Yeah I meant the battery was old, & the mileage comment was that she was able to only put 30K on a car in three years. I have ha my truck for three years & it has over 130K on it, granted it is an 02, but I bought it from car max & it only had 20K on it when I bought it lol.

If this was my only mode of transportation, there would definitely be way more miles on it. Plus I live somewhere where the only time I drive more than 10 miles is a few times a year, and maybe put 50 miles on it then.

Be sure to start her up daily even if you don't want to go anywhere, LOL
Got it in one, Coop. The battery needs some more juice. If you keep having the issue, Alex, I recommend getting a battery that's a little more heavy-duty.

Common misconception.

Most new-car warranties are 36 month/36,000 mile warranties, whichever comes first. Hers is a 2009 and is almost definitely out of warranty, as it was probably sold new in 2008. If it has a warranty left, take it to the dealer ASAP because that warranty is going to be gone soon.

Most new luxury car warranties are 5 years/50 or similar.

You're making a smart financial decision then. But yes, 2009 is old to a lot of people. There were about two people I knew who understood my decision to get rid of my 2008 for a 2004 that cost more. "Old" is relative.
