Exactly. I'm the same. My Commodore is worth next to nothing as a trade in,so I look after it and hopefully I'll get it to 300,000 Km. It's still a perfect car for us, and
I'll replace it when I'm good and ready. As a 2005 model, its got enough safety gear for me.
I wouldn't recommend too old a car as a daily driver though. We have a 1969 Buick as our hobby car, and honestly, it does not stop, steer or brake like a modern car. While you couldn't call it a deathtrap, I'm aware of its limitations and drive to them. Reply
