I just purchased one for $1200.

It has a auto transmission. The timing belt was just changed.

Here are some problems I have found so far:

> A/C works but the heater doesn't(what could be the cause?)

> It smells like its burning oil(Any idea why?)

> It has a crack in the windshield(not sure if my insurance company will pay for it to be replaced or not).

I'll post more when I find out more.

Heater core is clogged, or the vent gate is not switching to the heat side, common
issue with VW.

Smells like oil, because it's probably burning it, or or leaking on to the block
from somewhere and burning.

Your insurance will not pay for the crack in the window if you bought it like that.
