143,000


Full VW history up to 110,000


but only one home service by previous owner since :(


Having full service inc belts, water pump, coolent etc. by moi on Tuesday and lots of T-cut and wax. :)


Under my loving ownership hopefully it will last another 143,000

I say loving but I do have a habit of thrashing anything I drive :(

136k 2.4 tdi 2002,2nd owner, full vw history though thats stopped since I've had it ;)

being a white van man for a living, i had a transit for 3 yrs and put 180k on it, pretty much all motor way work and serviced when it was due , it never missed a heart beat,and still drove like the first day i had it when it went back.we had a new guy start and was sent down a transit from London with 20k on the clock the same age as mine, and what a crock of cr*p.

what I'm trying to say is in some cases the mileage is irrelevant to the condition of the vehicle,its how hard the miles its done have been!

THATS MY ARGUMENT AND I'M STICKING TO IT !!!!Rasp:

Mine should pass 90k in the next couple of weeks.

Should I be worried? I drive round permanently paranoid about every last niggling little sound, I'm now getting a complex about the 'ticking'.

I try not to thrash it before the engine comes up to temp and even then I try and keep it under 3000 revs on the motorway.

oh and it's a 2001 2.5 tdi acv 'velle, i'm the second owner, the first being a council and i've serviced her at 6 monthly intervals,

You sound like me Rayvon , mines covered just over 100,000(03, 2.5, ACV) and is as sweet as a nut really but I am always listening for noises and rattles each time I drive it,I know what you mean about developing a complex!
