Question type: Maintenance & Repair

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.


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.
