    Default Car about to hit 50K

    hi all

    Cars about to hit 50K (1.9cdti)

    is there anything i should look at getting changed as prevention rather than cure?

    i.e. timing belt/chain, egr, injectors etc etc

    Default

    A 2008 on 50K
    That is 25K per year
    Assume one service every 8 months, just keep with the current service plan until the warranty expires next year
    The only thing you need to add next year is a brake fluid change

    At this time of year check the coolant gravity

    Vehicle : Golf 7

    Trim : GTD

    Engine : 2.0 TDI 184PS

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 40000

    Default

    50K? Try 123k

    Timing belt I personally let go over 60k, however if you feel you want to have it changed sooner than that then go get it done m8.

    As long as you service her properly and keep and eye on the fluids - oil and coolant she should run ok.
