And what condition is it in, is there any rust showing through, is interior falling apart, any major faults that caused you to think about buying a new one.

It should be, unless you live in Iraq.i have a little over 3,000 miles on my car and its in perfect condition,
Why should you? Your car is barely broken in!i do not plan on buying a new one car anytime soon
damn that's a lot of miles. shouldn't think it to last long with that amount. what year is the car?
200,000 miles is way tooo long of a distance your currently usable old car has made, which sounds quite ideal to me. I would resell it when a good chance for a better model or similar but more modern one comes if I were you.I don't drive yet but family's car, the oldest, has over 200,000 miles. Toyota, good car and hope it lasts for even longer time.
nice especially if its one of the older modelsIt was like year 1996. Here and there, the car doesn't start right away in the winter time. It's color is starting to rust badly. My dad takes very good care of it. He also drives slower than most and accelerates the same way. I heard the nicer you drive your car, the longer it'll last.
2003 Nissan Pathfinder - 170K - Very good, interior is excellent. Un-stoppable in snow or sand - pulled a UPS truck out of a ditch in the snow 2 years ago. But it could be more fuel efficient ( the Nissan V6 is one of the best engines ever made)
2012 Chrysler Town&Country - 35K - rattles like crazy, electronics not 100%, hard on brakes ( most of the loaded minivans are due to the weight and distribution) ( Our third mopar minnivan ( 220K sold for $500 it was beat when we were done, but the first was the best of the three, 2nd went to 140K - pretty much rusted out - but still ran well, got peanuts on the trade in), This third will be our last due to kids moving out - but also this one was a disappointment (as well as with the dealer / sales)- still you can not beat the utility / versatility of a minivan - today I would go for the Toyota ( it is actually a little bigger inside as well)
2010 Ford Taurus 120K ( Company car) - Good condition, runs well, good for long drives. Good - but would not buy for myself ( Seems to be a lot of maint, tires, brakes) and unacceptable level of understeer, and transaxle occasionally will not engage into 1st when coming to a stop - engine revs and then bam! - about 1 / 100 stops.
As for high mileage we had a 1997 Toyota Tercel - we felt like we paid a lot for an entry level 4 door tiny car - a little underpowered, but we drove it to 190K, when we sold (for $3000!) it was the same car it was when new - perfomance, fuel economy,cloth seats were in great condition, unbelievably reliable - MAYBE one breakdown in the time we had it,,, highly reccomend but not available today, and it was very basic.
My car is an Audi A3 with 150,000 miles on it. It's mechanically sound, yet I desperately want a more suitable car. I just haven't been able to find the time to shop or take test drives.
