Your HPFP has lasted 140K miles. I would say it has proven itself to be reliable. Why would you want to risk replacing a perfectly reliable part with one that may or not be reliable? If it isn't broke, don't fix it.

Hello Everyone. I currently own a 1985 Golf Diesel. But due to winter problems would like to buy a 2009 Jetta TDI. There's one i found that has 245,000 miles on it. What kind of issues would i possibly face getting one with this high of miles? Or should i NOT get this due to the miles?

09 is a touchy year for many users on the forum. First year of the new engine design for vw known as common rail. It also had a 1 piece Diesel particulate filter (dpf) which is fine at first glance, but makes replacing (or upgrading to the 2 piece, which is what 2010 and up used) quite costly. I imagine with that many miles it's been driven nearly all of it's life on highways, so it probably has a lower particulate load, but if i were you i'd have it looked at by a diesel guru what the filter loading is at. Does it have the DSG or manual transmission? Has it had its high pressure fuel pump replaced? Timing belts replaced at regular intervals?

The question to be answered is what is the price? Has regular maintenance been done ( confirmed by receipts)? With this many miles, I wouldn't pay more that $4,500 for the car.

This is under the category of I did not know that.

noticed for the first time today, that the key has an LED that lights up when you press the button. I just don't think I ever looked at the key when I pressed the button. lots of times look at the car, to make sure it locks when i leave it, or unlock it so my wife can get some gizmo she left in the car, just do not ever remember looking at the key.

guess that is from learning to touch type. don't look at what my fingers do, but what the results are.

this is up there with the steering column that goes in and out, and the lock on the gas door that operates with the car door locks.

THANK YOU to everyone that took the time to write out, direct towards links, recorded video, etc... on how to change the timing belt on my 2009 Jetta TDI (bought it with 129k and after some checking I found out the tb wasn't changed or no documentation. at 120k). It was definitely a learning experience with my last vehicle being a 2002 Jeep Liberty (owned for 13 years, did all maintenance but due to living in occupied californistan the air ****s require the stealership to sell and replace the 3 catalyic converters for $3000 which is much more than the vehicle was worth with 250k). But alas it's finished and now I must learn how to change the oil (oil canister with filter like an old 53 dodge pick up I had in high school) and fuel filter (same type canister with filter inside). Anyway, I learned A LOT and saved even more money. Btw, I even paid 9.99 to join myturbodiesel.com to support them and I'd like to do the same for this site. If you can't tell I'm very appreciative of the work that was put into these sites to help us all.
Once again, thank you.

Thoughts/suggestions.... (moderator- plz move post if you feel it belongs elsewhere)
Mine went at 157k and I thought I was good. I would recommend either you replace the unit or at a minimum buy 2micron's contain kit to keep the metal from going everywhere.

I figured that I since have a 2009 and a 2010 TDI, I would post a list of issues that I have had with these two vehicles. Unfortunately most are documented on this site as known issues with these cars.

2009:

A/C Compressor died and filled system with metal
Bad glow plug
Drivers side door electrical gremlin - Common VW issue
Radio died - CRC HARDWARE FAULT
Intake flap valve - P2015
Exhaust flap valve - P047F
High Pressure Fuel Pump died and filled fuel system with metal- Well known, VW warranty extended to 10yr/120,000 miles

2010:

Sun roof drains leaked - VW lost a class action for this item
Touch screen radio died
Intake flap valve - P2015
Exhaust flap valve - P047F
DFP cracked - P0407 w/ black soot in the exhaust


No particular order and I don't want to document how much all of these have cost me. Most of the issues happened outside of the original 3yr/36,000 mile warranty and VW denied repair. Based on that and general reliability, I would be hesitant to ever purchase another VW. This is coming from previously owning a Toyota that never had a single issue in the 10 years I owned the car.

I've looked around the site and am trying to learn more about my 2010 Jetta 6M. I just picked it up a couple weeks ago - has 122k on it. Occasionally the car feels like it's running rough - at idle on a cold start and even idling at a stop light. When it acts like this it even feels like while I'm cruising that it's hesitating (feels like a misfire in an old V8). It's not consistently doing it every day. I like the car so far but I'm scratching my head when it comes to this lumpy idle/hesitation driving. Can anyone direct me to a link to read up on this? What other info can I provide here? I've driven an 03 ALH for the past 8 years so getting used to a 2010 is like a whole new world.

Wondering how many '09 Common Rail early posters are left on the Board who still have their TDI. Trying to decide what to do now that the class action appears to be settled. I imagine many of us have similar experiences, mileage and buyback numbers. I still really like my TDI a lot (it's been very good to me in many ways) and I never had any of the major or $$ problems others have) in over 121k miles.

Thing is, I've got even more wear and tear on me than my TDI, (although both well maintained) and don't do as much mileage as I used to. I think I'd really like some of those new electronic safety features VW and Subaru in particular have as options these days. The $12-13k could get me pretty close on a gasser.

Still here with our '10 Jetta TDI....not sure for how long though. Wondering about all the rumors I've been reading about the possible buy back, etc...w/165k miles and counting I'm not expecting a windfall of cash but possibly a good deal on a new Golf would be entertained...

106500 on my 2009. Will probably keep for another 10K; looking at GTI or Golf SE gasser.
