For Sale 1999.5 VW Jetta TDI

Recommended Posts

It time for my Jetta to move on. 1999.5 VW Jetta TDI ALH Diesel. 282,000 miles on it but it has been very well maintained. Malone Stage 1.5 tune with spec 215 injector nozzles, custom cold air intake and Southbend Endurance clutch. New timing belt and water pump at 260,000 miles. Tires on it now are brand new. I also have a second set of wheels but the tires are shot on those wheels. 20 inch LED light bar mounted in the front and is activated by the high beam switch when the fog light switch is on. New polyurethane front control arm bushings and new Bilstein shocks and struts all the way around.

 

Edit : I forgot to mention that it has a Bluetooth Sanyo Stereo with sub box in the trunk, it also has heated seats in the front and leather front and rear. It also has an aluminum skid plate under the engine from JSP in Canada.

 

I bought the car with 160,000 miles and it has had the oil changed every 10,000 miles since with Amsoil VW spec oil. 

 

This is is by far, the best car I have ever owned and has been very well maintained.

 

We are wanting $4,000.00 firm.

It is is not uncommon to see well over 400k on the ALH. This one has 282k on it and still runs just like the day I bought it. In order to get that life out of the engine the maintenance has to be done. I replaced the timing belt every 100k miles. Last one was done at 262k. When doing the timing belt I also replaced the water pump with an all steel pump and also changed all the rollers. A lot of other other parts have been changed also. New shocks and struts and new front control arm bushings. There are a bunch of rattles inside but the car is very mechanically sound.

 

It is very common for me to get 700 miles to a tank. I reset the trip odometer every time I fuel it up. It usually takes 14gallons to fill it.

 

700/14=50 miles per gallon. So I may be a little conservative on my estimate.

 

I don’t have the stock wheels and tires but I am sure I know. Couple people that would exchange for what is on there currently if the stock set up was needed.

I saw a guy that had over 600K on his ALH and never had an major failures.
