Yeah, another way to think about it is that this car gets maybe 5200 miles put on it each year. So, at that rate, it's probably got another 20 years of service left in the drivetrain. Might need some rust repairs to get there though.

Nice! Penny hit 170k the other day, and now that the weather is warming up I'm starting to compile the pre-summer check list for things to do to her.

It’s not going to get many more years if you keep driving down that road.

The best part is, it being in park and going 25mph while accomplishing this. :)
