feeler: 93 Passat TD, what's it worth?
« on: September 10, 2007, 01:13:53 am »
My brother in Toronto is selling his car, a '93 Passat TD, GL model. Mileage is high 2xx,xxx. He's let a few things go on it, air conditioner is not working (leaks somewhere), heated seats don't work, heater core blew out this past summer and is bypassed, and the IP is leaking (definitely needs a rebuild or at the least new seals before it is driveable).

Still, the engine is good (head was replaced because of the dreaded crank key issue) and the body is in good shape.

I wish I were closer, I'd take it just for parts, but he wants to get rid of it.
Any opinions on what it's worth?


'92 Passat TD
'01 Golf TDI
'15 Golf TDI

I'd say 2500-3000 if it looks Ok it is worth probably 5000 with everything fixed and pretty assuming it is not  typical back east rusty.  The motor alone is worth 1500 here in town. too far to go and get though Good luck Dan

Depending on the body I'd say 500-1000

Yeah, in Ontario these cars have no value, $500-1000 no more if the pump is leaking and the heater core is bypassed...
They sell for $2000 range when emission tested and safetied, no much value left in them and people shy away from Passats compared to the Golf and Jettas. The motors don't even have any value I have many and no buyers...

They've seriously taken a sharp noise dive in value over the past 5 months. The only way to get any money for them is to sell them in pieces.

Well I have 4 motors, all had crank gear issues, I spend a few hundred fixing them up and no one is interested in paying a $1000-1500 for a fresh motor...I know what machine shop ones cost and what new overland ones cost (already installed a few). I am just hanging on to them, they will go up in value once all the rust buckets are crushed (won't be long).
