    I bought my vehicross 10 years ago today as a dealer demo. It had 4k miles on it and I paid 23k for it. I had wanted one since I first saw it. It now has 175,622 miles on it and still runs pretty well. The transmission was replaced under warranty at 50k miles due to some real minor hiccup and that is the only major mechanical problem I have had so far. I've had the ABS module go bad, the CD changer go bad, and the driver's side power window doesn't track very well but I consider those things minor. It has survived a deer strike as well as parking lot strike due to someone in way too much of a hurry backing out. All in all a very good vehicle.

    Here's a couple of pics. One from today and the other from the parking lot incursion. Hope it make it to 200,000+!

    Yikes on that second pic, glad you got it fixed! Have you tried the TS-1 stuff on your cladding? I just put a second coat on mine yesterday and it looks great, might do a good job of evening out the new bumper with the rest of the vehicle.

    Congrats again! Original owners make me jealous...

    Thanks! I think that many miles ago I would have tried to keep the cladding looking fresh and the car waxed and polished but now I just let it roll. It can wear these imperfections as badges of honor and a testament to how long it has been on rolling.

    My how time flies. Last week made 15 years of ownership. And 15 years of Michigan's winters, but the VX is doing fine.

    Congrats on your 15 years.

    How many miles do you have?

    Any extraordinary issues other than the normal VX fare?

    I'm looking forward to hitting 6 this year.

    Still love it!

    I got mine in fall of 1999 in Dallas Texas...It's been to SD to ABQ and now it's headed back to SD...I'm sad though cause today I broke down. Its never let me down in 15 years of ownership. It's the first car I ever owned and I'm not going to give it up...even if it's a bit beat up.

    Well lets see.....18 years 4 months 3 weeks and 1 day and it just rolled 200,000 miles on the drive home. Average yearly mileage has dropped as I find myself using the wives 2014 Mazda during her off days more and more. averaged about 13,000/year the first decade and about 7500/year since then. I guess I haven't done any long trips with it lately either.
