DR + Mrs Bears face: Hi No sunshine as engines work they wear. so unless it was locked up in a garage and left with out oil and a battery to start it. and taken out and oil put in it and a new battery then started would be the only way a 10 year old car would be like new.
If you take good care of it and do the suggested servicing and any repairs needed, then it should still be running fine in 10 years.
I have a 9 year old Toyota, which is a similar quality of vehicle (reliability wise) and it's still running fine. It's had to have a few routine repairs over the years, but they have been just that, routine.
If you take care of your car, it will be with you for years. I'm driving a 17 year old vehicle and everyone thinks it just 5 years old. My husband has a 36 year old truck running. Of course, the good thing about the older vehicles is there are less computer stuff on it to break.
I have a Honda prelude and it is going stong at 18 years of age and only 66000 miles on the clock
Depends on the care it's given. With some of the yutzes around here, I'd expect it to die in six months.
My 2000 Infiniti I30 is (obviously) in its 17th year, it has 164,000 miles on it, and it still performs the way it was designed to.
My '98 CRV has 302,000 km and runs like new. Change the oil like you own shares in the Middle East, don't abuse it and don't miss the services, and you'll be right.
no problem ..i bought a bmw 528i in 1998 …it still looks and drives like new ..its been perfect …only battery .and crankshaft sensor replaced …im sure your car runs on fully synthetic oil ..as such it will last a lifetime
If regularly serviced and taken care of…probably.
