Saturn 1996 SL2 with just under 30k miles. Aside from the paint scratches in random places due to A)rocks from the road B)A shopping cart C)A cement wall jumping out in front of me the car is pristine inside and out.

Aside from the mileage that is, EPA rated 24 city 28 highway, getting 23 highway. Hopefully replacing the ECTS today will fix it. Or kill the car whichever comes first.

:o

What did you do in two years to put that much mileage (kilometer-age?) on your car? Since it's a corporate car, I'm guessing maybe you run deliveries, or are a regional sales rep, or something like that?
well its only been mine for the past two months, i got it with 55 on the clock

i work for a IT detachment agency (not sure if thats the correct term), currently deployed as a web developper (well, mostly JSP programming). My work is 5 mins by foot so i only use it for private drives.

I think that the previous driver was an acount manager for the company, those guys have to drive to all customers for intake meetings and such

and the first two weeks on the job i wasnt deployed yet, so i had to be at the office every day. Those two weeks i put over 2k on the clock just on home-work trafic

Right now I don't have a car. I do have about 6500 that I spent on on in full or use as a dp for a new one. Just haven't decided what kind to buy.

I hate these "what kind of car/consoles/whatever threads.

buy a mini one, and chiptune it to a cooper (only difference between a one and a cooper is a lot of chrome and engine settings) i know that to you americans 120 HP sounds like crap, but they are fast little cars, not to mention the amount of gas money youll save with a 1.6 straight 4 instead of those ridiculous V8s all you guys have ;)

The first year of owning my car I put 30,000+ miles on it. I guess I'm just always driving to see friends. And my girlfriend never takes her car. Even though its a decade newer than mine.
