It is still going and the last I heard it had 318,000 miles on the clock.
My diesel automatic C Max is 7 years old in December, only has 68,000 on the clock and hopefully will last for years.
Cars to me are for getting from A to B with a load of fishing tackle in.
I love my old CRV, it's thirteen years old but still going strong. Having some work done to it today but costs have been minimal over the years apart from the fuel costs perhaps. I also prefer to run my cars into the ground or until they start to go wrong to often.
If Ever I won the lottery, I would have it fully restored rather than buying a new one.
