My husband's truck (that requires a fill up every three days) is now paid off. This leaves us with a $8000 budget or less max to spend on a used car just to get to and from work so we dont have to use the truck.
We are looking at a 2002-2005 Dodge Neon Sedan SXT or a 2002-2004 VW Jetta. The Neon we found is $5995 and has 60k miles. The Jetta we found has 69k miles and is listed at $7495. Both appear form the website to have no dents, etc. interior looks nice.
We will be looking for a car soon. (The sooner the better).
Can you give me some details on what to look for on a used Jetta. Do they usually last long. If so, what is a major part that is known to go out?
