Re: Time for a new car or not??????

TBH 100,000 miles hasn't been the 'death knell' for cars that it used to be, for quite some time.

Cars (if properly maintained) can have an almost indefinite lifespan, what usually calls time is the owner (when faced with a repair bill equal or greater) than the car's worth.

It was this concern which prompted the OP to start the thread, and ultimately replace the car.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
