    Anyone else worry about milage?

    Just hit the 60,000 miles mark in my coupe and I've come to realise that I have only had the car 9 months and when I brought it it was on 37,000.

    So thats 23,000 miles in 9 months, the rate I am going makes me think if its worth spending all my money and spare time on if car is only going to last another couples of years.

    Anyone else ever think that??

    I no its not mega mega milage compared to work vehicles but I am using this for work and pleasure and all my spare time/money goes on it.

    Is it time to think about another way round this?

    I tend not worry about mileage too much, depends on how the car has been driven and serviced

    I tend not to worry. Bought the car with 60k, now got over 100k on it.

    If you enjoy spending time & money on it, and driving it makes you feel good, then what's to worry about? You'd only spend the money on summat else, anyway.

    After trying to sell two high milage cars I do worry about the milage on the clock of mine. This probably takes some of the enjoyment away

    It doesn't matter how well you look after a car and document it's service history people will still think it's about to die
