Unhappy man, this is depressing

so i was just looking at videos i made a year ago and happened to look at the odometer...........at this time last year my car had 43k miles on it, its now at 63k miles.

the only good i take from this is that the car runs, feels, and rides just as good as it did back then. i guess staying on top of maintenance in every aspect really pays off. the only thing i havent done that i should regularly is get the radiator flushed. i havent done that yet i've done pretty much everything else. typical oil changes every 2500-3k miles with mobil 1, tranny flushes every 30k with royal purple, fuel injection flushes and complete carbon cleaning (that 4 can kit from bg that cleans out the carbon out the entire motor)

so b/c of all this, it still runs just as it did the day i put the programmer on it. (*knock on wood*)it obviously runs faster and more efficient since the tuner.


given my meticulous maintenance, how much longer do you think this car has left to it? what problems will i run into? keep in mind, the carpet and the back of the petal are good friends, they meet up with each other regularly

depressed over 63K? I have almost exactly double that, and my car has been brutally abused.

Re: man, this is depressing

eh, you buy a car to drive it. Milage happens :dunno:

As long as you take care of stuff itll last a LONG time.. especially cars nowadays. 100k miles is nothing anymore.
