Hitting the 150k mile mark!

Today my beloved car reached a major milestone, 150,000 miles! A lot of these miles were very hard earned, and a lot were everyday trips back and forth to school. I truly do hope this car will give me another 150,000 miles, and with how I maintain it, it should. Which leads me to my topic: maintenance. I treat my car like a king, because without my car I cannot do what I do. This car must take me to school first and foremost. This car also gets me to vacation spots, races, family visits, and more. Anyone who knows me well, knows my car gets what I consider to be the very best of everything. I use nothing but OEM replacement parts, premium 93 octance gas, and good oil (mobil 1). I do not have the means to do major repairs anymore, but I only allow my car to be worked on my trusted mechanics. This is all in the name of maintaining my vehicle to last as long as it possibly can. It is hard to remember doing things in anything else other than my car. I can still remember how excited I was to have a brand new vehicle, back in 2007. I can also remember how angry I was when someone hit my car, twice, both requiring repairs. Now although it does show some signs of wear and tear, especially from the school parking lot, it just adds to the layer of love.

Treat your car well, and it will treat you well.
