How many miles can I expect out of my Beetle? on 2001 Volkswagen Beetle

I've taken good care of my Beetle, done all scheduled maintenance, oil changes, etc. It has had a ton of maintenance over the years and is getting close to 100K. Considering the problems I have had, I am thinking about getting another car, but most of the times the cheapest car you can get is the one you got...so I was wondering what mileage VW Beetles usually get up to without extensive cost prohibitive repairs.

change your timing belt and water pump now, keep your maintenance up and you should get another 100,000. Roy

A well maintained Beetle can last 200,000 or more but the downside is maintance..Timing belts,shocks,tires,alignments,etc can cost a lot.If your a beetle fan like myself you might be better off trading for a new one....Checkout the new CC way to cool and not many on the road...stands out like no other.
