Ours: ’08 Volkswagen GTI
Every once in a while you’ll see one of our personal cars come up on Mint. Why? Because our cars are Mint after all. We bought the GTI new from our local VW dealer here in Connecticut. We have all of the service records and original documents. It has been great to us and we have enjoyed every mile of the 92,000 we’ve accumulated. It is adult owned, unmodified, never raced and always garaged. Just recently, we performed the required timing belt change along with the water pump. And just last week, we serviced the A/C and recharged it using the new equipment at Auto Turismo Sport. It is mechanically perfect. And the body is a 9.1 out of 10. You can’t go 92,000 miles without a stone chip in the Reflex Silver paint or bumper ding here and there. The GTI is a DSG Automatic and it is equipped with the Autobahn package and that includes sunroof, leather, upgraded stereo, red calipers, heated seats and lots of little things. We were told to stay firm at $12000 for our little friend. Sounds right to us. Here are more picks at our Flickr page.
