2006 Jetta TDI 5-speed with RocketChip tune

150 more pictures in an album at: http://www.fototime.com/inv/F03DA25E2D58E28

This is a 2006 Jetta 5-speed sedan finished in Wheat Beige with the Charcoal leather interior. Itís a one owner car with a clean Carfax report. It has 324,000 miles (and rising) but could pass for 100K. Beautiful rust-free body with shiny paint. Right fender was painted and is a shade off and has some touched up chips and scratches. Rest of the body is excellent with just a few minor dings. Very clean interior with no rips or tears but headliner sagging.

Mechanically it runs great. Turbo just rebuilt by Timís Turbos, Falls Church, VA but the wastegate hasnít been adjusted. The hose to the actuator is disconnected so itís always fully open and thus sets the CEL with a P0299 underboost code. On the plus side, this way itís AVERAGING 54 mpg and will get well over 60 mpg on the highway. It also has an EGR cooler delete and a Rocketchip tune so once the wastegate is dialed in, itís a beast.

In addition to the turbo it has a new LCD display in the instrument cluster, set of new General Altimax tires and a new Bosch MAF sensor. Timing belt was done around 250K and the cam was replaced at that time. The transmission syncros were replaced not too long ago along with the clutch so it shifts as smooth as new. The engine runs strong and feels smooth while idling, accelerating and throughout the cruising range and it starts instantly whether hot or cold. The steering wheel is on dead center going down the road with no shakes or vibrations at speed, the brakes are firm with no pedal pulsations or pulling to one side when stopping and the suspension is tight. The A/C blows ice cold. I've fixed a lot of annoying and cosmetic issues. New window switch assembly, center armrest fix, new rear vents, etc. This is a car you could easily take to 500,000 miles and beyond and drive across the country today.

I'm in the DC area but may drive it to Florida for a week in June. Priced at $2,995
