Back in 1981 I put 7,500 miles on our new Jetta (1.7 liter gasser, automatic) during the first two months of ownership. Picked it up on Memorial Day weekend in Luxembourg and drove back to Bremerhaven, Germany. Oh the gas gauge didn't work so I just topped it off after about 175 miles. On Monday took it into the VW dealer and got it fixed. About three weeks later we left for a 30-day camping trip around Scandinavia.

The fleet:
2005 Jetta Wagon "Cranberry" (bought July 2011)
2004 Toyota Prius (bought August 2004)
1990 Mazda Miata (bought July 1989)
