This event happened to our minivan while on the way back from seeing my maternal grandmother. Every trip seems more special to myself and to my grandmother as we both know time is getting short for such visits. It has been awhile since I've passed this amount of miles on a vehicle. The first couple cars that I drove (but didn't own), all had that many miles on them when I started driving. The first car I ever bought did pass that mile count and I put on every single one of those miles but I got rid of it in the year before the pandemic as it no longer fit our family lifestyle, namely it was a manual transmission that only I was able to drive. I imagine it is still out there being used and may have crossed 200,000 miles. My last vehicle was totaled by a hail storm before I could cross this milestone. This one, it's replacement is still in great shape and will hopefully continue to serve our family until enough of them leave the nest that a smaller vehicle can replace it.
Meanwhile, we are maybe a week away from getting a new replacement vehicle for my wife. Her old car, is two years older than mine but with 40,000 less miles on it. The plan is for it to transition to being my oldest daughter's car and hopefully get her through college. The new car will be in the single digits for mileage so will have a long time before it will every cross this threshold. Perhaps by then, our youngest will be needing a vehicle herself.
