Endurance runner: VW Golf Country with almost 300,000 km on eBay
The green Golf Country was built in 1990 and now has around 293,000 kilometers on the clock. Despite the high mileage, the SUV pioneer makes a well-groomed impression in the pictures.
The seller explains that he rarely drove the Golf Country. Even if the raised Golf 2 could easily master easy terrain and wintry conditions, he only drove the car between May and October for fear of salt and snow.
Nevertheless, there are construction sites in a 32-year-old car with almost 300,000 kilometers, and the seller also wants to disclose them consciously. In addition to minor paint defects and signs of wear, the Golf has rust spots on the tank filler neck and paint chips on the windshield frame.
A lot has been renewed at Golf Country
It is more important, however, that the basis and technology are right. The seller writes that the Golf has been serviced regularly and that many parts have been renewed in recent years. These include toothed belts including water pump, ignition distributor, spark plugs, axle boots, wishbone bearings and stabilizers. The brakes are also new.
An early compact SUV with 18 centimeters of ground clearance
In total, special parts were used on the Country 438, including the skid plate, bull bar, spare wheel holder, new bumpers and suspension.
The copy offered here is largely in its original condition, the 1.8-liter four-cylinder with 98 hp remained untouched. The five-spoke rims are covered with chunky off-road tires, the rear windows are tinted, and sports seats with body-colored seat panels have been installed in the interior. According to the seller, all modifications are registered. The Golf still has MOT until April 2023.
The question of the price remains: With a few days left, there is currently no bid for the unconventional Golf 2 – the seller is asking 9999 euros as a starting bid. Those who are impatient can also buy the Golf Country immediately for 13,999 euros. However, it is worth taking a look at the well-known used car exchanges, because this Golf Country is being offered there for 10,250 euros.
