I use it for work, but I only live about 4 miles from where I work. The milage is because I go out for a drive in the Peaks most nights. I just cant stop myself Have managed to slow it down from when I got the car. Was on course for putting over 50000 miles on it in first year. At least that has dropped to a mere 28000 now!
Since the end of January I have done about 1,900 miles and as I only work about one mile from home, my mileage is always low. Sometimes I go the long way round! My last car did an average of 4,000 miles per year, which explains why it always looked new!
Baz654, why should I have a 1.2? I have never had a 1.2 in my life! I feel safer with bigger engined cars with good acceleration and anyway I like the interior of the 172! Also I have a hubby who spoils me, just like my dad used to! Had I persisted, he would have got me a V6 Clio!
Baz654: There is no need for that stupid remark! Actually as we have a joint bank account, I suppose you could say I have paid for it myself. He still spoils me and doesnt need any reward, since you were interested Baz654.
Yes GR I do like a polished car, it always makes me feel good when you see a perfectly mirror polished surface. Neigbours think Im mad I have been known to clean my cars in the rain if the urge takes me.
I also wash my car in the rain if the roads are muckyish, as any dirt is very easy to wash off. My neighbours have been tormenting me for years, but my car is always shiny and quite a few here have company cars and just take them to the car wash. I wouldnt be seen dead in a car wash! You cant beat a gorgeous shiny black car!
whatever car might have I dont think d worry about the mileage. You have bought the car so you might as well enjoy it. Look after it and even if you sell it with high mles at least you have had your moneys worth
