You know your car is “old ” when

* you have paid $3,000 in repairs the past three years

* you have purchased four new tires for a second time

* the passenger window will roll down when you push the button,  but won’t roll up

* you had to replace either or both the headlights or taillights

* Lojack sends out its most senior technician because the model installed in your car was discontinued about 8 years ago

    I feel you on at least two of those points. I am proud of the fact that my 2002 Toyota Highlander has 207, 000 miles and I just bought my second set of tires (did buy two at a time twice as well) . I have done a headlight . I have been truly blessed to only spend $1,082 at one time in the lifetime of owning this vehicle.

      Wow, 207,000 miles. I’m just over 130,000. One is blessed if one has a car for over 10 years with limited pricey maintenance. I dread another car note in the future.
