Not really rediculous, but I've got 193,000 miles on my 93 SC2. Can't wait till I break the 200k mark.

I've only got 144K. I think Luke may have us all beat. It's advertised in his (regularly updated) signature:

Why do each of you guys drive a car for 300K miles? (cost, you just like the car etc.) I bet it's nice to not have a car payment for that long....

Default Re: Who Has The Highest Mileage????????!!!!!!

I rolled over 196k this morning on the way to work.

I keep my satty

a) because I'm not in a financial position at this time to get a new car
b) I rather like it, it's treated me much better than my sable did, easy to work on etc

If I were in a position to get another car I'd probably get a new-to-me '00-'02 SC.

The only thing I don't like about my car is the left side of the lumbar support bites into my back after a few hours of driving. I got rid of most of the rattles recently by replacing the top mount, the other two are following tonight + windows tinted + doors dynamatted...

I counter that with a question... Why not drive them that long if you can. If the car isn't costing you anything (running well and not begging for tons of maintenance), why would you get rid of it. I am hoping that I can get the '99SL1 that I'm driving to clear 400000km. The lack of car payments, the lower insurance as the car ages, the greater availability of used parts (I am a student you know!!).

You're exactly right. If you reread my question, I admit that it's the most financially sound move. I have yet to have the self-discipline to do so, unfortunately. My last car was the car I kept the longest (3 years, 60K miles). In my defense, it was powered by the worst Nissan motor of all time, the QR25DE. After 4 recalls and a failing headgasket, I decided not to sink too much more money into the deathtrap.

I was just wondering why most people keep them so long. If it's because they just love the car or if it's for financial reasons etc.

LOL, that's great. I'll have to remember that saying!!!

I plan on keeping my Vue until it shows signs of needing major repairs. I would have kept my last car longer if it wasn't need over $3000 of repairs within a month or two.

I think it's a combination of both of these. If the current vehicle is not being a financial burden, why not keep it.

In the sense of loving the car, I think it may be a thing of not hating the car. Just as an example, my father usually drives a vehicle until it will not physically go anymore, or it is see-thru (rust holes... pre-Saturn). I have seen him flip a few cars though that he hasn't liked for one reason or another, that still have a good amount of life in them.

Personally, I don't think I love my '99SL1 (I really wish that I could get my father's old '95SL1 back in decent condition... I loved that car), but I do like it well enough to keep it around for a while as long as it doesn't cause me any problems.

I just think that it is more financially responsible to get everything you can out of a car instead of going and buying a new car off the lot every 2 or 3 years (Read: Depreciation).

In another sense too, I put a fair amount of milage on... much more then a lease allows for, and much more then financing makes it worth. If I can get a car for 2/3 of sticker price after 1 year that has 30,000km on it... I've just saved 1/3 of the cash that I would have spent on it to get an extra 30,000km (not even a year for my driving habits) out of it.

Just makes too much financial sense to keep driving the "old beaters" (No insult intended)

You're exactly right. I've lost my butt over the past 6-7 years buying new cars. This time I bought a used Vue with low mileage for ~$10K. Beats the hell out of my previous purchase of a new car worth $18K new and then it being worth only $8K 3 years later.

Of course this was when I was in college and right after graduation. Gotta keep up with the Jones's. Live and learn...
