Hi folks,


so my car went past 222000 miles two days ago, and I was wondering, who else has got an exceptionally high mileage car? Is there one person on here who has the HIGHEST mileage? Im just interested to see, thats all.


my engine still sounds sweet as the day she was new, and the only problems i have had have been my fault! so, we know VW make excellent cars. But, the question is...for how much longer will mine last?!


 


Anyway...answers on a post card (or reply to this thread!)


what mileage is your car?

4. Ben h - 178000 - 1.8t - Full Stage 2 Original Turbo

 jesus crist...   best question should be whats the year of your car and what mileage...


 


i thought my golf was becoming a shed .. its a 98 110 on a 172.000, only thing iv changed was the timing belt,  now im onto the clutch this wed.

its a y plate...!!! literally registered just before the change to 51 (late august) It was a commute car for many years, doing at least 160miles a day, so about than 60-70% i would say is motorway miles.


had 2 cam belts, third is next week, 1 clutch, 1 wishbone, 2 s electors, obv copious oil/air/fuel filter changes. apart from that, nothing major. reconned the maf and the turbo pipework at the local vw specialist, but that wasnt a big job really.

We want the highest mileage vw on here...let's have a 'top ten' and see if anyone on here is running more miles than me...?!

It's funny how only the bigger engined cars make more miles! The components aren't thrashed so bad

Wow, first time I could be in some kind of "top" list on this forum! Add me in with 146,600 miles 1.8T. Original clutch/engine/turbo still running fine.


Vagwinner, if you copy the list and edit your very first post on this thread it will be easy to see where people stand on this list.

If mine makes it past Vagwinner's 220,000 I will be more than happy!  At that point, surely it makes more sense to keep the car for posterity..  Vagwinner what's your top 3 secrets to keeping it running?!
