2005 Ardent red daily driver.. 42k miles and I plan to drive it forever.. I mean they need someone to test chassis bonding durabilty up to 200k miles and I hope to be the one! The daily commute is just too painful to do in anything but an involving car. I know that may not be what all choose to do but I want as many hours behind the wheel of this little jewel before I check out! Thanks for starting the thread.. interested to see what others are doing...

You need to get out and drive...low mileage means the car sits and sitting is not good for them (or us).

I see.. I only use it once a week.. The only problem that i notice was having a high fuel consumption.. Like 4kms per liter and decided to change the plugs. It improved a little and went to 7kms per liter..

Your welcome.. I also wanted to know how far our cars can go.. :)



I have about 34k on my 05. Bought it 2 or 3 weeks ago with just over 30k
Wow! 4k miles in 3weeks!? :bow:

Bought my AR Elise in July of 2007 with 14k. I now have over 60k on it and absolutey love getting back into it every single time! I've fallen in love with it so much i'm heavily weighing the decision to pick up a more comfortable ride for a daily driver....

Maybe trade in the '07 E350 for...oh i dont know...an '11 Evora...?
