Over 10 years of reliability so far

Even though I have put very little mileage on this car (26,000 in the past over 10 yrs.) it has been very reliable for my needs. The only repairs I've had to deal with other than field mice chewing wiring, was some sort of valve failure in the emissions system when the car reached the age of 10 years..(a $240 job). Oh, and the cover came off the catalytic converter awhile back, but both the dealer and my local mechanic assure me it's okay as long as don't park on long grass which I wouldn't do anyway even with the cover on. I seem to get way better mileage claims and I only use it for around town errands (obviously by the low mileage). I hate to give it up.
Looks, reliability, mileage, roomy trunk, handling.
the car is over 10 years old so improvement suggestions would be retro, especially as the new models have everything I would wish for. Hmm?
