    Depends on reliability

    My Rover went to 140K miles at 4 years old, sold due to failing head gasket (not cheap to repair on a diesel)

    The next was a Vectra B SRI 140, went to 120K miles at 6 years old (including 1 year not used), sold due to advisory that front subframe bushes near failure

    Traded that in for a Mondeo Mk3 Ghia 2.0 TDCI
    This car got to 105K miles, but the engine failed two weeks before the MoT
    After 3 months out of use Ford bought the car, the deposit transferred to the dealerships VX counterpart

    My current Vectra C 3.0 V6 CDTI is now out of OE and extended warranty
    However, I managed to buy the AA breakdown repair cover one week before going over the 100K miles limit
    This expires in December

    I am therefore likely to replace this car early in 2011, however with VAT at 20% I will be looking for some incentive!
