    If my 87' T-Bird Turbo Coupe went 225k+ being abused, I'm sure a Scooby can do 300k+ easy if maintained properly.
    That T-Bird still had a ton of get-up-and-go, puff of blue smoke an hang on! But the Body just started to crumble.
    If you live in the northeast, wash the underside often during the winter. Salt is BRUTAL!

    Most of the touchless car washes by me have an undercarriage sprayer for as you drive into the tunnel

    That, or go to one where you handle the sprayer yourself and "on your knees, beyotch"!
    Well worth the effort.
    I always thought about that Rhino Liner getting sprayed in the wheelwells would be awesome.

    The manual ones will do a better job, but I always get soaked whenever I do it with the sprayer (I also get pretty wet when I do it by hand with the hose). I hit the touchless about once/week in the winter time, as I still have about a 20-min drive left to get home, so the water has a chance to fully dry before I let it sit in the cold temperature (I don't have a garage you can store a car in, so yeah).
