well hmm when you are on someone elses computer that is a laptop and you are used to a desktop, typing is a little different, plus it was almost 3am, and i had to do 170 miles in one night because my part time business that i do for extra money is running parts all over my state. I make money for driving around. hmm what else could i have been doing to spend my time. sitting on a computer making 50 post in an hour? sorry to get rude bikeman, but that was kinda of a rude comment to make

I got a good chuckle from your comment.

 

Don't be so sensitive, man. It was just a little humor.

Keep posting and have a Merry Christmas or Happy Holiday.

I am 50 miles from hitting 190,000 miles. I should be in the 200K miles in 2007. I am definitely going to stop and take a picture when the odometer hits 200,000.

There used to be a Toyota club that you could join when your car reached 100,000 miles and another place for 200,000 miles.

 

Is that still around?, if so, you could join up.

at 161,131 my geo is kinda dead, if you read in the thinking its the clutch it will explain it, but funny thing is i say kinda dead cause it will still run but just horribly, still is the champ

I'd make sure that the timing belt has been changed since 120K.

Had a Camry that I took to 246K before I gave it up before it became a problem. After 200k the only repairs I needed to make were new CV joints from my driving style, and as far as age goes, a new radiator and had the connecting point between the tank and the and fill point rust out (that was an interesting gas station visit).

Mine has about 167,000 got it with about 140,000 and it still runs alot better than my 96 neon with about 70,000

My project car had 231,000 miles on it before a careless relative of the previous owner drove it until the oil was gone and the engine seized.

 

I changed the engine with one that had about 79,000 miles that I bought at a junkyard.

I would be kind of hesitant (depending on what you paid) to buy an engine with 206k miles on it.

ya its a last resort, it only cost 150 bucks so like that alone in parts is kinda worth it but im gonna go to the auction, word is they have been having a bunch of geo prizms 7th gen going through for around 300 bucks, so if i can get one thursday then im gonna put off getting that other engine, but i mean 150 bucks and they pull it and load it for me, not a bad deal, might be a decent spare especialy if i get two geos

Are they selling the whole car for 300, or just their engines?

 

 

they have been selling whole cars, running, not sure how it is other places but alot of the older cars that are stick just dont sell well so they go for cheap, and winter is a bad time to try and sell, i got my car at the auction and i got mine for 900 and it was mint, i dont really car what the car looks like, i have all spare parts, if it runs im down

Do you fix them up and sell them, or just buy them for yourself?

 

 

i ahvent been buying them yet, im gonna buy this one and keep it but if i find some other cars that i think i can make some money on then im gonna do that, alot of times you can get these cars for 300-500 bucks and turn around and sell them for 1000 cause they are in really good condition but the things that go through the auction people just really wanna get rid of

Sounds like you should look for a couple of cars that can be resold, and one for yourself.

 

 

ya i should but cash is kinda tight right now, but when i have the means here in a few months i would really wanna do that, if someone is good enough it can be a job so i dunno we will see

How often do they have those car sales?

Do they sell any 7th generation Corollas?

they have them once a week, ive seen a few corollas go through but its never a gaurentee on what goes through

I'm jumping in a little late, but 16xK miles is a good number, but not a great number, and nothing close to any records. It shouldn't be anything hard for a Corolla to do. I had a friend who had one of the old 2.4 RWD Celica's that got over 250K miles. The cable for the hood rusted and they couldn't open the hood any more. It was also hit by a deer. I got over 250K miles out of a Ford Escort GT with a Mazda 1.8 engine. I sort of want a MX-5 some day because of that, but I need something bigger then that right now. Even a Ford V8 or GM V8 can go that long without a rebuild. I've known people to hit well above 200K on the Jeep inline 4.0

Usually, people just get tired of cars after 200K miles. I know I do. The car starts falling apart around the engine usually. Unless it's a collectible, sometimes, it's just best to move on. Wait till it's dead, and let it go.

That is true. People don't keep their cars very long - regardless of the mileage. They get tired of it and want something different.

 

I would like to see the statistics on how long people keep their cars.

For me, I get a different car about every three years, although I have had cars (or vans) for 12 years.

My current car I have had for only about a year, but I could go for a change.

I got over 300k out of a 90 civic on the original lower end - and I drove the hell out of it til I finally sold it - still running. It was the 1.5L SOHC motor though, I don't think the DOHC motor lasted quite so well. That was probably the best car I'll ever own - the only real problem with them was that the axles clicked and as long as you kept the CV boots good, just ignore it. Here's to another 160 on your rolla! I know I'm driving mine into the ground default_smile
