Hey all,

I've got a friend that's been drooling over a 2000 1.8T GLS sedan...Any things he should be checking for before buying? It's got 45k miles, and loads of options... I'm guessing the tie-rods and timing belt, but anything else to check out?

check the oil and colent to see if they seem to be in good shape. also ask if you can see service records, just to make sure the car was taken care of
