120150.....got it a little over a year ago with 95000
I'm at 75,864 now.
I haven't had any issues yet.
I've never had a check engine light that wasn't directly caused by me.
I've done some preventive maintenance--spark plugs a couple times, coilpacks, fuel filter, air filter, oil changes, transmission fluid changes, and MAF cleaning.
I fixed a coolant leak caused by the thermostat housing (plastic holding a gasket had broken off).
Just replace all 6 of my ignition coils and spark plugs after cylinder misfires (cylinder #2).
Replace front brake pads at 70K and rear brakes at 110K
Replace my left control arm and ball joint (ball joint was bad and the control arm bushings were shot... easier to replace the whole control arm than to replace the bushings)
I have a strut mount issue that I need to fix (noise when I change direction (pull out of a parking space for example)
Replaced Normal maintenance otherwise...
it's been a bumpy ride .....
lost 3 coil packs over a short period quite expensive to replace. keeping an eye on the remaining three.
front lambda sensor went open circuit (heating cct). got a 'generic' replacement with some nifty plastic 'barrels' allowing the wiring to be spliced.
MAS failed causing rough shifts
replaced GCU (got 'communication error' messages via VAG-COM)
lost reverse, 2nd, 3rd. replaced n92 (got 2nd and 3rd back) , n88 on order to get R back
LCD in instrument cluster went screwey (a few lines went blank) - got a new LCD fitted
car has been standing for close to 2 years with the 'box problem requiring some research (and spare time)
needs a good cleanup too

2001 VW Sharan (2.8 24V) Highline Auto
new GCU, n88, n89 & n92
i'm at 111,111miles today.
second owner, bought her when she was at 96,000. engine continues to be strong as ever. no oil burning. but i have had tranny syncro issues, and motor mount/ tranny mount/ and dogbone bushings are going bad. as well as the suspension bushings. i had one individual coil go bad, so i replaced all 6. and i've gone thru 6 sets of tires. hahaha. lots of track days. havent had to change the brakes yet. but they are due. and then i had a breather hose that comes off the valve cover split or rip. so i took it off completely. and i feel like i gained power
Living fast in the the slow lane. Still have a vw though. Sometimes that's just enough
~111,000 miles, w/~70,000 miles boosted! (who can beat that second number?)
Still all stock block w/headspacer.
