Default 1999.5-2005 Jetta Survey

Today i rode in a 2000 1.8TJetta with 375,000 miles on it. I was just curious is there anyone in this forum who can top this? or does anyone come close? How does it run? I was suprised a Jetta could live this long.....I know TDI can live with alot on it but 375k is still alot.

Any engine can last forever if you replace all the parts the are worn as the car ages...bottom end top end belts accessories...you can have a chassis with as many miles as possible...but what counts is how many miles the original engine had on it.

As far as i know he said that he replaced all the belts, spark plug wires, and gaskets. He's also on his 2nd transmission.
