Well my supposedly "bulletproof" 5.9 Cummins needed injectors in under 200,000 miles and the parts alone were over $4000 (new Bosch injectors, new harness, and new gaskets) installed would have been $5000 even. So great, the Cummins goes 500,000 miles but I could have dropped a whole new Hemi in there at that point for less than just the Cummins injectors. My 3.0 TDI just got all new injectors at 80,000 miles and they are similar $400 each just for the part. Luckily that was done 100% under the extended dieselgate warranty. It's always something, expecting zero high dollar maintenance after 200,000 miles is unlikely.
