We had it about 6 years and it never quit on us on 3 long trips and only spent $150 or so on it total. it got 38 MPG on these trips as it was easy to keep track of and figure out at the end of these 10,000 km jaunts. It was comfortable and just felt like it would not quit. It used no oil but we sold it at 178,000 to find another "good one" which it was. It was time to spend a thousand or two or just move on. We sold it for $600 more than what we paid....It owed us nothing!
