I had a Jetta Turbo diesel I finally sold at 485,000 miles on the odometer.
The odometer hadn't worked in 2 or 3 years so I don't know how many miles it had on it.

I only got rid of it 'cause it was soooo rusted out after 18 Michigan winters.

I ran mine on home heating oil (no road tax )

Obviously I really didn't care about what came out the tail pipe.

Except when someone tail gated me.

I could step on it, the turbo would wind up and all kinds of nasty black stuff chased the tail gater away.

And get 50 mpg doing it!

I really miss that car.
