Re: Original owners, check in!

Bought her new on 7/31/05 with 6 miles on the clock.  She's now at almost 119K.  I've been wanting something new for a while now, just for the sake of driving something different.  Overall I still enjoy the car though.

You make it sound like you're running your original front pads.  Please tell me I'm misinterpreting this.

Original rotors, but I did replace the pads once already. I had them turned at 60 or 70k.

Re: Original owners, check in!

Purchased 5/25/2005 with perhaps 30 miles on it.  58k now. Mileage is low for a few reasons: I had another car, I began working out of state shortly after purchasing the vehicle and the last 5 years I've spend considerable time traveling for work. The first 30k miles were almost exclusively highway / road trip miles.

Nuh-uh.  Unless the couple hundred miles on mine totally disqualifies me, even though I bought an '06 in aught-six.

Original rotors, but I did replace the pads once already. I had them turned at 60 or 70k.

I'm also on original rotors at 115k. They've never been turned. I run super soft el cheapo AutoZone pads on it. Dusty, yes - but easy on the rotors.

FWIW, I bought my car used with 31k on the clock in 2007.
