Those of you with the real high milers, what's your policy, do you buy new/nearly new and run for years and years, or are you changing relatively often and just buying highish miles to begin with.
Me? I like to change relatively often, tend to buy stuff around 10 years old and 100k or so.
A mate's parents are on their third car in thirty years (and they only have this one three or four years) they buy new, service well and change when the repairs get too big.
Their last car was a two hundred and something thousand mile vento which was scrapped cos it needed a gearbox. The jeep is a 98 trooper with around a quarter of a million on the clock too. it's amazing what some mechanical sympathy and good servicing can get you.
