keeps on going

I drive 100 miles a day round\trip to
work. I've changed the oil every 3,000
miles, bought two sets of tires,
changed all the belts and hoses at
100,000 miles, and replaced the brakes
at the same time. The car has never
laid down on me. I have not had to
replace so much as a burned out bulb.
It's not the hottest car, but it sure
has gotten me back and forth quite
well for the past four years.
35-38 mpg consistently, even using the
Go to shocks rather than struts.
Struts cost $1400.00 to replace.
Shocks are $49.95 each installed.
