I've gto a '97 TDI that I've piled on
175K miles. I've had a few electrical
problems and the alternator was
replaced with a rebuilt. But this car
gets 50 MPG and has great pickup. The
heater is so hot it will burn your face
and the a/c will freeze you out. I hope
to keep running it for a couple
hundered thousand more.
Fun to drive
The electrical shorts have always been
flaky. They are numerous.
