Pros and Cons: To Keep or to Sell and if so What to Buy
My current car: beloved 2003 VW GTI 105,000k 1.8t manual, sunroof, seat heat and even a tape deck!
Pros: it still runs!
No major issues/well maintained
It’s the perfect size for me- inside and out!
It was a pretty good year for this make and model
- All good things come to an end and can I handle being the owner when that day comes?
- My income is limited and so is my health -I need to decide how much money to put into it vs selling and putting that money into something a little newer.
- My mechanic said that there are a lot of electrical problems with the gti’s between about 2005-2010 and that it would be best to replace it with a 2011 or newer (= more expensive)
I’d love to hear feedback from another gti enthusiast about whether to keep or sell and if I sell, what could possibly compare? Where is the best place to buy and sell gti’s?
(Note- I’m smallish- 5’2 and find the visibility and comfort to be excellent unlike things like the Toyota Prius, Mazdas or Hyundai Alantra.)
