Will Your Car go 300,000 miles? Probably Not
I wrote a blog entry on this, in response to the annoying Subaru ads.
Your 7-series experience pops up in one of my other blog entries.... it was a good learning experience for me, albeit not as painful as it was for yourself...
Any car can go 300,000 miles - if you drive it 30,000 miles a year for ten years. I know a guy who did that with a Chevy Citation once. Doesn't mean they were good cars. In fact, seen one lately?
200,000 miles is a more realistic expectation, IMHO.
