    Default How does your Jetta run- How many miles?

    My 96 GL has 153k miles on it and runs PERFECTLY and pulls hard!

    I realized today that mechanically my Jetta is like new- Almost makes me scared to do a vr6/1.8T swap!

    What about your rides? What have you had to replace? Show them JDMs that EDM is more reliable!

    My car runs like a new car. Got it in Feb. of this year and went through it replacing everything that was worn or out of spec.. I get about 27 mpg in the city and really like the handeling of the car.

    It is a '87 Jetta GL, 1.8, auto, and now has 51,500 miles on it...Smithy
    Don't take life too seriously...you'll never live through it.

    70,xxx miles and the VW mechanic said that now that my fuel pump is fixed it's running at 100%, all the numbers are right where they should be

    137k miles on my 01 1.8t, still drives like it did at 40k. I have a tick under 200k on my 91 16v GTi, and it still runs amazingly somehow. good enough to catch those corvettes on road courses
