@Matu Fujiwara totally agree. Have never understood why people aspire to have the most common cars on the road, ie BMW and Audi. Surely they are the opposite of aspirational. It’s like people “aspiring” to live in a half million pound house on a new build estate in Milton Keynes; nobody does it.

American cars use cheap metal, they’re rust buckets - even Fords in the UK were rust buckets back in the day! German cars are solid. This car probably never lived near the coast though and was probably garaged overnight etc etc... if you look after a car, it’ll look after you!

This NEEDS to be restored, and it deserves a bloody good clean, impressively good state for the mileage, I wouldn't even give it 250000... I have a bit of a medium-mileage hero myself, these vehicles have deserved and won their way to keep going on the road instead of falling to the scrapheap, plus less than 2000 quid is not so much.

@rob malcolm ofcourse the life of a vehicle also can be determined by how the driver drives it and in what conditions the driver is driving in...... for example for where I live in San Antonio, TX, one would do well to drive a car more gentle as the heats we can get during the summer can kill a car quickly..... same if I lived closer to the coast where the salt in the air could cause the frame and such to rust out and have abnormal wear, but someone who lives further north or in a climate where it doesn't get as hot can get away with driving a bit more agressively

I currently have Golf TDI with over 650K on it. The odometer quit working at 1000000 KM or 621K so the exact mileage is an estimate. It's in excellent shape. I have other customers with anywhere from 300k to over 500K. My "mileage champion" was a 99 New Beetle with over 780K miles

@Xynos Tasos Yeah but it wasn't really even VW but Bosch, who have done Diesel pumps, injectors and computers for many many vehicles
Xynos Tasos
Xynos Tasos Prije 5 dana
@rkan2 correction: VW got Common Rail technology IP from FIAT but INDIRECTLY. In fact, not every TDI engine is common rail, but most after 2010 actually are. ..."After research and development by the Fiat Group, the design was acquired by the German company Robert Bosch GmbH for completion of development and refinement for mass production."... So VW has acquired FIAT's common rail technology through Bosch.

@The Trashman uk uses miles. 2.0TDI s in Europe are stinky, shakey and bulletproof. 1.9tdi's even more stinky more shakey and absolutely refuse to die. Eastern Europe is full of 1.9ALH mk4 golfs with 600k that still have that much left into them.

The TDI engine is bulletproof because VW licensed the IP from FIAT's JTD engine. Which is trully indestructible.

Had a 2001 A4 b5 1.9 tdi with 190.000 km on the meter. It drove like a charm and ran great! I found out later the meter had been worked on, so it had at least 450.000 km’s. Drove like new. Had 2.0 TDI’s with half that mileage which needed new turbo’s, heads, etc etc, not to speak of the newer petrol engines…

The oil pump was chain driven until 2006 then they changed the sometimes failure prone chain to an interference drive. This was even more unreliable, and in 2009 they increased the depth of the shaft fitting and returned to an improved chain drive. I doubt anyone who has a VW 2.00 Diesel manufactured between 2006 and 2009 would see 100,000 miles.

All said and done looks in pretty impressive shape for under 2000 quid to have a brilliant car that can easily do a million miles, if not more. Definitely add it to your long term fleet and is even practical enough to serve as a daily driver or crew vehicle. How about another Miles type series after this lockdown is over. Maybe a timed lap around the Nurburgring

Providing these PD engines are given the correct spec quantum longlife oil regularly they will run to colossal mileages without issue - they sound a bit tractor like but go very well when remapped. Probably the best diesel engines ever made.
Corbin Pearce
Corbin Pearce Prije godine
I’m actually not too surprised the car was in as good shape as it was for the mileage. A car doesn’t get to 500k without having proper care, and on the flip side, I think mileage on a car is potentially endless as long as you fix things and keep it clean. That doesn’t mean it’s economically viable to push a car on that long, but it’s possible.
Nigel Barratt
Nigel Barratt Prije godine
Glad I watched this - I now know that my A6 2.0 TDi PD is only just run in with 303,000 miles on the clock. I had it at 17,000 miles still under warranty and it's as good as it was then. The secret is best fuel, best oil and best servicing. These things really are bullet-proof if you look after them! It has no DPF and the last smoke reading was 0.03 compared to the pass limit of 3.0, at nearly 300k miles, and the top's never been off the engine except for one glow plug.

The quattro system in these are amazing, never once got it stuck and super fun to slide around with during winter! Too bad there's just too many problems with old VAG cars

Be fair, the overall condition of the car given the mileage is very good really and yes it has been very well looked after by the previous owners. Lets face facts MOST cars do not get anywhere near this mileage and look half as good as this one. I used to drive to drive a 2010 Toyota Hi Ace ( D4D ) which when it was recently sold had about 1.100 000 ( 1.1 million ) kms new owners are very happy and find it hard to believe the mileage, burned no oil that i am aware of, started first time every time, and it still had a bit of grunt, performed well.

About 7 years ago I bought a passatt 1.9 pd, same engine as this audi, it had 250k on it when I got it and over 300k when I sold it about 18 months later. I've seen it driving around recently so it's fair to assume that it's probably done 500k by now, if not it must be getting close. I know a guy that runs skoda octavias as taxis and it's not unusual for them to go past 500k. The pd engine is brilliant and probably the last diesel engine that hasn't got loads of stupid emissions crap on it. By contrast my Renault traffic has done 120k and the dpf is blocked. I've been told by 3 different mechanics that it's beyond repair and I'm lucky to have got that sort of mileage out of it? If I find out that is true I will be royally pissed off, 120k over 4 years in a commercial is very light use and I will never buy another one but I don't know of a decent alternative, it would seem that all modern diesels are crap?

I had a mate with an Austin Princess. When he had it serviced at 63K he was advised to get rid quick. Apparently everything was worn out. Even the throttle linkages were sloppy. No wonder there are none left, - even in Cyprus!

I want to know how the previous owner decided to put on a new timing belt at 500000 miles. Insanity.

Nice car. I'd leave the brakes until the pads need changing and fix other bits now and again. Air con is useful but not essential.

I keep forgeting that 500k miles on a clock is rare in the Western countryes. My 530k VW Bora is still going strong on our bad roads. Its used as a work car so last 200k was with about 400 kg of tools in it.

Looking at the service records, this car went long distances between yearly oil changes, as is customary in Europe. Flies in the face of all the North Americans who insist that oil should be changed every 2nd day. Ok, that's an exaggeration, but so is changing oil every 3000miles/5000kms. There's a reason why quick lube franchises are practically non-existent outside North America.

My dad's Jeep Cherokee has about 460,000 miles on it, never broke down yet. My old Camaro has about 740,000 on the body, had an engine swap at about 400,000 miles. Not too shabby eh?

Very impressive. My 2013 Jaguar XF is just about to turn 310,000 Miles. Would be great to know if there are many other "modern" cars of a similar age that have covered this sort of mileage. Look after them, and they will look after you 👍🏼

had a B6 1.8t A4 once, £250 and was three different shades of grey. Absolutely loved all of its 197k miles on it. Would definitely buy another one

I’m curious as to how much of the work HAS to be done to pass inspection. Here in Texas airbags don’t have to be fixed and AC does not need to be working to pass inspection so remove those items from your estimate then the cost shrinks a lot. It’s kinda ironic that the service book is filled with all the expensive dealer service work but the egr valve was never serviced in half a million miles what’s up with that?

A lot of the super high miles cars have been long distance highway commuters, and that is really the easiest miles on a cars I've had 200k (km) cars come in that where far better than 60k km cars that lived in the city when I was a mechanic. Also such commuter cars tends to have fairly good service history due to often being work related travel, or just that they spend so much time in the car they like it to be in good condition.

I was actually told by a garage to put tape over the airbag light or remove the light itself not too long ago so it would pass its MOT

The sad thing with cars like this is that after all these years and miles of service, it will be one relatively small but critical component failure (disables the car or puts a warning light on that fails the MOT) that eventually sends it to the scrapyard. High mileage cars in the UK are worthless, and components on modern cars are expensive. I'd love to see this one restored, but it's still only going to be worth £2.50 even if perfect. In the UK people don't want high mileage cars unless they are pennies.

Much like the other comments, give it a new lease of life, have the two high mileage heroes together. I love 00's VAG.
