Finally reached 175 000 miles on my beater car last night. Yes, it took me almost 4 months to put 1000 miles on my car. Yes, it doesn't get driven much anymore. Basically all it does is take me the 10 mile round trip to and from work, with the occasional trip out to the mall or other shopping destinations. And only if my wife isn't with me. If she is, we have to take her car because she doesn't like riding in mine anymore. She's paranoid it's going to break down and leave us stranded on the road. But it still runs pretty smoothly, and seems pretty reliable. I'm pretty confident I can keep it going to 200 000. My wife might have other ideas though. Guess we'll see what happens.
