Oh well...

My dad purchased a 1994 Jetta 2.0, 5 speed a while back. Before I read this I found some horrific cancer on the driver side wheel well area... I went to 5 body shops and only one is willing to fix it for 400-500 Dollars. There is also a lot of rust in the gas cap area. Other than those non-minor spots the car has no rust. Thank you for posting this. I now know that my rust is not uncommon. My dad is planning on giving it to me for my first car. it was only $950.00 If I can not get the AC to work, I plan on taking out the compressor and getting the kit for the belts and pulley stuff. There are quite a few major leaks...
