1999 Volkswagen Cabrio GL

Mileage: 200,000

Herriman, UT | Posted July 15, 2021

$1,300

*DISCLAIMER* CRANKS BUT DOES NOT START* WILL NEED TOWED*
Up for sale is my 1999 Tornado Red VW Cabrio 5 speed manual. I bought this car June 2nd for $2200 under the pretence of it only needing an O2 sensor, but I learned that to not be entirely true. There are some issues with the car, but I don't think it would take much to at least get it registered and driving if you can work on cars.
It currently cranks but doesn't start. I THINK it's either the ignition switch ($20) or the ECU ($100). I am by no means a skilled mechanic though, so I'd rather sell it to someone who's more mechanically inclined with these MK3 VWs and just take the loss. I was able to drive it for a few days after I bought it, but then it just won't start now (I can send you a video of me trying to start it). I can't read from the ECU with my scan tool and the gauge cluster doesn't show a check engine light which it should given the broken O2 sensor. These three things make me think it's probably the ECU, maybe a bad ignition switch (not uncommon on MK3s).
It has several other things that are broken that I've noticed so far:
Passenger window regulator
Wheels are too big (17s instead of 14s)
Windshild is cracked
A/C needs recharged
Front springs have some kind of clamps on them
Aftermarket seats have some front-to-back movement
Aftermarket Stereo can turn on without the key (probably just needs the harness redone)
Top is in pretty rough shape
Leaks a little oil from (I think) the rear main seal.
The engine ran strong and the transmission shifts smooth with no grinding and has a new shift select rod in the linkage so the shifter feels good so there's no wondering what gear you're in. It also has a new battery and the tires seem pretty new. This car has potential to be a great weekend car with a few hundred bucks and some patience in the right hands.
Pretty firm on price since I'm already taking a $600 loss not counting registration. Please TEXT ONLY as I can't always answer phone calls.
Car is sold AS-IS with no warranties
