200,000 and still going strong
Our little green car has signed a DNR (Do Not Resuscitate), so we won't be going to heroic measures to extend its life. When it has a major breakdown, we will put it out of its misery and buy a new car. But in the meantime, we will do our best to maintain and ensure quality of life. That includes asking our house-sitter to start the car once a week or so while we're in Germany! We've left it for almost two weeks at the airport in long-term parking in the past and it required several attempts before starting, so we would expect the worst if it sat for two months. All in all, it's been a good vehicle, and car shopping is all the harder now because there will be big shoes to fill.
