Not too bad. I took my 2004 VW Jetta TDI out of regular business service today. 7 years and 286,000 miles and it looks and drives pretty much like the day I bought it and still gets 42MPG. Followed the VW recommended service schedule to the 'T'. The only thing that ever failed was a turbocharger at around 200,000. Sweet car. And the KBB retail value is still $8,400!
