i would buy a TDI if I only did long distance highway driving and was good about keeping strict to the matenice of the vehicle, from talking to TDI owners it sounds like they last a little longer then older VW's but not much, expect to spend money getting timing belts changed before it brakes and destroys your engine, electrical problems up the wazoo, suspension, cv joints, they are kind of like owning a Harley, people who own Harley's like to fix them, people seem to buy VW's because the are like how they feel, but they either turn in to a hobby or a money pit.
people I know who own Toyota's just drive them, and drive them forever, Toyotas are the car that seems good for the person who forgets to take it in to get things fixed.
