I drive a 2015 Lexus GS350 F Sport bought last Thanksgiving. 6,800 miles.
DW drives a 2012 Mercedes Benz C300 with about 42,000 on it.
Somewhere we also have a 2002 Ford Explorer that has been confiscated by the kids after they destroyed the Honda we gave them when DW bought her car. Not sure if it will be seen by bus again, but I sure could use it for some projects I want to do. They were supposed to be looking for their own car...that was in December.


Enjoying life!

I drive a 2010 Mercedes ML 350 Bluetec Deisel - 59,000 miles. Scheduled to be replaced next December when the 7 year extended warranty runs out.
DH doesn't drive much so the above is our go to vehicle.

Second car is a Mercedes 2007 CLK 350 - Convertible- 60,000 miles. Fun car - not used in the winter. Don't expect to ever trade this little cutie! Looks like the new versions of this vehicle.

I must admit I love bells and whistles. We keep our cars a good long time so we pack our cars with all the luxury add-ons available rationalizing that the cost of the vehicle is averaged over many years. Looking forward to self parking, blind spot driver assist, lane correction, self braking and of course for our cold Northeastern winters, heated steering wheels and seats are always a must.

Same as last year:

'09 Infiniti G37 90K miles
'12 Toyota Highlander 40K'ish miles

I am seeing lots of high end cars here and that's a bit surprising to me.

2006 Honda Accord EXL. 150KM, 93K miles. Purchased used in 2009. We only use it about 7 months a year.

Expect to keep it for another 10 years at this rate. Great car, very happy with it.

It's not that exciting but a 2007 Infiniti M45. It's black and it's getting detailed today. It's a low mileage car so still looks good and looks especially good with a fresh coat of wax and a polish. Wooooo whooooooo!!!!!

Have a '97 BMW 318ti (buttless bimmer) with cloth California roof down south. Feels really fast at low speeds.
Up north we sold off her E30 BMW and my much loved 2000 BMW 528it wagon with 325k miles. Now driving a 2008 BMW 328it, which is ok, but not the car the old wagon was. Looking for a second car to leave here so we are both mobile and have car failure backup. No comment on the unfinished '56 Chevy 210 wagon that has sucked up tens of thousands of dollars and is taking up huge amounts of garage space.

-2008 Infiniti G37 coupe. Wonderful car. Haven't yet seen one that makes me want to replace it.
-1998 Toyota 4Runner. I made a bunch of excuses for why it made sense to keep it, but those haven't really materialized. Basically I just like it, and can afford the cost of ownership.
