200,000 Miles & Counting... More Preventive Auto Maintenance or Sell?

by Brian England on Thu, Aug 05, 2010

I am asked many times, "Should I continue preventive maintenance  and auto repairs on my high mileage vehicle or just sell the car?" Today, well maintained cars will last well over 200,000 miles. With that in mind I am often asked, "When is the right time to sell my car?" "Should I keep maintaining it and drive it for another 200,000 miles"? My answer is, you have maintained the car to keep it reliable and safe, so why sell it? Then my next comment is, but there is a good reason to sell your car and buy a new model.  New cars have improved safety features; by buying new, you will upgrade to the latest features. New vehicles now have side air bags, intelligent air bags, stability control, special suspension systems, improved anti lock brakes, improved wheels and tires with low pressure warning systems, radar cruise control system, and rain sensing wipers. New vehicles are becoming safer and they are becoming smarter.
