looking for a third TDI as my first was handed down to my daughter at 16, now in med school with the same car, my current is a 2003 Jetta GLS TDI sedan (paid $15,800 in Dec 2003 for a 1 year old Christmas trade-in) has about 90K and I'm planning to hand down to my 17 year old son ... so I'm kind of looking for a replacement. I'd love a wagon and sort of would like to upsize to a Passat TDI Wagon. (would miss the sporty handling of a 5 speed) Keep me posted if your asking price drops a bit.

Hello Rich,

I remember you from biodieselnow - or TDI club if I'm not mistaken. I am very negotiable right now, as my hybrid is actually at the dealership ready for delivery.

I have been getting a lot of interest from CA and new england green states. Compared to what people are asking out there this is a steal! But then they have to figure in flying out/driving and time.

Feel free to give me a call after 12 pm today. 734-765-9392
