I have a 2001 Ford Taurus with 152k miles. Its still going strong so I guess I'll see how far it takes me. I would like a new car, but just can't justify getting one since the Taurus is running fine.

I'm at 225K and still running fine. I hope to get to 300K, which would be another 4 years. I plan on driving it until it dies.

I'm hoping at least another 3-5 years, but it's close to 300,000 miles and things are starting to go… a bit wonky.

I'm over 70 years old, I expect that the vehicle that I own now will be the last vehicle I own. I would estimate 10= YEARS.

it needs a part no one has, for one thing, and is showing signs of generally wearing out, with not even 190000 miles. ə

My Vehicle has been exceptional despite many of the reviews for my make and model. I plan on keeping my truck until it completely dies which at this point, I foresee at least another 5-7 years. Why get rid of a vehicle that is extremely faithful.
