BETTY AND I have enjoyed our 2005 Boxster since acquiring it in 2014. We drive approximately 10,000 kilometres a year from April through October. We can’t always join UCR members for fun drives but the friendly folks at UCR have shared the routes with us for later drives. We have family in the eastern USA and our drives have taken us through the Finger Lakes, Poconos, Hamptons, Connecticut and New Hampshire.
Preventive maintenance on the car in 2018 included IMS check and replacement of the serpentine belt, water pump, starter, thermostat and clutch. With almost 190,000 on the odometer the car has been exceptional. —Betty and Francis d’Oliveira
