Leon Fr TDI 05 just hit 216K, I bought on ~140K 4 years ago.

Still regularly get 55MPG on a motorway commute and pulls strong n only smokes if I haven't given it any boot for a while.

216k?! Impressive mate, makes me feel better about mine being a 56plate with 103k. You find any problems with the car at 216k? What do you reckon you'd get when you sell up cash wise?

Not a SEAT but 04 Audi A4 PD130 108k I'm hoping this will see me to at least 200k. I change the oil and filters every 10k. Averaging 55+mpg but that's commuting on the A9 every weekend, average speed camera's 60mph limit.

Just getting the control arms replaced with the Meyle HD kit as suspension has been noisy. For anyone that has owned a car with this setup will know what a pain in the **** it can be!

Bought the car at 73k 2 years ago this month.

301,000km (187032 miles) in my 05 BKD Seat Altea, still pulls really well, sometimes too well, and need to slap myself in the 'ead and act my age.

Oil changes every 10,000km, gearbox oil changes with every timing belt, and the car drives like day one, never let me down. Running the same battery since new also and it was sitting idle for 8 months at one stage.

Just got a clean bill of health recently to, with no additional work.

:thanks:

Had to replace the clutch and flywheel at 220K and that was the first time I had done it so must've lasted at least 100K.

Got a whine in 5th so going to try the o2m shim to sort that.

Other wise now on 224k and I got 59mpg average on my commute home the other night.

just passed 210k yesterday, and still averaging 55MPG :happy:
ended my ownership of the Ibiza on just over 220000, My Brother has bought it (he has a 2mile commute, so i'd say it will not go up quite as quick in the future) so i'll update when it dies or changes hands :D

25,600 atm, I've owned it since 7,107m/Mar 12

FR 170 (cr) & DSG. Hoping to keep her longer term.

Prior to the Leon I had a PD100 Golf which I took from 82k to 136k. No problems, serviced yearly just needed consumables and a cambelt + bits.
Sold the Leon @ 26.7k

Bought an Exeo @ 3.5k a couple of years ago and that is now on 34.5k

Mine is still going strong. The exhaust was hanging on by a thread so just fitted a miltek cat back. Non resonated but doesn't sound much louder. Just improved the note a bit and has improved throttle response/ turbo spooling.
