My 03 Ibiza TDi is almost on 226k miles.
It was 10 years old in July and I've owned it for just over 7 years. By the time i'd driven it home, it had just ticked over to 24k miles, so I've put on almost 202k miles in 7 years.
Problems have been pretty few and apart from a new air-con compressor have been nice and cheap.
Service interval is 10k miles, but since about 120k miles, I've only been getting it done every 15k miles and it doesn't seem to have suffered for it.
It's still on original exhaust, clutch & DMF, turbo etc...
It's only on it's second set of front discs and pads (!)
I had a nearside front wheel bearing go at 38k miles, but the other three are all original.
Broke a spring last year, but only the flat section at the bottom
Popped a turbo pipe off a few years ago, which was apparently down to the wrong clip being fitted originally
New air-con compressor at around 150k miles
Front wiper mechanism needed a clean & re-grease last winter
Got it in for a service tomorrow and I think it needs a new radiator thermostat, which seems to be stuck open as the temp gauge doesn't read as high as normal (started happening a fortnight ago). And I want them to check the battery voltage, as it's the original battery and for the last two winters I've been thinking it's a bit sluggish to start on cold mornings.....10 year from a battery seems quite good to me.
Would love a spangly new car (my wife has recently bought a 12 reg Ibiza FR - 2.0 TDi), but I want to see how far this one will go. 300k shouldn't be too much bother I don't think, but will probably realistically only keep it for a couple more years before getting rid (so another 50k or so).
