This is why I'm steering clear of the TDI version. While I definitely prefer the extra torque, and its noticeable, at my budget you're looking at tdi's with more than 120,000kms on them and I'm wondering when the turbo is going to go.
I'm hoping the petrol will be lower cost of maintenance in the long run even if fuel consumption is a bit higher. I've seen some terrible ones out there already so fingers crossed I get a good one!!!
We've had plenty of VWs in the past an no issues with repairs or reliability so hoping that trend continues
