I have an American SUV from 2003 pushing 150k miles. Presuming regular quarterly maintenance, how long should a typical automobile last? I went on various websites with cars for sale and see that some of the highest mileage autos are around the 200k mark.
I like not having a car payment, cheap insurance, cheap registration, and simple DIY maintenance without all the computerized crap.
And yes, I'm a niggardly tightwad financier like!
