I plan to take my 04 Jetta in to get some work done one it. It hasn't been worked on since June 2009, and is 800 miles away from needing an oil change. This is what I plan to do at the Volkswagon dealership. Oh and also, the car has not been inspected since 2009, since I have Texas plates in Virginia, where my car has been since.
Alignment (veers slight right)
4 new brake pads (getting squeaky, and I have to push far down for the car to slow down)
Get my check engine line looked at (Code read: "System Cooling Engine Performance" @ autozone)
[Maybe check @ a/c cooling levels?]
[Any other recommendations?]
In the fall I will probably be driving 70 miles a week on Fridays to shadow a doctor, so the car's gotta be in good shape. Hopefully with an 800$-1000$ budget will cover everything.
