I had an 85' TurboDiesel Jetta which I drove 250K miles, gave it to my son who drove it another 100K miles, before it rusted enough (10 Mass. winters) to fail inspection.
IMHO, with the new TDI technology, there is no reason NOT to have a diesel as a DD, even @ $4.50/gal, unless you're willing to put up with a (boring!) hybrid/auto/CVT.
