Dear vwforum community,
I am offering for sale a 2010 JSW TDI DSG. 69k miles.
Clean and clear title in hand with MY NAME on it !

update due to timing belt roller bearing failure.
as a result :
- outer shell "ate" a perfect hole through the timing belt cover
- something started cutting into the timing belt
- all the balls from the bearing ended up in the bottom half of the timing belt cover
HOWEVER no tooth was skipped, belt did not tear and no further damage
but boy what a PITA having to do the timing belt 4k miles after warranty ran out. Most guys do not do all this work until 100k-120k miles.
So the biggest maintenance item has been done.

We are the 2nd owners and my wife has driven the car since i believe just under 46k miles.
The first was a 74 year old local retired gentleman.

i have personally driven this car to Chicago and back averaging 47MPG doing ~3mph over the speed limit. 42MPG in real world conditions are easily obtainable if you stick to Energy-efficient driving techniques. My wife does a lot of city driving and naturally refuses to obey any of my instructions on hypermiling and gets an average of around 38MPG.
No repaints, accidents or bodywork of any kind.
Garaged EVERY night and EVERY single day at work.
The car has minor dents, dings and scratches from every day use that happened during previous owners ownership - but rest assured we are the ones ALWAYS parking furthest from the entrance of the grocery store, restaurant or any structure prone to be frequented by the careless masses.

Known as a Mk6 Golf variant on the rest of the planet, but sold as the Jetta Sportwagen here in the US. If you are looking at this listing you must know how coveted these are. I will spare you the plethora of reviews that rant and rave about the superiority of the TDI wagon to any SUV when it comes to fuel economy, utilitarian value, practicality and TCO (total cost of ownership).

The car has following options :
- Platinum gray metallic Exterior Titan Black Interior
- DVD satellite Navigation system ($1800 and worth every penny!)
- Panoramic sunroof ($1300)
- 6-speed DSG transmission ($1100)
- 17" alloy wheels ($450)
- Rear Side Airbags (rare) ($350)
- Sport & Protection Rubber mats, splash guards & trunk liner ($310)
- Media Device Interface for ipod ($200)

all in it cost $30,559 plus tax delivered at Byers Imports in Columbus, OH.

All maintenance done at local VW and Audi dealerships Byers and Hatfield, all paperwork incl. windowsticker comes with the car. After free maintenance (until 36k miles) always serviced by Jon Hamilton, a TDI-club trusted mechanic and world record holder on Pikes Peak in a 2000 Golf TDI, starting with the 40k DSG service.

2-17-2014 complete timing belt service: replaced timing belt, timing belt cover, timing belt tensioner, small top roller, small lower roller, large upper roller, water pump, serpentine belt and coolant - while the car was out of commission for a few days I went ahead and had a RocketChip Stage 1+ tune done ($1653.57)
12-2-13 60k service incl. brake fluid replacement ($224.70)
(all OE parts used, german Pentosin Super Dot 4 brake fluid, etc. etc.)
11-12-2013 all tires were replaced with Continental Extreme Contact DWS All Season tires incl. discount tire free replacement certificates (works at every discount tire in the US, $701).
5-21-2013 DSG (fluid and filter) and 50k miles service ($416.33)

please contact me with any serious questions.
I can send you a link to the picasa web album with detailed high res pics.
I also have a current (11-23) autocheck report (just as good (read useless) as carfax). ;-)
this pic shows every tool i own in the back of the trunk.
I ran out of tools before i ran out of space ;-)

I will arrange PPIs at buyers expense (and reserve the right to refuse shops that i deem not trustworthy with my cars)
and would be more than happy to accommodate a fly & drive.
Closest airport to me is CMH (Port Columbus International Airport).
My last TDI (an ALH) with almost 200k miles went to a very happy and satisfied buyer in Texas who flew in and drove
it back (never having driven a manual car before) and averaged 56mpg all the way back ;-)

asking $18500 obo.
