2008 VW Jetta 2.5 SE
5 speed manual
239k miles

I am the 2nd owner of this car, and have owned it since 44k miles.
It is will taken care of and I would not hesitate to hop in today and drive it across the country.

Original suspension was replaced last year with a kit from iDparts.com (they are well known for providing lift kits for VWs, mainly diesels but also applies to gas cars for the model years where they share the same chassis).

Koni Special Active struts
Springs from 2wd VW Tiguan
Provides 1.5"-2" lift

Car also comes with 2 sets of tires - winter & summer
Winter tires are on 16" rims from a 2015 VW Golf Sportwagen. Tires have a lot of tread left. They worked great in the winter of 2022 and I never got stuck.
Summer tires are on 17" rims, the rims are OEM VW and came with the car when I bought it. Tires have decent tread remaining.

Comes with WeatherTech floor mats.

The car is in great shape mechanically.
Maintenance records until about 2015. After that I started doing my own regular maintenance work. Can provide extensive ECStuning and FCP Euro order lists if you really really want them.

The only cons are:
Airbag light is on from when headliner was replaced
Car has been smoked in
Has a bad TPMS sensor
Driver's side seat is worn
Driver's side seat heater does not work

Nothing else besides that. Does not leak any fluids.
Again, I would not hesitate to hop in and drive this car across the country.
Would make a great first car, or simply provide reliable transportation.
