I think his usual plan is to spend $40-50K and drive for around 200k miles. The last two times have been low-mileage CPO. He loves being under warranty for the entire duration of his ownership so he will probably stick to a brand with an unlimited mileage CPO warranty.What is the option to replace it? Is it a new car or another used one?
He is averaging around 40K/yr right now. Question is will the engine/trans last much longer than 200-250K miles. All of the work that has been done under warranty have not been related to major wear items.Averaging 23k miles a year with 11 months to go on a full warranty, I'd roll the bones and keep piling on the miles and enjoy the car. Easily blow by 200-250k miles based upon the maintenance schedule you have your client on.
I think the tech was just milking the warranty to get some additional labor hours.What I find amazing is that he only got 53k miles on the second set of engine/transmission mounts vs 94k on the originals.
