Haha it's true though Fat Charlie. They are generally the kind of car people end up with, but had no intention of buying in the first place.

10 year old Sentra

Doesn't quite qualify on hwy mileage (surprisingly).

(Why am I breaking my own rule? Probably because it's the first local car that has even come close! We seem to be in a bit of an eco-beater drought lately, and I got excited.)

Regularly oiled, 2005 with approx 160,000 km, standard, great commuter, excellent on gas!!
That's low km for the age, and the fact that it's been rust treated is a big bonus around here.

Sven7, So which has more retail value? Your civic or your fatbike? I priced some of those last year and was shocked at their prices.

That civic would be a great replacement for my Taurus(whale), but discretionary money is/has been into maintenance and repairs for the old girl lately...

As a side note my best friend back in my youth (late 70's) in Duluth, Mn. was named Sven

Nice thing about a Sentra is the much lower maintenance costs compared to cars that need timing belts, valve adjustments, and clutches. 3-t belts, 6 valve adjustments and a clutch can add up to thousands for those who do not do those jobs themselves.

They also never lived in the limelight of popularity and owners were generally not agressive drivers. Having a reliable car that is reasonably economical allows the owner to build a cash reserve for an upgrade and maybe even avoid financing, which brings on higher insurance costs.

Basically with decent oil change intervals a 91-99 Sentra should last as long as any other vehicle of that era regardless of manufacturer.

Ecomodding for the economically challenged, even if you aren't.

regards
