Re: Highest Mileage Car.. post your mileage
A related question my wife and I have is: how long will our automatic Scenic, August 2001, go on for? It has clocked up all of 51k miles in 10 years and seems to be running well, although there have in the past been transmission problems, now cured. We maintain it well mechanically, but have never attended to dents, scratches or falling off hubcaps. It has become more reliable with age, probably like its owners. Any thoughts on how long we might keep it, or any tips on how to prolong its life? Thanks.
Given that it's probably worth very little, keep driving and see how it goes. If it starts causing problems and marooning you on the hard shoulder, get rid of it, but if not, just continue to enjoy cut-price depreciation-free motoring for as long as you can.
