Re: Birthday surprise (2008 VW Golf)

Hi Kevin,

Every car is some kind of risk. Technical condition of used car depends on different aspects: manufactured year, timely car maintenance, how it was used and served by previous owner(s) and, of course, what was happening with a car, whether it had serious damages or not. Today it’s not a problem to know vehicle accident history on https://trustvin.com/auto-history-by...the-vin-number, https://www.vindecoderz.com/, https://vehiclehistory.com, or any other VIN checking service.

I think 2008 VW Golf is a good choice for your daughter, but you need to check it before purchase.

I'm guessing Miami wasn't hit too hard during hurricane Irma, but def double check any used car you might by for flood damage.

Mk5 Golfs are a great choice, I miss mine.
