Boy I haven't been on here in a while. Anywho, I am looking at getting a new car. I have been looking at Toyota's and Honda's for a while considering that these cars run forever which is what i need (Fuel Economy and Longevity). I have been looking for a while now and it just seems like the resale value is so insanely high that I can't pick a nice one up for under $5,000. So this has geared me towards possibly purchasing a 1999 Volkswagen Jetta. Here is the ad of the car I am looking at purchasing, http://detroit.craigslist.org/car/765534001.html
I am hoping some of you long time VW owners or people that just know a lot about them can tell me if they will run till 300,000 miles or not considering this car has to last me till im out of college which is another 4-5 years and I drive a lot.
Hope some people respond with some info! Thanks guys!
