I’m the second owner. The vehicle has been VW dealer serviced throughout its history. It is STOCK, without any non-factory body mods, chips, suspension upgrades, electronic or interior upgrades of any kind. It has just about 74,500 miles on it. It was garaged for the first 60K miles of its life, but since I bought it in the spring I haven’t had a garage to put it in.
Since I bought the car, I’ve had the thermostat and the mass airflow sensor and harness replaced. The dealer also performed a program upgrade for the TipTronic that VW made available to improve shift quality in all 4Motion cars.
I had the windshield replaced at my own expense earlier this year because I like really clear glass and it was hazy from wiper use.
