Default Highest odometer reading on TDI PD 150K or 200K ??

I'm trying to decide on the new and improved or tried and true. PD vs. pre PD. There is very little maintenance info available and I don't trust the dealership wrench jockeys.
So what is the track record for the PD's or have they not been out long enough to tell.

Almost 26K miles on my '05 A4 Jetta. It's typical to have a few bugs to work out on new VWs, once fixed, you should have many trouble-free miles.

Nonsense, the PD cars have been available in the rest of the world since 1999. The cars are no more problematic than the VEP cars - - I'd like to think they'd be superior once they get the software figured out for the USA cars.

I still favor the earlier cars as they typically achieve superior MPGs since they are not as clean as the newest offerings.


There was somebody down South that had nearly 100k miles, but it was very difficult to get any intelligible info from that person.

I only have 48k, too early to tell... I'll let you know in a couple of years, at 36k/year I only have 4 more to go to break 200k.

Mine PD150 is now 4 years old and 120.000 kms. Around here there some gossip about Mk3's going zero at 300.000 kms

It's not gossip. The odometers in the A3 and B4 cars roll back to 0 when they hit 300,000. (Miles or KM, just whenever the display gets to 300,000)
