VOLKSWAGEN GOLF TDI GT
According to Statistica (a statistics company, surprisingly), the average annual mileage of a diesel car across all the ages it surveyed is 11,000 miles. That being so, it’s fair to say that the 2001 diesel Golf GT that had 355,000 miles under its wheels and was knocked out at auction for £210 recently was a high-miler.
To have been considered average mileage, it would have done 187,000 miles. Not that anyone would have described it as such. Instead, anything over 100,000 miles is routinely described as high mileage and to be avoided. At least one Golf buyer wasn’t fazed.
