    Got it like this, pic at grandparents
    MyJetta_94b441fa3017a9241e42e57228627a615c307a1f.jpg

    Change oil, K&N air filter, oil filter, vacuum, etc. Got it for under half of KBB value.

    Flexing Pics, parked in my driveway... Did not know it was flexed out until this morning (still has swaybar on and rear suspension is a trailing beam so it sucks for articulation)

    Story as to why I had to get this
    Dad informed me a front wheel drive is safer than a 4wd truck and threatened to take my college money away... Could any one explain how a fwd small sedan is safer than a truck?

    lol yep, vision checks. Want to buy a Tacoma, but now I will have to keep it for 2.5 months to drive to UAA then sell it before I go to the Philippines. Buying a Taco when I get back. Only reason I bought was dad threatened to take all my money away if I bought a truck... :confused: :mad:

    Nothing mechanically, just front wheel drive in Alaska... And I love to 4wd and be self reliant, (I get stuck a lot at my job, a little ski resort.

    Hills, snow, ice, (they don't salt roads here, lucky if plowed or graveled) for 5 months here, just not my thing. I fit in the driver's seat only, head hits in the passenger seat... 6'4" I just want a truck, don't mess with my excuses. ;)
