I have 2010 with the CJAA (140k miles), as well as a 2009 with the CBEA engine (290k miles). Both have been extremely reliable vehicles. Obviously the CBEA with higher mileage has required a bit more maintenance to replace wear items before they completely failed, but extremely happy with both vehicles. So make sure the vehicle is properly maintained and it should last you a long time.I have a 2014 VW Golf TDI. It has 78,000 miles. I want to just drive this thing into the ground. However I am afraid of VW reliability. What type of engine does it have? Is it reliable? How can I make it last despite Volkswagen reliability record?
