1993 VW Golf GL 5spd Hatchback
i'm about to get myself a 1993 VW Golf GL 5spd Hatchback, the guy told me over the phone that: "The cars timing belt tensioner broke so the car does not run, it did run excellent prior to it breaking. The 1.8L is not an interference engine so once a new belt is put on it should fire right up."
i asked a friend how much would it cost me to have it fixed, he told me that it would be $350-400 and that i must go to a VW dealership to repair it.
the car itself is $1000 and from the picture that the seller send me the body has no dent and the interior is nice. i really need this car since some f##k hit my current ride while it was parked and some of the links hat hold the front wheel are cracked. i don't really want to spend that kind of money on this car and i wanted to know if you guys think that it's a good deal...?
