friend's buying a 1999 Passat V6
« on: September 23, 2005, 03:14:01 PM »
it has 70,000 miles, green with beige leather, V6 engine, tiptronic, 16" Audi A6 alloy wheels, in fairly good condition.  It's selling for $10,000, slightly over Blue Book, but she will definately bargain down.  It's being sold in Lakewood.

What's a fair price?
Any problems or recalls to look for (I know there's a vacuum hose recall for V6s).  
Any other suggestions?

Recalls: Tie Rod, Lower Control Arms, Left Rear Wheel Well liner.  

The TB should be changed out soon.  My clutch went out at about that milage.  I would use Edmunds for pricing, I have seen most 99's selling for less that $8000 for private party, and just under $9000 for a dealer.  These are prices for the GLX. Get the VIN and run a CARFAX.

Alan,

If she wants a pre-purchase inspection done one it, let me know.  Mark and I would be happy to throw it up on the lift and take a good hard look at the car for her.
