son has a co worker that is wanting to sell an '85 jetta. it is a diesel with a 5 speed. No pics but said it ran . 177,000 miles What should I look for that would be $$$ to repair. he is asking $500. thanks for advice
pretty solid car, but Id still look for rot. If it runs repairs shouldn't be too bad. If it no longer runs and there is a possibility of injection pump issues, that can be very pricey and more than you would have paid for the car.
