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.
