Question about 1989 Volkswagen Cabriolet
I will give you the same advice I gave my customers at my repair shop. Buying a car is an emotional experience for most of us. We fall in love with the looks or the performance of a certain car and turn a blind eye to it's faults. To protect yourself from the aggravation of a money pit you have to ask a lot of questions and if possible have the car checked out by a trusted mechanic. An owner with nothing to hide will or should let you do this. How much oil do you have to add each month? Checking oil at regular intervals is good maintenance but adding a few quarts of oil each month could be an indication of a serious oil leak. Ask the owner if he has records of maintenance especially ask about the timing belt. Was it changed at the proper time? Is there any blue smoke coming from the exhaust? Tapping noises from the engine? A car with 130K miles isn't necessarily a worn out car if the reccomended maintenance has been done. My car is pushing 170K miles and is doing just fine, but it is maintained. The best car to buy is a one owner low milage car with records. They are hard to find and usually cost more but they are worth it in the long run. Good luck!
