Default Looking at this 2002 Passat. What do you guys think?

Looking at purchasing this car for 2,500 off craigslist. I contacted the buyer and am checking it out tonight. What do you guys think? Anything to especially watch out for? I'm pretty sure I can replace the airbag.

DRIVER SEAT AIR BAG IS DEPLOYED NOT SURE WHY CAR WAS LIKE THAT WHEN I GOT IT!

Airbags are highly unlikely to deploy for no reason. I'd bet money it was in an accident.

Mike is right. Its likely been wrecked. Check Carfax and Autocheck if your serious about buying it.
