I was looking to replace my beloved 1997 VW GTI 2.0 L that had over 243,000 miles on it but was also starting to rust due to the over-abundance of road salt chemicals that are used on our roads in the winter. I found an on-line listing for a 1998 VW GTI 2.0 L at Gene Langan VW. I immediately called them as their ad about the car sounded great, almost too good to be true. The salesman assured me that the car was in excellent condition. I decided to go see the car that same day as the price was very reasonable and I was afraid it might sell quickly. Well, let me tell you, when I saw the car, my eyes almost popped out! The car was in mint condition, and it had only 70,000 original miles on it! I checked out all of the famous rust locations and there was absolutely none. I did not even drive the car before I offered a deposit.
Now I know why Gene Langan VW has such a fantastic reputation for selling excellent used cars. The list of parts they replaced was extremely impressive -- I won’t have to touch this car for many years to come other than to perform regular maintenance on it. This car truly does look and perform like a brand new car, and it gets between 37–½ and 38 miles per gallon, and folks, this is not a diesel! In fact, this car is so nice that I decided to take it off the road for the winter and store it and have since purchased a different car to drive in the winter.
The whole team at Gene Langan VW was fantastic to deal with, from salesman Dave Crecco, who was very informative about the car and very patient with me while I secured my finances, to the Service Manager, and also to young Gene, who was an absolute delight to speak with. This dealership is top-notch and I would not hesitate to purchase another car from them again!
