His: '98 Ford Expedition. 132,000 (8k when bought used in '99)
Her: '99 Ford Taurus Station Wagon. 136,000 (bought new in '99)
Son: '05 Honda Accord Coupe. 44,000 (27,000 bought used in '08)
Wanted to give my wife the newer car but she wouldn't give up her Taurus. Plus we thought it best Son's car had the latest safety features.
Son took the car to college his first two years and then surrendered it once he figured out owning a car is expensive. Actually getting him to this realization was the only reason we allowed him the car at college in the first place.
Tranny on the Taurus is dying and is only used for trips around town. We'll likely replace it within the next six months. Plan to keep the Expedition a few more years, so we can stagger the age of our vehicles moving forward.
