First time buyer - mileage and maintenance question. VW Jetta SportWagen.
I'm a first time car buyer and I'm very interested in the Sportwagen TDI for its mileage and its cargo capacity. However, a new TDI is out of my budget, so I'm looking at used (CPO) cars. I've found a few good cars within my budget with one previous owner, but I was wondering how quickly maintenance costs can add up on this car as mileage increases.
I found a few good options at around 30k, and a few around 50k. I guess what my question comes down to is if I get one of these cars, what kind of maintenance costs could I expect and in how long/how often?
