And you think the Taurus is a luxury automobile.

Tomorrow morning, Ford (not the Mayor) is supposed to get their 2013 Escapes. I'm going to drive one for a week.

Is the Escape as luxurious as the Taurus? I'll let ya know!

The cars today are 100's times better than 20 to 30 years ago. I remember my dad getting a 120,000 miles out of a 1972 LTD, and it should have been sent to the junk yard 20,000 miles prior. My wifes 1999 Honda CRV has 310,000 km's, my company 2008 Toyota Prius has 210,000 km's and my son's 1998 Dodge Ram diesel has almost 500,000 kms on it. Considering you probably do mostly city miles, you have done well @250,000kms.

For the first six years I drove this car, I had a pretty good commute to an office in Thornhill. I put most of the kms on during this period.

Now that I work from home, I hardly drive... just a little city driving when I have the kids in the car and can't bike. It's going to take me a while to hit 300,000 km.

I hope your cassette & 8 track player still is functional.

I wish I had a cassette deck in my car. The cassette adapter would come in handy for playing my tunes.
