this idea may sound crazy, I'm sure it does. A guy in PA is selling an 04, he might even read this post, I'm in CO unfortunately so a test drive is kinda out of the question. But the car has 12*** miles under warranty. My question is if the warranty transfers to me, then if sh** breaks it can be fixed right? I don't think the car is modded so dealer would only be able to say something broke from abuse. Yes it's a private seller, far away, but its an 04 in my price range under warranty. So help me from making a stupid decision, one way or another. Thanks

i want you to put your feelings in the closet-cuz i am gonna be honest. first of all yes it is crazy. i will buy shoes, shirts, pants and poke(those from hawaii know what i'm talkin about) without trying it first. but why would you even cater the thought of spending thousands of dollars without testing the product first? second if you "think" the car hasn't been modified thats not a wise way of thinking. i sell cars for a living...u won't believe what i've heard and seen- "oh yeah, the car runs perfect"-and as soon as they trade it in, come to find out the car has some serious unforseen damge. if the guy never even modified his car, what if he pounded the living daylights out of the car and never changed the oil? not that i'm saying the seller is dishonest- IMO if u can't drive it don't buy it. buy one locally patience will pay off-
bottom line is its your money... act like you want to spend it wisely
just tryin to help.... in a blunt sorta way of course
I appreciate bluntness, it avoids confusion. This is the response I was expecting but i figured worth asking b/c it comes with a warranty. As much as I'd like an 04 i may have to settle for 03 for now but I'm sure when I buy a brand new car in a few yrs. the "hp war" going on now will only have made things better. And maybe SOA will have put in a tranny worthy of these cars. Thanks again. I wish I didn't live in middle America...
I live in PA and this sounds like what i want to do, try to get an 04 for a reasonable price even if it is slightly used. If you are not going to pursue this offer could you please pass all the info to me.
my loan is up to 20k. I looked into payments on an 04 but I'd have to put down $5k to have the payments the same as my 20k loan. I need the $5k from selling my jetta to pay me brother back (he loaned me money to buy it). If I didn't have that to worry about I would try for the 04 for sure. But as it stands I have to pay him as well. I agree though I'm a mod addict and stock isn't fast enough so the trouble and money for a warranty SOA won't easily back up isn't worth it. Looks like an 03 is the ticket.
i say never buy until u test drive a car....i know this from experiance...i'm on of the fools who bought a 300zx on ebay, it was ok for the first week, but after nothign but problems, maybe i would of known if i checked out the car personally before i bough it. With my WRX, i test drove a 5MT and ended up buying a a/t w/o test driving the a/t....and boy im a missing out on lots of things.....=( so i got the TC moded by protorque and is sitting in my garage waiting to get it installed ( during my spring break) so hopefully that will change my experiance.
