I could live with the 2 not switching to a 3 if the other 5 digits kept turning. Atleast I'd still have an odometer to know when to do maintenance. Using the trip odometers is a lost cause because surely some of my drivers will reset them at random times. I'll probably just switch to time-based oil changes because the car does 10k/month pretty consistantly and then I'll keep a "guesstimate" of the current odometer in my repair log book.
A couple (poor) pics of this car:
I know some of you might be interested in my maintenance routine so here it is. Everything is in km but just multiply by 0.62 for miles.
oil/filter: 10,000km Esso XD3 0w30 synthetic/Napa Gold 1396
air filter: 50,000km genuine GM(Denso)
trans: drain/fill 50,000km Amsoil ATF with external filter and aux. cooler
PS: 100,000km Amsoil ATF
Brake fluid: 100,000km DOT 3(whatever is cheapest)
Coolant: 200,000km Dexcool
Plugs, belt, rear brakes: 200,000km genuine GM
Front brakes: 70,000km genuine GM
Stuff that has broken or worn out:
-catalytic converter(never replaced it but CE light is on)
-drivers side power window switches
-MANY door travel limiters. I finally made my own out of an old seatbelt and it works great.
-both front passenger door hinges
-rear passenger door handle
-pretty much all the plastic under panels have been ripped off from snow, ice and road debris.
All in all though I'm very impressed. Vibes are well built and take a daily beating with ease. Most of the stuff I listed above is from outright abuse by passengers and drivers. I've owned many other types of cars and none would have made it htis far with so few repairs. I'll probably continue buying Vibes as long as they are produced.
