A final goodbye to Katelyn’s VW Jetta TDI

Posted By on March 29, 2014


Good news … but sad news today. My daughter sold her 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI and it left with the new owner in Columbus today; hopefully it will mean as much to him as it did to her. The little diesel TDI is the only car Katelyn has ever known and it took her from learning to drive in high school, through college and medical school and nearly through her residency (she finishing in June). Besides the “no-no” of putting her tools on the truck lid (photo above … hmm!), she has taken good care of her car and it has definitely taken good care of her and provided her with $4000 after all the years and miles … not to mention her excellent lifetime fuel efficiency of 45.6 mpg.

I know both mother and daughter had tears when looking at the picture of it being driven away — it reminded me of selling mine back in 2007. Enjoy the little diesel TDI Steve!
