Not every car on GCFSB can be rare, obscure, or exotic. Sometimes there are just some out there that would make for a good everyday companion.
Case in point, this 2000 Volkswagen GTI VR6. Looking back in the way way back machine I purchase one of the first MKIV VR6 GTI’s in the area. I drove it right off the showroom floor and it stole my heart. Before things started breaking I loved the rev happy engine and gobs of torque. I have a couple friends that remember a spirited drive to the Oregon Coast and the GTI proved to be more than willing to provide many grins for all involved.
This example is not perfect but it is an exceptionally low mile example offered at no reserve.
From the seller –
“Here we have a very low mileage 2000 Volkswagen Golf GTI GLX VR-6 with only 51,000 Original Miles! This golf runs and drives out excellent. It came in a trade in MASS and that is how we got it. The car runs and drives like new. The motor starts right up each time and it sounds solid with lots of power and torque. The clutch is perfect and it grabs strong. The outside shows some paint peeling of in the rear bumper/hatch. There is also some hail damage on the front hood and roof. The inside is very clean and well kept. Everything works as it should. The car has CD player, heated seats, sun-roof, leather seats, cruise etc. The tires are very good, I will also include another 4 tires with the car. Over all a great running UNMOLESTED GTI VR6! We have a clean title. No check engine lights no warning lights no stories!”
Nice car, no reserve so it will go for nothing more than market. It will need some PDR and the front and rear bumpers repainted. Not sure why it is running on Nokian tires but if you are in a colder climate that is a nice selling point.
24 bids currently have it at $3.9k, I think at $5k this is a good value even with its faults. There are tons of MKIV GTI’s out there with 130k out there so this low mileage example is a nice find.
