Bought this Jetta last year for $800,

[Linked Image from fototime.com]

Only repair was a $400 turbo rebuild. I wouldn't hesitate driving it to the other coast today. Wouldn't surprise me if somebody takes it to 500K and I expect to get around $3,000 for it, but with 55 mpg I'll keep driving it myself.

You expect to get $3000 for a Jetta with 324,000 miles? You're a great salesman!

For someone that drives Subarus, I can understand your point.

OP-

For many buying a car with 200,000 miles and putting another 100,000 miles on it is the pinnacle of automotive excellence on BITGO!

Not for me......but for many.

My Mazda had no problem that cost me over $100 to correct until it was well beyond 300k. It went on to over twice that, with some repairs. My brother's Avalon is still going strong (except the paint!) at ~350k with no major repairs. Why panic at only 200k if a vehicle has been reasonably maintained?

I don't recall seeing many of ANY make being sold with over 300k miles, regardless of market share...

I think he’s saying he has no interest in buying any vehicle with high mileage and then driving it even further. I consider ANY vehicle with 200k miles or more a beater, regardless of quality.

It's a TDI, it'll definitely sell for that.

Not a scientific search by any means but I checked Ebay for sold VW and Subaru over 300,000 miles and found these two VWs but not a single Subaru,
