My '07 is at 120k and the '03 GT is around 238k. Surprisingly, I've only put about 4k on the GT since I bought it in July. I've had the 07 for almost two years and bought it at 85k.... Lots of miles on that lol

I have an 03 Satellite (Silver) Vibe GT 6-speed with Nav system. I have 265k on it and it runs like a champ. No major repairs, just now having to replace door handles but that's what happens when you live in the desert of California.

Hmmmm ..... Would love to see some pics of this Vibe! Especially under carriage and engine bay areas. If this mileage is true then it would truly be one of the LOWEST mileage Vibes out there! 9300 miles or 850 miles per year (1360km/year) is hard to comprehend. Fill us in on the history of this Vibe. Welcome :D

Wife drives our 2009 Vibe, bought in May 2008 so it is 8 years old. I change the oil myself, have used Mobil 1. Bought a new set of tires a year or so ago, first set of tires, car has 75K miles on it now. Wife drives 15 miles each way to work, heavy traffic each way, LOT of idle, go, brake. It uses oil, have to check it monthly. One of the TPMS sensors is out, they say $60 to fix it, I say I'll check my tires once a month, the old fashioned way (I'm sorta old fashioned anyway, 64 years old now). Our first real repair (not counting the radio knob), did alternator, water pump, and serpentine belt this week. I think that's good reliability. Factory battery made it 4 full years. I put vaseline on the battery terminals and spray them and the cable connection with some red spray can stuff supposed to stop corrosion and it seems to work, my battery terminals look fine, as well as the parts that hold the battery down, I sprayed those screws and bolts since they usually corrode also.

Car sleeps in the garage, is out all day at work. We put ceramic tint on when we bought it, and use a sun screen in the windshield when it is outside. Last fall I clay bar'd the car and waxed with Meguires NXT 2.0 liquid, and it looked like new!!! The clay bar took off a lot of crap off the paint, I think it was worth it. Took me 2 days, I'm kinda slow. Beads water very well when it rains, and its been raining a lot here. I plan to keep the car at least 2 more years, maybe longer.

As a hobby, I blog about the stock market, so if you are interested, look me up on FaceBook @ Rich Investing

I already posted this to the Facebook group, but I'm finally getting around to adding it here.

I swear I took one at 200K, too, but my phone doesn't agree with me.

This was last month on the 27th. I've added 300+ since then. I was about to get on the freeway so this was as close as I could get to exactly 150,000 mi in a picture.
