Bought a 2001 Passat 4moition for $1500. A coolant hose popped off on the way home so it was fun getting it here without the proper tools. I should have known better. Plan to get the coolant system flushed tomorrow. Take it to Autozone to test the charging system. Change the oil. Clean it and hit oxidized paint with compound and wax. 150,000 miles, so hope to get a couple of years out of it. Bought for a friend but I’ll be working on it. I had a BMW E46 before my current company car.
