    2008+ reliability after 100,000

    http://www.cars.com/go/search/detail...9143&aff=oodle

    here is a car i am looking at getting or similar, most likely a 2008 model. I just wanna know how well do they hold up after 100k? I know

    that depends on past owners but i just want a general idea if it is worth purchasing. As a college student i want to worry more about

    studying and not trying to get money to fix it every month.

    If I was a college student and going to spend 18K on a car, I`d buy a new entry level car with a warranty. JMO

    i.e. Scion Xd

    I agree with 99flhr, or even pay less for a used similar one with low miles!

    If I was a college kid with 18k to spend on a car, I'd buy a $3000 Honda civic and spend 15k on beer

    I'm up to 126,000 and still running strong. I have a 1.5 hour commute to work so I'm racking up the miles pretty fast. I'm pretty confident this car will go over 200k no problem. I have some concerns but I'm driving this bad boy into the ground. The highway kicks the crap out of any car. My paint is being blasted off; I've already changed the windshield once and its badly pitted again. I feel very safe in this car and I love the sound system. I use the Nav often and still have the original maps. I will be 65 this month and I'm looking forward to my next ride when I retire. I'm going for a 2010 V and I cant wait, but no more big commutes this one will be babied. Thanks for reading,
    Joe

    My commute in Houston is 1.5 hours also but covers only 12 miles.

    Not true. LOL
