      12V and that's not that much for a '94.

      Mine's still young at 102,000 miles on my '03 GLI. I guess since my VW broke the 100,000 mile mark I have earned the right to post here.

I replaced the clutch at 165K but only because the master and slave cylinders went bad and I figured since it was apart I would go ahead and replace the clutch at the same time. In the time I have owned it I have had to replace the water pump , fuel pump and 2 ignition coils. been a great cars and has been worry free for the last35K miles since doing the clutch! I still average 27 MPG with a mix of city and highway driving and have seen as much as 32 MPG with just straight highway driving. It has been a great car. Loving it still!!



      Edit: I saw someone ask about the timing chain... I am still running the original and there is still no noise.
      I'm seriously considering getting into a low mile GLI Vr6, is most people's experiences from these 24v jetta's pretty good. I came from 2000 vr6, and had it for 5 years, the only issue I had was a clutch bearing I think came apart while driving, other than my clutch issue, no problems from 76k when I got it to 149k when I got out of it.

      Used to drive 50+ miles a day, now I barely get 75 a week. so the journey to 200,000 has been extended.

      Didn't take a picture, actually missed the photo op, I reset the trip just like last time and missed it!!

      Anyways nothing much has happened to the car since 222222km, rear wheel sensor, hit a pot hole and messed up a control arm, other than that running like a top.

      When i had my 24v i could only get 320-350 per tank. Thats why its gone. mk3 now
      All mk4s smell a bit like crayons/candles. All mk3s smell like hot plastic and crayons. All mk2s smell like water damage, and all mk1s smell like mold and electrical fires.
      It's a VW thing.

      my 24v vr6 is a mess, but my brothers 24v vr6 is a beast.. his 2003 2.8 24v vr6 just hit 250,000 miles yesterday.... all he did to it for last 10yrs is he changed the clutch, serpentine belt, oil change, spark plug change, coil change, maf change... few other little OEM replacements due to over time wear and tear. and he never had any other problems
