      Is it just me or did I get the car that the Quality Control guy was too stoned to check?

      im at 45,xxx on my 03. i put about 22,xxx on it in about a year and a half and i haven't had any problems so far. hope she stays that way [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      I have another question for you guys though, how many of you plan on keeping your car until it pretty much dies, or basically, forever?
      I love my car and would like to keep it for as long as I possibly can. When it dies I will most likely rebuild it, even if I get other cars along the way.
      Anyone else feel like this, or do you just plan on keeping it until you get an upgrade?

      I feel the same way about mine. It's my first VW that I've ever owned and I definitely see no reason to get rid of it with the kind of potential that it has. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I've put way too much money into the darn thing and still owe money on it - For most of its life I owed more than it is worth. I've been looking to get another car, but I'll probably just run her into the ground as my loan will soon be paid off. I'm waiting for current Audi A5s to come down in price, the new CTSs to come down, or am going to buy a new V-6 Camero.
      Besides, the 24V VR6s are quite unique in the car world. What other two door hatch has an inline 6 with a 6 speed manual? How many other small cars have Automatic climate control & automatic wipers? New GTIs don't even have that. Hopefully the old girl will continue for a long time (especially considering the repairs I do). Besides I heart the 24V VR6. I would have to buy a R32, Audi A3, or Passat 3.6 to get one again (NO Toureg).

      120,000 miles on an '03 GTI. Bought it new, with 4 miles on the clock.
      In the past 10K miles, I've replaced the slave cylinder, clutch, battery, wheel bearings, and O2 sensors. Waiting for a nice weekend for an overdue front suspension rebuild, and I'll probably do the water pump this summer. Fortunately, I've been able to fix every issue that popped up myself so far (knock on wood), and the only 'unacceptable' problem has been the slave cylinder failure.
      The only thing that would replace it foreseeable future would be a nice C5 S6 Avant...

      I'm about to hit the big 6 digits... So far, she's eaten two clutches (not my fault, one was caused by the slave cylinder leaking hydraulic fluid), fried one coil, and wore out one water pump. Serpentine belt is next...
