194,000+ miles: 1985 VW A2 Jetta Turbodiesel. Mark O. Sedro-Woolley, WA.

Enclosed is a picture of my car. It is a 1985 A2 Jetta Turbodiesel that my folks bought nearly new in Maryland. They gave it to my sister in Montana, she drove it a few years.  I then purchased it from her a couple of years ago, and we brought it to Washington State. At 194K, she still starts when I want to, and because I can’t keep my foot out of it, it gets 40 some mpg. I sure wish I could buy a car like this “NEW.”
