^^^ I don't think I have ever had to parallel park it. Will it be that hard to do?

Mechanically...my Fit is about perfect yet with the miles.
It's the salt/rust that is starting to get it. Door pockets are all showing some rust at the bottom.
One more year might be it.

Ok...we've got 2 Toyotas, a Subaru, and a Honda.
I see a trend.

Craigster never mentioned the brand of his.

Another tidbit to add for the statistics.

In the late 80's I sold my Mitsubishi Montero with 250K + on the clock..

My co-worker drove it until it basically fell apart on the Penn Tpke with over 300K on the odometer

My neighbors 91 Volvo 515,863 sadly its been sitting for 5 years or so and has deteriorated so i dont think it will see any more miles. But he had it since new and has every single receipt since new. Still on the original engine block but he did have to redo the head once. Very eclectic guy he is funny looks like Einstein.

I did 249000 in my Ford Focus 1.8 TDCi diesel before the turbo started failing and I sold it
Previously I did 235000 miles in my Mazda Premacy diesel before engine trouble and I sold it.
My Renault Espace petrol was still running well init original drivetrain at 450000 miles( in 9 years of very hard work for me, and the car) when someone offered me good money for it out of the blue so I sold it( I had thought at that mileage I would have to drive it until it broke expensively because nobody would want such a Miley car).

Yeah...I'm sure a quarter mill miles on a semi-truck is next to brand new.

I have a lot of respect for you guys that do those kind of miles..nice job!

My late father's El Camino has 485k+ miles on it - heads have never been off. (For sale on Autotrader if anybody needs one...)

I've had 3 Audi's with 250k+ on 'em when I got rid of them.
