    Hi all,

    Iím looking at a 2016 GT 2.0TDI blue motion Passat Estate.

    Itís done 77k, one owner from new and service history.

    Itís on for £11,495. Is this kind of millage on these engines?

    Are they cambelt or chain engines?

    Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated .

    They are cam belt, VW only give a mileage in the workshop manual which is something silly like 120k miles and most people are not that brave so we all tend to stick to the post 2009 rule of five years. If buying a diesel that is not EU6, you need to judge this with any possibility of T zones coming in where you have to go. Inside the M25 non EU6 diesels are going to become worthless very soon. I can’t see one coming in your area from what I could find out on your local government web site, Nottingham’s has been postponed from 2020 due to a legal challenge. To check for ANY car you look at falling foul of such schemes, use the TFL app for the London scheme as this will likely be the benchmark used by all such schemes Check your vehicle - Transport for London
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    All B8ís are Euro 6 compliant - early 150ís donít have Adblue though (like mine).

    So long as itís serviced I wouldnít worry about that sort of mileage

    I went ahead with the purchase. Itís a great
    and very economical car.

    Only issue is the common heater matrix pipe rattle and thatís it. Itís all good.

    I just fix the issue of " heater matrix pipe rattle ". as the German vw forum said, it is very easy to use a cable tie to bind the two heater pipe in the engine bay side. after that it will disappear.
