VW TDI advice

I found a 1999 Jetta TDI 5spd on craigslist for $3500 with 130k miles that "runs great". It seemed like a decent deal and sparked my interest. I have only seen a few exterior photos and the body looks nice. I was thinking about setting up a time to check it out in person. I'm not too familiar with TDI engines. Are there some TDI specific things I should look out for (common engine problems etc)?



Best tank= 81.23 mpg on 07-01-2008
Longest range= 791 miles on 9.74 gallons
