100,000 strong (...and growing)
On the way to work yesterday morning, my not-so-trusty 2000 Volkswagen Jetta hit a milestone: 100,000 miles. It only took about 8 years and 3 months.
And to think last August when I took it in to get it serviced, the mechanic recommended that I replace the timing belt if I wanted it to last beyond 100,000 miles. My response: "I'm hoping to unload this car soon. I'll let that be someone else's problem." Yeep! It'll be tough grasping my steering wheel with all of my fingers crossed.*
*Especially in light of the fact that a broken timing belt recently did $2,000 worth of damage to my brother-in-law's 1998 Passat.
