2006 Volkswagen Vw Jetta Tdi Diesel 5spd on 2040-cars

Year:2006 Mileage:258764

Friendsville, Tennessee, United States

Friendsville, Tennessee, United States

This vehicle is a very clean car with 258,XXX miles and typical wear for that mileage.  A few scratches and dings but nothing major.  It does have a power draw related to the radio but only when the radio fuse is plugged in.  Please do your research on this issue - we have not had it repaired, just driven it without the radio fuse in.  Otherwise, it dies if not started every other day or so.  Besides that, it is a very dependable vehicle that starts on the coldest days and gets 38+ mpg of diesel.  It's been a daily driver since we bought it two years (and almost 20,000 miles) ago and has had several upgrades and all the regular service, including the following:

  • Upgraded with Sachs solid fly wheel and clutch kit (good to approx. 300 foot pounds of torque!)
  • Serviced transmission with synthetic Mobil1 fluids at the time of clutch upgrade
  • Bora brand cam lifters, bearings and valve cover gasket
  • New timing belt, water pump
  • New serpentine belt
  • EGR delete, which causes check engine light to remain on
  • New boost control valve (Bora)
  • New 18" tires (only 10k miles on them) on VW factory rims
  • New rear brakes and rotors (Mintex brand); wasn't ready for Front pads, but those come with the car for when they're needed
  • Turbo was replaced with low-mileage, 60,000-mile turbo due to bad actuator
  • New battery
  • All oil changes done with Total 505.01 synthetic oil and Mann filters
  • New fuel lift pump (from dealer)
  • Comes with three keys, owners manual, original window sticker


  • Diesel
  • Heated front seats
  • Cold weather package
  • Sunroof
  • Power windows and locks
  • Power drivers seat
  • Manual 5-spd transmission
  • CD player
  • Cold air / Hot heat
  • Cruise control
  • Airbags

Bought this car as a project and have really enjoyed it.  We do have a loan on the car and will use funds from the sale to pay off the loan, after which we will be able to forward the title to the purchaser.  We'd be happy to share the bank's contact info with the buyer to arrange the transaction.  Feel free to ask questions if we've left anything out.  Thanks!

Lamborghini and Bentley may hold off on SUVs so VW can conserve cash

Thu, 11 Oct 2012

After surveying the European economic scene, Volkswagen may have decided now is not the time to launch utility vehicles with Bentley and Lamborghini badges. Bentley officials say they will continue to push for support for the EXP 9 F and Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelman has said planning for the Urus will continue until VW tells it to stop.
That decision could come on November 23, when VW's board will vote on the company's budget for equipment, factories and vehicles. With VW's sales slowing and the Euro economy slumping further, some industry watchers say the company is more likely to build its cash reserves than to introduce super-expensive luxury SUVs or crossovers.
"Such vehicles are anything but obligatory during a crisis," says Frankfurt-based Equinet AG analyst Tim Schuldt in a new Automotive News Europe story. "Delaying their launch would be no drama but help save costs."

VW agrees to halt next-gen rally car development to help others stay in WRC

Sat, 22 Jun 2013

Volkswagen has petitioned the FIA to hold on to the current specifications for cars in the World Rally Championship, according to The move is evidently an effort to keep as many competitors in the sport as possible, despite the fact that using the current spec racers may actually hurt Volkswagen's chances at winning. The three factory teams currently competing in the WRC are at the end of a three-year homologation cycle at the end of 2013, and new cars are expected to bow next year. But developing new racers could cost as much as $4.7 million.
That price tag would put M-Sport (which fields Ford racers) out of the WRC game for 2014 and would put Citroën participation in question as well. VW has already begun work on the next iteration of its Polo R WRC, and the hatch has nabbed four wins in six rounds this season. Now it appears that car won't bow until at least 2015. The FIA has officially agreed to freeze homologation of new WRC cars until the end of next season.

Carlex Criollo is a Volkswagen Multivan shrine to Alcantara, leather and... fish

Wed, 10 Jul 2013

A keen angler recently went to Polish tuner Carlex Design (the same folks who did that steampunk Mini Countryman a while back) for a revamp of his Volkswagen Multivan. What resulted is perhaps the most striking - yet fishing-unfriendly - interior we've ever seen in a van. Below the shoulder line, if a surface isn't covered in cross-stitched Alcantara, then it's covered in cross-stitched leather. Even the steering wheel airbag boss. And the seat supports. And the cupholders.
The brown hue of the Multivan's interior is called Criollo, named for an especially fine specimen of cocoa. The finishing touch on the overhaul is a fileting knife that Carlex made for the owner. We imagine he'll use the knife for the marine life, but keep his van far away from it.
