I need some advise guys.
I'm trying to sell my 2002 Jetta 1.8T Tiptronic w/ 117,000 miles on it. It runs AWESOME and has been loved it's entire life.
Well, my buyer's mechanic looked over the vehicle and noticed some things wrong with it.
1) Valve cover gasket is leaking (needs to be replaced)
2) Front strut mounts need replacing (probably needs suspension job all the way around)
Well he's telling me the parts and labor would be $2000 to fix those things. Is that accurate? I need to know how much to knock of the $7000 estimated retail value to make this guy happy. He has lots of friends at mechanics around here so the likelihood of him paying for labor to replace this stuff is very low.
Let me know what you guys all think so i can get a good idea what I should let this car go for. As of right now, it's listed on eBay and Craigslist so i have other buyers lined up who are interested as well.
Thanks for the help on this...
