I have a 2000 VW Golf GL with 212,000 miles on it and have had barely any issues other than normal wear and tear. The exhaust had to be replaced after 10 years, radiator after 11 years and I've only replaced the timing belt once at 160,000 miles!
I have literally put two sets of brakes on the car. The original sett lasted me 100,000 miles and the second aftermarkets "only" lasted 75,000 miles.
Oh, I still have the original clutch too. It still grabs very well and will spin the tires when pulling out quickly.
Bottom line, just get what you like. I think it's a crap shoot with any car you buy!
