High Milage Mk 3
« on: July 01, 2016, 07:34:51 PM »
Hi, was looking at a 2010 Mk3 Ghia recently. Great condition car but milage put me off a bit, over 210,000 miles. Company car so its motorway miles with service history, some bits replaced, turbo, egr. I,m thinking if the money is right and a service history and it has obviously been looked after then maybe it should not be scary? Any views? Thanks. By the way, its a 2.0 tdci.

thry can be prone to DMF and clutch failure but so can most diesels these days. Also injectors are a common fault on 2.0tdci high milers and pricey to buy but they might have been changed already?

I would probably take a punt if it was a cracking price.
