Last night on my way home from Wisconsin:

Getting close to 400K! Not bad FE on that tank, either, 52 MPG.

Car's 17 years old. Bought it new, so those miles are pretty much all me.

I turned 396,000 yesterday morning, so I'm about 396,150 as of now, give or take a few.

Like IBW, bought mine new so the miles on it are essentially all mine.

307,000kms since I bought mine new in 2012. I think that converts to 191,875 miles.

Finally hit the 300k mark today! Bought it 1 1/2 years old with 21k and it took a little over 18 years to hit the mark. I am not a commuter and so the Jetta is a trip car.

Just changed oil, checked other fluids and will be heading out for another trip (3500 miles approx.) next week.

The other owners with much higher miles keep me trucking after them!

320 k , no real issues but at 315k i had to replace the injection pump (faults) and I did injectors at the same time not knowing I needed to but wanted to ( turns out one was starting to dribble a little bit).

Other than timing belt changes and fluid changes nothing else has really needed to be done with the car knock on wood!

Now at 337,640!

I had to replace the original clutch and flywheel at 318,000. The clutch was actually in great shape....The flywheel was chattering at idle because the springs gave up. I installed the LUK kit. Works Great.

Might as well have a little fun since IM new to the forum and new car to me.

I just bought a 2015 Hatch TDI 6m with 450 miles in the beginning of Oct 19.
just clocked over 1900 miles on the clock currently.

so I have a long way to go to catch up to you guys.
