TDI(s): 03 Golf GLS

I am the original owner of a 2003 Golf GLS TDI. I have done all the maintenance since I purchased it. At 316,000 miles I rebuilt the engine and manual transmission. Currently the vehicle has 376,000 miles and gets 46 mpg w/o AC on and approximately 42 mpg with AC on. The VW diesel requires you be vigilant as to the maintenance. Stealerships do not know how to work on these cars! Local shops that really know these vehicles are rare. As I have experienced, made the mistake of having a independent VW shop do the timing belt only to have to sue them to replace the head and the pistons due to their not tightening the timing belt tensioner properly. The dirty little secret to longevity of the VW diesel is you gotta do the maintenance yourself to make sure it's done right.

Hey,
Now I'm up to 425,000 miles, and still get an average near 50mpg since I did all the mods in my signature.

I had a 2001 beetle tdi auto with 318,000 miles. The engine had a runaway and knocked two holes in the block. Even then I parted it got 95% of my money back.
