So I acquired a 2000 VW Jetta a few years ago and had no idea what I was doing. I know how to change a tire, change the oil, check the windshield and cooler fluids, changes the washer blades and thats all the maintenance I've really done since I've had the car. With having just passed 100K miles I want to take it in and bring the car up to speed. What should I expect? How much should I put in ($$) to keep this car reliable for a few more years?
I should mention that my ex totally f-ed my engine up two years ago and at the time I could afford to replace the engine with a refurbished one (52k miles on the engine, 75k miles in the car at thy time). I had to take this route as it was cheaper than just getting another car. So does this complicate things?
TL:DR - I have a '00 Jetta, I need to make it last me another 10 years.. What do I need to do now. I'm taking in it for the 100K check-up, what should I ask?
