I'm doing some ghetto fab car shopping this afternoon and I've come across two cars that I've favored. One is a 1995 VW Jetta, and the other is a 1990 Nissan Stanza. These two posts are on Craigslist, and were also posted with acceptable grammar and punctuation.
First is the Jetta;
5 speed manual
No radio, don't like radios anyway.
Zero, to none, cosmetic damage.
Second is the Stanza;
Doesn't mention mileage, probably high.
Doesn't mention cylinders, probably has 4.
5 speed manual.
Cosmetic damage to body, minor.
I've sent emails to both owners, and texts messages as well. Which car would you guys prefer if everything was good with performance, and day to day travel qualities? The Jetta is what I favor, the Stanza second
I also am far from a mechanic, but I can do anything with some guidance. So repairing, replacing, or other DIY projects on a Sunday afternoon would be no hassle. Any input on ease of maintenance or upkeep would be appreciated. Any suggestions on what to look for when I drive out to see the car in person would also be very welcome.
