Okay, I'll start:
Nearly 68,000 miles. NEVER been back to dealer.
I've replaced brake pads, plugs, ignition wires, tires, and lots of oil & filter changes.
Plan to have auto fluid changed when I'm off over Christmas.

I have 15,350. Nothing but oil changes and regular service until it was rear ended last month. Just got it back yesterday. Fingers crossed that it will continue to be low maintenance

10,192 on the Neil and Jeannes 2003 and absolutely nothing wrong. Just faithful oil change at each 3,000 miles as recommended.

103K km 3 headgaskets, 1 valve cover gasket, 3 new windows, sunroof 'fixed' twice, 5 motors :-o (spun a bearing, I replaced the first one w/ a wrecker motor, it had a BHG, they installed 3 more before they got a good one) other than that the car runs like a champ, and will give most anything a run

Yes that's for my Neon

1630 miles!


One oil change.

Hey, IRPT, how did you get your pillars (the black ones, right?) replaced under warranty? My dealer can have their waterspots back.
