    A friend bought my Jetta and was going to junk this pile, so I took a few quarters off of the purchase price and took it on trade. It's quite the pile.

    I was just going to share my wife's car till my civic will be done (probably around a month) so if this thing lasts me a month, I'll be happy.


    A PO put some big Audi brakes on it, so it actually stops really well. That's about all it does well. A 16v in a car this size = a serious dog. It's so slow.


    It also has a shake if you go over 45 that can only be described as terrifying. Something is seriously wrong with the front drivers side suspension. I might take a look at it one of these days, but I enjoy living dangerously


    If you want to buy it lmk. I won't want much

    I'm really scared to drive over 45 in it. I'm trying to see if I can drop it off at teds before I go on vacation so he can make it less shitty....

    4x100, chasis has 195k, she's just getting broken in :)

    It's starting to grow on me, I have to say. Picking up some snowflakes w/ snows this weekend. Hoping they clear the brakes

    If you want the mille's on the car, $200 with tires. Lmk. They're 16s

    Is it more of a light jog than a run?

    I'd describe my wagon as having "adequate" power. It also gets about 20 MPGs. Its pretty sad.
