The Mazda hit the 400,000km mark not too long ago, and we were pretty excited for that milestone. Then this past week we had to take it to do an emissions inspection which it failed on two separate occasions. We thought it was the end of the road for the poor car for a brief moment. Then my dad replaced the catalytic converter last night, like he did two years ago and the car passed the inspection today with flying colours. Thank you dad! It just might make it to 500,000km now, which I didn't think was a realistic milestone a few years ago. And who knows, maybe in 2 years if the car is still running and the body hasn't rusted over completely yet, we can change the catalytic converter make it pass another e-test, and give it 2 more years of life! I won't hold my breath though.
