I'm looking into purchasing my first vehicle. I have a friend who's really into buying/selling VW's and he has a Jetta from the early 2000's with 240 000 km on it that he insists is a great deal and says I should buy. I have a lot of reservations about a car with that many km on it, especially since I live in Canada and it would have been driven through the winter. I'm a student, and I won't be working full time again until next summer, so I can't afford a major repair within the next year.
Do VW's really have that superior of engines that it still has lots of life after 240 000 km?
Thanks for the advice!
