2 cars:

2005 BMW 330i 47,000 miles
2007 Hyundai Elantra 12,000 miles (?)

We'll probably keep these two cars for a very long while.

Currently: '07 Camry bought new, already has 50k miles!
'98 Ford F-150 , bought used @ 107 miles, now has 157000.

When we traded the wife's '90 Honda Accord in on the Camry, it had 200k miles and was 16 years old. Bought new in '90.

I'm considering getting rid of the truck & buying a new Toyota something.

A '97 Nissan Altima with 99K miles that just keeps on going.

An '06 Prius with only 25K miles that our teen driver will run hard for another 630 days until she goes to a Mainland college. Then we'll sell the Altima and keep the Prius.

We got rid of our '94 Ford Taurus wagon at ~112K miles, but it's still on the roads. We've even seen our '90 Honda Civic sedan recently...

1 mazda miata, 1997, 100K miles. It has never required a single repair beyond regular maintenance.
1 VW Jetta, 2001, 100K miles. Super expensive to maintain for what it is. I will not buy another VW, ever. I used to love the brand but they lost their way.

Even though the miata is older, we might get rid of the VW first.

Just wondering.


Wife has a 4 yr old
Have a 1 and 2 year old vehicles.

Had a Geo Prizm for 17 years before I got these. Too much rust / body work needed to pass Pennsylvania state inspection. I hope to run these two into the ground (or die 1st). In the mean time, it is nice to not have to do repairs in the snow (2 inches of snow yesterday).

9 yrs and 6 yrs.

I would love to have only one car. We rarely need both at the same time. But I need one for hauling firewood, and one that gets good gas mileage.

The worst is that I put oil in the truck, and it mostly just sits there, and then in six months, I take the oil out and replace it.

"The worst is that I put oil in the truck, and it mostly just sits there, and then in six months, I take the oil out and replace it." Trombone AlI have two at 3: 2005 Honda Accord 10K miles (DW), 2005 Nissan Quest 30K milesand 0ne at 31: 1977 Jeep Cherokee 29KAl, I do not change the oil always in the Jeep but when I do it goes with other oil into my daughters car which leaks oil on a regular basis. It is so bad, she can't park in the drive when she visits. I think it is the valve covers and cover over dist. 93 Lumina junker

If you're right, it's an easy and inexpensive DIY fix.
