I’ve been trying to avoid the 100,000 mile mark on my trusty Subaru for quite some time. As you can see I finally bit it.

I’m not worried about the car’s reliability but about resale. In another example of human irrationality (and certainly a testable one) it seems that 100,000 miles automatically and somewhat unexplainably leads the resale value to plummet. Maybe it’s the way car sites are set up to filter results or it’s simply another example of humans assigning value to numbers arbitrarily. Anyone have more info on this?
