This jetta had some rust issues in the rockers, door bottoms, and floors. Most rust areas were cut out and new metal welded in; this car is not a bucket of bondo, but it is also not a southern car... Surface rust is starting to re appear in spots on the doors, and the underneath is rusty as well. This is not a super clean shell. After all it has covered over 500k miles in the salt belt.
Extremely dependable (have done several 500 mile + trips with this car) well sorted out, Suspension is set up perfectly, the stance I was going for and no rubbing or issues out on the road and the correct dampening to not bounce your kidneys out. Makes a great daily driven car.
No emergency brake (e brake pawl froze on left rear caliper),Blower motor does not function on highest setting, driver door sags when opened, passenger side front window scraper in poor shape, rain rails re built with new seals but not the best looking. Sunroof seal is in poor shape. It's not a concours show car by any means, but looks and performs fantastic for what it is, and holds its own at the vw shows.
