My '03 1.8T manual transmission Passat wagon was flawless for seven years and 75K miles before I traded it in. Best car I've ever owned that I bought new. Granted it probably turned into a giant smoking money pit for the next guy but I loved that car. My manual trans. GTI just hit 10K miles and recently started achieving 30mpg, despite my driving (jdiaz wasn't kidding).
