Thanks for the feedback. I'll pass this along to her. I'm hoping she takes someone along with her during her car buying for support and to assist in evaluating any offers she is presented.

tough one. prices vary a bit. I'd say maybe $16k without the nav.

thanks qbrozen for your help! I was with my friend when she traded her 2003 GTI 1.8T w/ 80K & 5 speed stick last night. As I said, the car has been parked on the streets of brooklyn, queens, & manhattan pretty much all its life. Dented panels, scuffed bumpers, you get the picture. You pegged its value between $3000 & $3500. 3 days ago, her CEL came on (some $500 sensor). So between that and the significant reconditioning, we were offered $2500 & took it. The guy was upfront about her GTI in excellent shape at $3300.
So as usual, you were right on. I appreciate you help as always!

You know what? Stickguy said the same thing, but I just don't trust the car, especially to a friend.

Just to follow up, the offers ranged on this from 29-30. Was traded today for $30,500 on a 2012 XC60 T6 AWD Premium Plus demo with 5000 miles. The high miles downright killed it and they told my parents as much.
MSRP on the XC60 was just over 46, they bought for $33,9 - full balance of the Safe and Secure warranty/maintenance. Ended up working out - still waiting on full details.
