Pah dont worry about diesel and miles... so long as it been serviced, and its not close to its major service they will go forever. Im pretty sure diesels ripen with age. My old skoda with VAG's very very good 1.9 PD TDI 130 engine felt amazing at 135,000 miles. Rev'd very cleanly and pulled nigh on 2 tons of skoda superb like a train whilst still doing 50mpgMay be Time for sort-of an update after one year:
The car is still mine (unlike the Dacia) , it runs great, handles well... just like a proper car should do.
There is only one problem : Germany doesn't like my car anymore:
We've got a new type of fuel here called 'Super E10' which contains 10% of Bio-Ethanol in it. They say its good for the envoirement, but in fact its only a reason to raise fuelprices.
Luckily 90% of all cars can be driven on that fuel...... guess which can't?
Correct, the hyper-modern-FSI-Engines ... thats why I have to pay ~1,70? for a Liter of Super Plus and I can't see the point of keeping this car :'( It looks like I'll have to buy a diesel-powered car again, cheeper to run, you know
After some weeks of looking for one, i can tell you that there are few nicely equiped dieselcars with low mileage , and if there is one you can't pay the price
Move here, we don't even have the option of buying E10... and every station carries E5.May be right, but my car has got a 'Standheizung' (google means pre-heating) which isn't compatible with E10... my VW Dealer said I shouldn't use it at all, it isn't compatible etc.
And because I love this car so much, I won't drive it on E10.
My next car will ppb. be a Golf VI or a Touran, we'll see. In future more space may be needed and I dont want to buy a new car every year !
I was actually being the exact opposite of serious, I was being sarcastic. Check out my sidebar, I actually own a MkVI myself.@Shawn : Are you serious? Afaik the Mk-VI is just a restyled MkV with new Engines ... so nothing bad so far
