We all know the car build quality is going down the drain in recent years, but we still can find exceptions if we look close enough around us I'd say

I'm not sure what the big deal is about this car/mileage. Could find a similar example from any make without much effort. Even perhaps a **GASP** chrysler product..

I thought maybe it had a million miles. Nope. I've got a (gasp - GM) 05 Chevy Cobalt bought new now has 321K and everything works as should. Well almost - original front hub bearings still good but ABS sensor wires finally broken. And RR power door lock lazy.

Someone REALLY took care of that leather! I'd love to know their care routine. I see cars that are barely a year old with destroyed leather. In my experience, leather will outlast cloth if it's cleaned and conditioned regularly.

I used to have an 85 Ford Escort hatchback. I put over 85,000 miles on it in one year. I had a sales job and drove all over a trip-state area taking orders for veterinary supplies. I also had a 2005 Ford F-150 5.4 4 crew cab Lariat that had over 215,000 miles when I sold it several years ago and I am sure it's still on the road today. In today's world you don't get bragging rights until you are at 300,000 miles with the original engine IMO.

If anyone reads thru all the posts about repairs needed to their cars, every brand has issues. From factory problems that warranty has to fix, to the common why did my (you fill in the part) fail after 50k miles. Cars with direct injection issues, to variable timing problems. No brand is exempt . And this is not just with cheaper cars. Any car you buy will have a quirk attached. Even if it's just a glove box you need to run a screw into to keep it shut.,,,
