236k on a 03 Wagon and almost at 90k on 13 Passat. With covid and work from home not a lot of miles have been put on the wagon, we mainly use the Passat now. According to my fuelly log last time I filled up the wagon was in October, wow I need to take it out for a drive.

I think it shows in my signature ... Last week 1700+ miles and this week 1700 miles already. I fill up 2 times a week on average. 299K on the wagon is accurate which is my daily driver. The sedan is sitting at 349k miles.

Conceived my youngest boy in my @369k miles & Delivered on way to Hospital @ 379k miles
Avg 51 mpg w/cruise set at 77 when making my yearly trip to Milwaukee from town (300miles) outside temp 60.
Malone Stage 3 w/the bigger Turbo (gobs of more torque after) installed on the 06 brm jetta 5 man. Pre-malone it was 45-48 mpg
Uses less than qt of oil between changes of 6k
Have had the upgrade for about a year and the stock clutch is getting toast.
My mech warned me it would go, and recommends a stage 2.
He quoted me $1200 complete, but we can do it for about $200 in parts. (USA Made of COURSE!!!)

DaFuq? Do you get paid by the mile or something? That's A LOT of driving.
Agreed that's alot of miles .... i'm curious too!

The most miles I have ever heard of anybody driving in a week was the Alexa route driver from pa to va...

He drove 635 miles a day, 7 days a week for weeks on end ... yes, not a typo!

I do delivery work also but THAT is truly hardcore ( I used to do one of the shorter runs for the same company but it was "only" 535 miles per day ....

I only did that twice or at most three times a week because i was part time ).

In 2009 I was at a GTG in Jacksonville FL and a guy was there with his 2005 Jetta Wagon getting it tuned. He had 385K on it. He was a medical courier, did something like Jax/Tampa/Orlando/Daytona/Jax every day.

That would a sweet gig if you were getting $0.75/m + car allowance + covered expenses & maintenance.... ;)

133k on my 12 jsw dsg. I average about 40 with it. Driving about 4k a month. Haven't had a lick of trouble with it. Granted I was stage 2 a month after I got it. Then emissions fixed since last winter. I really wanna stage 3 with Malone's turbo... But 5 grand.... Next year..

~4000 miles in a year since my wife retired last August and the kids are back in the Charlotte area. Going to have to start thinking about going to a 12 month maintenance program rather than by miles.
