230,000 Miles And Still Going Strong by Blyss: 1:40am On Sep 02, 2012
What is the most miles you've ever put on a car you've owned? I have an old 2000 Chevy Cavalier that I bought back during my college years. I love that little car, and refuse to get rid of it, despite the fact of that I now own and have owned several modern luxury vehicles since getting my Golden colored Cavy. Many times I still prefer to drive it rather than my luxury vehicles, and old gal Goldie is loyal and still full of Fluid... I refuse to get rid of her, and my wife HATES it with a passion. She thinks its an ambarasment that I still drive Goldie around often. cheesy But I don't care, I'm gonna ride her till her last sputter. cheesy Today I hit the 230,000 mark while powering strong down 95 in her, as I blew past all kinds of brand new looking luxury fancy vehicles with no problems. cheesy The old gal bobs and weaves like a champ still. wink So what is the most miles you've been able to put on a vehicle?

The highest I've had on any of my vehicles is 543,000 miles on a '95 Audi Coupe S2. She was at 233,000 miles when I bought her, I put the extra 310,000 on her. Several trips to Europe, driving on the Continent through different countries, 4 trips to the Nurburgring.

She never missed a beat, though I replaced the turbo at 303,000 miles due to a worn bearing, and the cylinder head gasket. I must point out, the head gasket replacement was not due to failure; it was just easier to pull the head to get the turbo off.

I still service her once a year with her new owner, last visit in March this year, she was at 600,000 miles and still going strong too. cool

Do trucks qualify for this survey cos my 2000 Iveco eurostar truck has just ticked over 1.3M miles without engine rebuild yet. Got her wit 600k on the clock. Had the oil pump and turbo changed though.

Carwise? My 1996 Toyota Landcruiser prado is the most wit 140k miles. Had 2 buy a new engine about 20k miles ago. Its a long story bt blame the missus for that. I always wondered why cars that go the mileage trucks do?
