Who else drives a beater even though they make good bread?
I'll start, 1st Gen Toyota Highlander Limited AWD 175k miles, own outright. Its actually a sweet ride. Leather, AWD, heated seats, sun roof, impeccable service history, slight purr (might muffler delete). Could probably buy ten of these things over, but love having no car payment and love the reliability of these old Toyotas. I personally enjoy the fact that some people look at my vehicle and assume I'm struggling financially. It also helps keep me humble. Some day Ill splash on a nice whip but until this old Japanese work of art croaks, Ill be driving like I stole it. Who else drives an old high mileage car? How many miles? Any stories you have of people commenting on your ride? I feel like there is a certain stigma in this industry where you have to present yourself as a high earner through tangible items like cars, apartments, watches, ect... meanwhile I'm in my 20's and constructing a bond portfolio that'll pay me 3x my salary through retirement on top of 401k/Roth.
