Volkswagen Passat Sport TDI 1.9 130 TrendLine 2004
For sale is my 2004 Volkswagen Passat in fabulous condition for its age. Only 138k on the clock which is nothing for the best diesel engine on the planet - the VW PD AVF (130) engine. This is widely regarded as the best German engine ever built - hence why I spent several months looking at countless number of Passat's all over the country before I found this one. It's in excellent condition inside and out and as it's the rare Trendline edition, it benefits from many extras not found in the standard Passat S and SE models. Just been freshly washed, polished, waxed and valeted for its new owner.
Very economical diesel and returns an average 62 MPG.
MOT 18 August 2014
TAX 31 October 2014
Full Service History with 12 stamps in the book, the service history includes:-
82,000 (Major service including timing belt kit and water pump)
129,000 (Major service including timing belt kit and water pump)
133,000 (Turbo system reconditioned)
As you can tell it is mechanically sound, with the 6 speed box, it pulls like a train through every gear and can keep on accelerating even up through the Scottish Highlands with no problems. It has never let me down at all and I will be gutted to see it go, but unfortunately needs must at the moment. With the timing belt kit and reconditioned turbo fitted in the last 10k, this car doesn't need any major works for another 70,000+ (VW recommend timing belt service every 80k) and should sail through the next MOT.
The optional extras only found on this model include:-
6 speed manual gear box
Electric windows all round with safety locking for the rear windows
Electric and heated mirrors
Chrome trim around the body
Upgraded interior trim and seats
Ski port in rear seats (fancy VW term for part of the middle seat drops down to create a 'hole' which allows you to put long objects in the car - like ski poles)
Auto-dimming mirror (dims dependent on sunlight and headlights behind you)
Air conditioning with Eco mode (a very expensive upgrade when the car was new, hence the rarity of it - in effect, it turns on the air conditioning without the compressor, therefore you don't experience the drop in MPG as you do with other cars with air con)
Climate control
Air conditioned refrigerated glove box (can't beat an ice cold Irn Bru on a summers day!)
Traction control with ESP
6 CD changer built into the dashboard (usually fitted in the boot, but not on this model)
Boot and fuel cap unlock buttons on drivers door
Anti-glare windscreen
Also has a tow bar with twin electrics, suitable for a trailer or a caravans electrics. We had this fitted at a local garage last summer to take a small caravan on holiday. In the end, we only ended up doing it once before the caravan needed major, very costly repairs. So the clutch has not been abused at all except for that one 60 mile tow. The clutch, flywheel and gearbox are still in excellent condition, gear changes are smooth just as you would expect on a VW with less than half the mileage.
The bodywork is in great condition, there are the odd light scratches which you would expect, a good polish will cover these no bother. No signs of rust anywhere as the car has been very well maintained and regularly waxed to ensure the car looks just as good as it did almost 10 years ago now.
I have 2 remote locking keys, service book, V5, MOT, receipts, etc. ready to give the new owner.
Any questions, feel free to get in touch. I can arrange viewings/test drives most of the time. I can also arrange to meet at any local bus/train station at your convenience - there are train stations in nearby Leuchars, Cupar, Kirkcaldy, Dundee. Or bus stations in Leven, Kirkcaldy, St Andrews and Dundee. I am located 9 miles from St Andrews.
First to see will buy, no doubt about it. I am very reluctant to let it go this cheap (Glass CAP private market price is £2960.00, dealer price is £3710.00) but needs must, we need a 7 seater very soon so the Passat must go as soon as possible. Very reluctant sale - grab a bargain!
£1495 ONO - an absolute bargain for the rarest Passat ever made, I have not found anything similar with such a great service history for anywhere near this price unless you find one with over 200k on the clock and even then I have still priced my Passat lower to (unfortunately for me) force a quick sale.
