We purchased this car in November while working in Waitakere. We have a few VW's back in the states and know these Golfs inside and out, so we have kept very good care of it.

We have spent the last few months traveling in it, without any major issues, and it has been completely reliable, taking us as far south as Invercargill and now back to Auckland.

We are driving it from Wellington to Auckland over the next few days and the car will be available for viewing on Feb. 23rd. Any photos or requests for more info are welcome...feel free to contact us by phone or online! We want an informed and happy buyer.


Minor scrapes and rock chips, but nothing that any other 14 year old car doesn't have.

Averages 12km a litre.

Water pump, thermostat replaced at 180k, and the coolant system was flushed along with the radiator, and new coolant added. Running perfect now.

Great tread on all tyres. (rear two replaced recently)

Floor of the boot has been raised by a odified pallet, a nifty addition that allows sleeping in the back comfortably :).

Perfect car for travelers or for learners.

One downside if the rear windows don't work properly (one doesn't go down at all, and the other is hard to go back up)...gears likely need replacing but we didn't find it necessary...easy fix though.

Selling as we are moving back to the USA, back to our Golf that's waiting for us there :).

*** photos will be added tomorrow (18th) we have an iPad and it won't let us upload ***
