It actually did for a while, could only get 42 stock, last rebuild with the cut down pistons took a little bit of work in the timing maps to get it back up to the 48 it's been since I got the maps nailed down the first time

I had 60k on my new purchase 09 Jetta TDI when I traded it in on my new purchase 2013 Passat TDI.

I had 60k on my 2013 Passat TDI when I traded it in towards my used 2015 Passat TDI.

My 2015 Passat TDI had 55k when I bought it and is now at 60k. Looking forward to at least 100k miles on this one.

I am really not racking up the miles like a used to.

200K Original Turbo, Camshaft (which looks like new!), Brakes!
2nd Flywheel (120k), Driver's door harness, Injector hardness, alternator pulley, 3rd set of tires, one front wheel bearing.

Only took me 7 years to get to 164k, I moved much closer and work from home about 50% of the time now too.
