1999 VW Jetta with blown motor is it worth $600
If I have a chance to buy a 1999 VW Jetta for $600 in
excellent condition but needs a motor. Do you think $600 is
a fair price?
I think that is too high. Offer less.
Agree. The car is 20 years old. An engine replacement (with labor) will cost thousands.
In nice shape, the car's worth $3,000 with good tires. See if the owner will pay you to take it; I wouldn't even do that. Even as a project car, the engine will cost $2,000, and then you don't know what else is wrong with it. A transmission problem? Another grand.
Nope All they have there is a vehicle that's worth scrap prices.
Ed is right. Tell them you will pay to haul it off rather than them having to pay the tow truck.
