French, British, and Germans had a version of cash for clunkers before the U.S.; Japan had one, too, around the same time. All had an interest on stimulating demand to help their auto industries stay afloat.

So that makes it OK for us to do it??


All it did was take a lot of good used cars off the road, so the poorer among us had no cars to buy..

My Corolla has 330K, but if I were to try and sell it, it wouldn't be worth squat...

I have a Trailblazer with about 236k miles on it ( we did just have to replace window motor a couple of weeks ago) and my z has about 197k miles on it - we do the regular oil changes , transmission fluid changes, and of course brake jobs — I say why buy “new” when these vehicles still doing great though high mileage? We have had other repairs done to these vehicles in the past but even New or newer cars have had to have parts replaced too.
So a high mileage vehicle can be a ticking time bomb or it can be a great vehicle still — it’s the luck of the draw I’d say !

Japan has very stringent safety and emissions standards for vehicles more than several years old. This results in a lot of their older vehicles being exported to other countries, including Canada, despite them being right hand drive. For Japan, it means most vehicles are newer and safer, and also has the added benefit of stimulating their domestic vehicle sales.

My Subaru Outback daily driver is a 2010 with 190k miles on it. I'll be getting rid of it after it hits 200k. I was somewhat surprised to see that KBB and Edmunds thinks it's still worth somewhere between $4000 to $5000.

Mechanically and cosmetically it's really in pretty good shape. I have to add a quart of oil at around 4,000 miles, after a change. (I have gotten oil changes every 5,000 miles, since new.)

The only things wrong with it are that the power door look actuators have stopped working on a couple of the doors. So I'll need to bite the bullet sometime soon and take off the door panels and look at replacing the little actuator motors....

Being a CA car, the body is in perfect shape, and the miles have been mostly accumulated on the freeway. No reason why it shouldn't go another 50k miles, if not more.....

I'd be tempted to just see how far I can go with it, but my wife is lobbying for a new car, with me taking over hers....

Funny how that works!

To say the truck is clean is an understatement. Every option including sunroof, dvd player, and even magnetic ride control. Extra set of chrome 20s for winter, weather tech's throughout, and mobile one since new and oiled every yr. Paid 15 for it and been a great truck so far.
Has brand new GM trans with 100k warranty from the dealer and I have the receipt for 5,450 which seems a little ridiculous .
I wonder if they ever change the trans fluid, my 2010 Tahoe has 175k and trans is fine but I change the fluid at least once a year.
