With the Mk7 being the last VW diesel to be sold in the US, is there any effort to document the odometer readings on these cars to track their existence?


I'm 30 miles short of 100K, and hope to run the car for another 200K. I bought the car as a daily commuter and have faced no issues to date. Others have likely completed the same distance or further, but may have experienced issues or failures along the way. I know some of the other car forums do something similar where they have the running lists and log milestones. Is there any interest in this?

126k miles in my wife's GSW and 96k miles on my 2015 Passat...no issues, knock on wood. Both bought second hand about 2 years ago.

Somewhere around 128,500. No major issues and only scheduled maintenance so far. I'm gearing up to tackle the timing belt myself (feels daunting).

Only minor issue is a failed HVAC actuator at around 80,000 miles. I only get air from the upper vents and windshield defrost. The replacement actuator was cheap but to replace it Ill have to pull apart the whole dash. It isn't annoying enough for me to attempt that just yet.

2015 GSW with 139,000 miles. Replaced struts and shocks and failed HVAC actuator. Scheduled maintenance, some by pros and some by me.

Our Golf is at 180000 km or 112500 miles. Never thought of it as a "high mileage" though. Just replaced the in-tank fuel pump because it has been noisy since we bought it last year, did not find any debris in it or in the fuel filter. Replaced the brakes in all corners recently, the rotors had some life left but the pads were gone so I replaced everything.

Just chiming in with 120,400 miles. Had the timing belt done when the water pump started to fail at 105K miles. I'll probably replace the pads this summer. I still look forward to driving it- like the day I bought it. Never got around to doing the emissions recall stuff (because I liked the way it ran)- not sure if that is going to make a difference in longevity.

My Golf is just about to turn 180k miles. Under warranty issues, DEF injector, engine harness. Out of warranty DPF pressure sensors literally just happened, suspension, brakes, timing belt

Not stock, but sitting on 97,500 miles at the moment and have yet to have a single issue with the car that hasn't been self-inflicted. I purchased in January of '16 with about 17k miles on it.

Stock @ 111k miles.

Since purchase @74k: Timing Belt/Water pump @88k (pump leaked), Control Arms/End Links, and Blower Motor. Current needs: Struts, Oil Leaks within the past 10k, and the clutch is a little iffy feeling at times (engagement shudder when warm).
