2001 TDI stock with 379,000 miles.
Nothing major has ever gone wrong. Due for timing belt change in 1,000. I did one on my MK3, but I see the MK4 is harder to do. Not sure if I can do it without a car lift? I'll have to review some instructions/videos.
Just replaced MAF...lots more power! Recently cleaned intake, changed vacuum hoses, fuel filter, cleaned out actuator, and turbo, replaced seals on vacuum pump (which stealership said couldn't be done). I do need shocks/struts and all the bushings, etc for front suspension. Sigh. Lots to do but only because I haven't had a place or $ to keep up with general maintenance as needed. But I believe the timing belt should take priority. And I'm going to do it--this car has been so reliable!
Love my TDIs
