Red face I do 40,000pa to get to and from work

So, the new Grand Espace I bought in June now has 23,000 miles on it.

Only problem is slightly dodgy climate control, cracked windscreen (stone hit the edge) and tailgate struts needed replacing.

The car just drove me home again at the end of my shift, and most of it at 75 on cruise with ease.

Am thinking of getting an Ipod and that is the only modification I might do.

As to how long I will keep it? I think Ill probably get an extension for the warranty to take it up to 100k, then get another, possibly with a sunroof and heated seats. Tyres currently have 6mm all round, so looks like it will be a few more miles before I replace em.

Would like to get more than the 31mpg, but its a big motor, and after seeing the picts of the liverpool crash, am prepared to get less MPG for more strength.
