Hi Willie,

It's impossible to put a mileage on an engine, as it will depend on how it was maintained and driven, so no two are alike. However, we can tell you that the 1.4 TSI engine has a major known issue that can lead to requiring a whole new cylinder head due to issues with the manufacturing. If you're buying one, check if this has been done already. If it has, then the engine should be sound.
