They are such robust cars. Mines now on 145k and has never failed an MOT.

Wow, that's quite an achievement; wish I could say the same! I was amazed when I was told my old girl (now 175k) failed her last MoT with a broken front coil spring; a previous car of mine had one fail (at much lower mileage) and I noticed that at once. Second reason was for corrosion in the sills (patently obvious) but fortunately I had already budgeted for it and had lined-up the work at the same time. Other than that, a leaking exhaust, inoperable headlight cleaners and various cheese bushes have been the reason for fails in its 16 year life. If you replace the brake callipers and the suspension often enough, MoTs aren't a problem... :wink3:

In it's life mine has had one offside front lower ball joint and all round damper renewal, and that's it suspension wise.  I recently spent a satisfying day replacing the radiotor and while I was there I also did the water pump, which didn't really need it.  

 

That is is all I've ever replaced in the car

I've got an extra button on mine - Snow.  It reduces the throttle response and in the snow it.... doesn't help at all🤤

Hoovered the air and pollen filters.

Plenty of life left in them-must be the Yorkshire man in me...

Ah yes, this was mentioned in another thread. I wasn't aware but button placement seems to depend on auto or manual, IS200 or IS300? My PWR and SNOW buttons are down by the gear lever.

Nothing wrong with that. But then I'm from Yorkshire :biggrin: I'll check the pollen filter in mine...

So today I spent a very productive day armed with Autoglym's finest.

Had to pop back to the tyre fitters due to a slow puncture OSR. I couldn't see anything in the (brand new!) tyre but I was convinced I'd picked something up and was prepared for the worse. I was very much in a "so it starts" frame of mind. Turns out the inside edge of the rim just needed a bit of a rub down so the tyre made a better seal and job done. They didn't even charge me :wink3:

Next I had to have a bit of a run up an unusually quiet M1 and once again I was struck by how smooth and quiet this car is. But has to be the most unintuitive cruise control I've ever come across! A niggle.

Is there some sort of high mileage club I can apply to now?

Just clocked 123456 miles today.

In my partners 2000 is200 6speed (was mine up to about 5yrs ago when I bought my 2004 is200 auto).

She says it's still my car just in her name!

Good to drive an auto and manual.

The car needed a clean and I've been wanting to try the Meguiars Wash And Wax Anywhere waterless cleaning stuff. Really, really impressed and also handy to use inside when it's raining. As happened half way through :wallbash:

So all the exterior cleaned including wheels and not a drop of water used. Smells nice too. Then the interior got a vac.

Then I drove home and it's loppy again.

SOMEONE RAN INTO THE BACK OF ME!!

Luckily I was in the XC90. Barely noticeable damage to the Volvo, front end of the French thing that hit me (technical term) f####d.

LED reverse lights going in because I'm too cheap to fit parking sensors. I should say the difference is more noticeable irl.
