I just bought my first car which was the Passat SEL premium TSI 1.8T that had 77K miles on it. I know that can be a high number for just buying a car but I wanted to know if someone could give me an estimate on about how long my car should last me. I saw a lot of people say that Passat can easily last up to 200K+ miles.

Take care of it, it will take care of you. I've got a 2003 Passat 1.8t 5sp manual wagon, 177k miles, still going strong, expecting to get many more miles out of it. Your's sounds quite a bit newer than mine, I have no experience with that model. Use the recommended oil & fluids for the car, keep up on the scheduled maintenance, the car is just broken in, should have a lot of life in it.

Yes it can last that long but not easily. You must do regular maintenance with all the oil and fluid changes per the manual. Follow that manual!
