We have 121,000 miles on 2000 TDI
automatic. The car has truly held up
well for us and we plan to continue
driving at this pace for years to
come. Only a few complaints. Front
door windows fell inside doors
(replaced under warranty). Was
surprised about the need to change
timing belt so often (40,000 miles
w/auto trans). Front bumper cover too
low-will pull off if you park too close
to curb. Also a little crowded in back
seat. Will buy another one!!!
Fuel economy (40 mpg w/auto trans)while
running 80 mph with dash air on!
Performance a real surprise. Ride
Design a better timing belt for longer
replacement interval. Beef up
attachment points for front bumper cover
