Ugh. I was afraid of that. Ridiculous that you have to do that just replace a stupid bulb. :P

My OEM battery lasted about 3.5 years before it crapped out (I live in Phoenix metro like the OP). Replaced mine with an Interstate and no issues so far. Only 1.5 years on this battery though.

Hah...that happened to me, actually. But my dealer made good on the seat. I think they actually have to remove the seat to get to that airbag harness.

The OP is referring to the engine code. BPY and BWA were two of the several variants of the 2.0 TFSI motor. But in the States, we only got BPY until the TSI motor took over.

Your Golf should have a 55-liter (14.5 US gal.) tank. Most Golfs do. Your fuel economy does seem very much on the low side, though. You should be getting upwards of 40 mpg (and probably around 30 mpg...

That price is on the high end of KBB private sale, but it does have extended maintenance and looks well-maintained. Low miles for a 2-year old car, too.

I would ask the seller what "extended...

+1. If you're upside down on it already, refinancing will put you in even more debt over time. And trading at a loss to get into a simpler model is money out of your pocket. Keep the car if you can.
