How many miles/km on yours?

Postby Chevette Girl » 14 Jun 2009, 06:58

Mine's at 292,130 km, almost exactly 200,000 km more than when I bought it in September 2002... poor thing.

My first one's engine crapped out around 315,000 km in its second frame...

Current car shows around 98k kms - think it may be right from wear on the pedals, carpet, etc.
