True cost of all that mileage
By dfurdock on
2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
2006 Jetta TDI package 2.
183,000 miles. Maintenance costs are high,
approx $400 DSG trans fluid service every 40,000 miles. Timing belt every 80,000 miles approx. $1,100.
Syn. oil changes about $80.
My dual mass flywheel just failed over $1,500. Also turbo failing approx $2,000.
I am repairing all of the above because the car gets more mpg than most hybrids. I just hope that the dreaded camshaft failure doesn't occur.
I will drive this one for a bit longer, buy a new TDI and hope for better luck.
In spite of all the above I still love to drive my TDI.
