Glad I found y'all. Been lurking and learning for a while here. Thanks for all the good info!!

Hoping to buy a Golf TDI. Purchased a new '79 Rabbit diesel for just under 8 grand and loved it for all of 311,000 miles. After 14 years the rustman consumed it. On a Boston to NYC run at 53-55 mph, no air,
windows closed, 5th gear, I was rewarded with 76 mpg. IIRC, it had all of 48HP.

You'll be happy to know that modern VWs have galvanized bodywork and pretty good rustproofing. How many miles do you expect to put on this one :)
