    1989 mk2 200k miles for $1,500 buy or pass?

    $1,500
    1989 mk2 16v white
    200k miles
    16v according to previous owner rebuilt at around 100k
    Ac compressor went out
    Rack and pinion leaks
    Passed smog and registered until next year
    Synthetic oil

    How reliable would this car be?
    How much money would I be putting into it?
    How much more life could I expect from it?
    What else should I ask before I go check it out?

    First post (and n00b) but I really want a gti and I found this one for cheap. Hopefully some of you could help me out!
    Thank you very much, zomga

    16v are rare.... that's a good buy if you're willing to keep paying $ for maintenance and stuff.

    you could get a decent one for like 300-700 bucks....

    rebuild....back to stock probly looking around same cost, more towards the 700 range.

    Pass, too much for a car with 200k on it.

    Why are you bumping a thread that was posted over a year ago? I'm pretty sure that car has come and gone.
