Hi everybody, its been a long time since Ive posted. I just took a 2006 TDI Beetle in on trade with 298,000 miles on it. I was thinking about keeping it for myself figuring it would pay for itself in not driving my big old thirsty shop truck daily.
The day after I got it I took it on a 600 mile road trip as it runs and drives like brand new.
I need to fix a couple of rust / body issues and mechanically I am going to do the full timing belt job as it is due. The oil has been changed every 5000 miles, the turbo is about 14 months old.
Anything else I should do or look out for? I retired from VW before the TDI came out so Im not that familier with them.
The car will sit outside at night in Northern Illinois winter and I want to be sure it will start in the morning unlike the old Rabbit Diesel truck I had years ago that wouldnt if someone walked past it with a bucket of ice in July.
Thanks
