i have a 2001 1.8t with 26000 miles on it .. just bought it a month ago and had to replace a light bulb lol :lol:

i had a 98 v6 for 5 years didnt have to replace anything till 98000 miles
the water pump broke so i changed the
timing belt
water pump
spark plugs and cables
and the upper valve gasket but it wasnt the one that was broken it was the middle one that was broken

i had to change the front engine mount a couple of times because i used to race it a lot and the front engine mount kept jumping out

after a while the 2 rear engin mounts went bad so i replaced them at 110000 miles
other than that

the coolant sensor went bad on 105000 so had to replace that but the check engine light never went off ... so i checked it again
one of the o2 sensors was bad
never had time to replace those since my brother crashed the car with 135000 miles i think and that was 4 months ago

only 32,000miles on my 01.5 V6 5-speed but I plan on putting 200,000+ on it. Although, one of the new tdi's is awfully tempting :wink: any of you european guys have a tdi with tiptronic? Hows the fuel mileage on them?

Whatnow:
Are you the one and only owner of your car? And these are your only repairs? You must have had more repairs than that. If you haven't, I am totally impressed.

302870 miles on my 2000 1.8t 5spd Wagon! Just yesterday!

> Cause Germans built it!!!

I have a German-built bridge to sell you, buddy!

Oooops - how did that trailing zer0 get in there? I'm barely over 30k miles. Oh well.

Good Qestion. I was wondering how my car would do in the long run.

99 1.8T
78.5k miles
So far only major work done, other than regular wear items, is the front right axle (really just a cv joint gone bad due to a ripped boot)

80k I will do the TB change and give her some new engine goodies! :D
