Sorry, folks, currently I'm it. I am sure that our site will grow and we will have a pressing NEED to
have more people join us in the executive ranks. In the meantime, do not worry. I am good.

Please provide your name, city, state, vehicle model and year, number of miles on it and what kind of
routine maintenance and any major work done and the mileage when the major work was done. For example,
I used to have a 1993 Subaru Legacy Sport Sedan (AWD Turbo) with over 282,000 miles
(as of when I traded it in November, 2005 for my 2004 WRX) on it.
I changed the oil every 5,000 miles in my 1993, and continue to do so with my WRX. I use only
Mobil 1 synthetic oil and I do not need to add ANY oil between changes, and I run only unleaded premium,
just like the owner's manual recommends. With the 1993 not only had I not had to do any major work to it,
I had not even tuned it up! I did have the alternator done at 165,000 miles and power steering pump at 200,000
but like I said, honesty is important.
The only other work I have done to this puppy is brakes and tires. My wife has a similar
story. She used to drive a 1990 Subaru Legacy AWD Wagon (non-turbo). The car currently has over 216,000 (as of
November 30, 2006) and was being driven by my son.
