I sure would like to make it to day 7000, but I doubt that will come true. I only do continual research so that when the Vibe does poop out I don't have to make a panic buy. Within minutes, I can log onto a myriad of auto buying services I am eligible for and get a good price on what I've researched. The current buzz is the forthcoming '21 Tucson due in the showroom this fall. I already have my spreadsheet filled out on all the things I dislike about the Seltos (ie: rear torsion bar on FWD models) and Crosstrek (no turn signals on side mirrors nor LED headlights on Premium trim) given the low end trim I normally gravitate towards to avoid the larger tires (rougher ride) and sunroof (not in hell's kitchen). I can then use my notes to make sure the next great new vehicle has what is missing on the competition. On the used car side should disaster befall my Vibe, is the fact that there are a boatload of HETs in Florida. I'd look into grabbing a 2012 which is the last year it was produced. While not built with Hyundai's best parts, the 2 liter engine is outstanding and it simply is the most versatile car ever built IMHO.
