Question is how does it feel when you're driving it?

Yea man I've driven some and personally know a friend that's got 160,000 and he still tracks it. Just remember to TAKE CARE OF IT. Matenence it and get the oil changed on time and treat it better than your wife and it will last a long time

It'll go for a lot longer if you take care of it. Seems like if you do the fluid changes when recommended, the only things you need to worry about going bad are electrical, alternator, battery sensors etc.

That's normal miles for an 07. 12K per year is the average for most parts. If the car is well maintained it should run just as strong as one with 20K miles. I've got 45,000 an the only problem I'm having is my damn leather door trim bubbling up....lol

I'm luck to live a block from my college and 7-8 miles from my job. So I can walk most places. I want to get a motorcycle too but with it rounding into fall and winter I might as well wait

60k is nothing! My good friend is friends with a dude that is pushing 130k on a 08 gt/cs, ofcourse he drive cross country a lot for his business but nonetheless his car still runs great! As the others have said, just keep up the maintenance! but you have nothing to worry about your car still has a long way to go!

Same here. I took mine to an upholsterer and both door panels repaired for $80. No more bubbles or future concerns for worsening. When I mention that I was bringing in an 06, he knew right away I needed the door panels repaired.

Its tint that is supposed to block more heat and reduce more of uv rays and not interfere with radio signals. My tiny lady that has done all my cars said it was better so I decided to try it. I didn't pay anymore for it so thats why I went with it. Ive always used regular tint also but decided to try something new.
