How many miles were on it when you bought it? And when was that?

I've only added about 23,000 miles in the almost 4 years of owning my car. Everywhere I drive is really close!

Does it feel pretty good? My 127K mile 99 SLE rides almost like new. I love how it glides over roads.

Wow, that'* less than 10 times less than my car'* mileage even back when I got it more than a year ago! 60K is good. Just have to ask, though: Has the transmission fluid been flushed?

Thats right, I bought it with 23,000 and I have slowed down so its not as bad as I thought. Just wanted to try and keep it low and in great condition as long as possible. And yes the trans fluid has been flushed. Had the 30000 mile service done and am going to have another service done soon. Even with the low miles, the coolant is slowly disappearing , so over the holidays the UIM and LIM are going to be done.
