When should I trade in?

Hi Guys

I have a 2015 Kia Koup 1.6 Turbo Auto.

It is my daily driver with 80 000 km / 50 000 miles on the clock.

My options are to trade it in before it has too many miles on the clock and looses value or to keep it. I really love my car and seeing they don't make koups anymore, I would not know what other similar options there are.

If I keep my car for another 100 000km what technical issues should I look out for? Besides normal regular services, what else should i do? As it is a daily driver I need reliability.

Any useful advice would be much appreciated.

Welcome boet.

The decision to sell at low mileage is dependent on the market in your area, the "windy city", but with proper maintenance (good quality full synth oil and filter) it should easily serve you for another 100,000 km.

Quality and not quantity counts.
