Listen to Vegas. I paid 19 before tax etc on a 2012 2dr manual GTI w/ convenience that had 15k miles, CPO warranty. I got that in '13.

Also two parts on the engine that WERE big problems no matter what mileage you are at have had factory warranties extended to 10 years/120k miles. Those being the intake manifold and the waterpumps. Your timing chain tensioner will be covered til 60k, which if it fails before then it'll be replaced with a revised part that seems to have actually solved the issue. Don't think it's too expensive to replace out of pocket if you pass 60k and it hasn't gone yet. Other than that, typical maintenance and you should be good.
