Maintenance Time!
11:59pm Sunday, 20 Jul 2008

Well the TDi is currently sitting at around 195,000 miles. Earlier this month I replaced the cracked windshield and last week I had the timing belt, serpentine belt, water pump, and front breaks replaced. At some point before it gets cold I will have to replace the glow plugs. It will be time for new tires and new shocks again soon too. The headliner is sagging, the paint is starting to chip off, the glovebox handle has broken off, and there is a nice big dent in the driver's side door thanks to a hit and run while I was running in the Crescent City Classic earlier this year, but the VW takes a licking and still keeps on ticking like clockwork. I'm hoping that I can keep the body together long enough to reach 300,000 miles, which given my current commuting routine will take about 4 years.
