I turned in my leased VW Jetta 2 years ago with only 26k miles (the original lease terms were 3 yrs/45k miles). I would have had even fewer miles but I had driven 2 roundtrips from Boston to Atlanta and at least 10 trips from Boston to NYC.

Now that I have the E90, I am glad that I purchased this one. I have had my car for just over 6 months, and I just reached 8k miles. Whats even more amazing about that is that I hardly ever drive my car to work. But on the weekends, I always seem to take the scenic route to wherever I am going
