93 VW TDI Golf, 375 000, but the beauty part was when it hit 200, the digital odometer went back to zero for some reason.

Sold my beloved 92 Pathfinder.
Great hunting rig. Fit a huge cow elk in it.....
While. I kid you not.
The head was right next to me driving. Lol!
Sold it for 500 last summer.
Even hit a sheep with it.

92 dodge cummins 3/4 ton 4x4 had just over 500 000 km when I parked it original engine was still running.

My 06 Toyota Matrix had 350000 km on it and I put em all on. It was running perfect and only on its second set of brakes when it got wiped out this past January. I was pretty disappointed as I felt certain it was a 500,000 km car the way it was going.In that time period I did a starter and a Cat. (part warrantee) .
My old 6.2 diesel 3/4 ton chev rolled over 600,000k when the odometer quit. Probably has another 100 on it since then, and still going..

My dad used to do almost 100,000k a year I bought one of his cars and it had jus under 600,000 on it:scared0015:

89 Ford Escort EXP - the poor mans mustang. Racked up 375,000 on that car and she never let me down. Near sat and cried when a young feller hit me head on and wrote her off.
My current kia is running nearly 300,000 on the tach and still going strong too.
04-11-2012, 09:18 PM
My '00 Sierra 6.0 Liter is running smooth with 323 000 on her.

Currently driving a 99 GMC Sierra with the 5.3L engine. I have over 465000km and still going strong.
1991 Dodge Cummins has 375000 km. Had to rebuild the standard tranny on it.
Sold a 97 Chev Cavalier to a buddy for a buck and it had 400,000 km then and he drives it everyday.

My Dad had a 1991 GMC Sierra shortbox stepside - with a 350 and 5 speed manual transmission. Sold it with 649000km on it and the guy drove it away. Original engine and transmission.
I'm still using a 2001 Dodge cummins 1 ton with 455,000k on the clock and a few yrs back I sold a still runnin' 92 dodge cummins 3/4 ton with 525,000k but the best was a 84 first generation Ford powerstroke (Cornbinder) with 910,000k when we finally parked it.

1985 Toyota Celica GTS. It looked pretty much like that ^ when I bought it used in '87.
When I 'drove' it to the junk yard and sold it for parts in 2006, it had a little over 623,000Km on it.
04-11-2012, 09:29 PM
Plymouth Reliant K.....got it to 493,000 when the transmission blew...I was sorely tempted to fix it, just to see it clock 500k, but I could not justify the expense. Back in the early eighties, I had a Ford Escort that made it to 410K. My most recent high-mileage was a 92 Ford Windstar that saw 395K before a head-gasket issue made it pointless to fix.
04-11-2012, 09:30 PM
My 92 chev Sierra has about 510,000 kms on it and it runs like a top.
My 2008 Grand caravan has 80,000 and I would really rather do without it.
04-11-2012, 09:33 PM
Right now I have a 2000 F350 with the 7.3 at 467,000, a 2001 F350 with 440,000 and a '96 GM 1/2 ton 5.7 with 330,000. All still driven to or for work daily.
Might be time to look at upgrading! (Or not?)
04-11-2012, 09:36 PM
I'm still plugging away on a '90 astro, 355k, and a 1998 Grand Voyager, 340ish. But the voyager is an electrical nightmare on wheels. Pretty sure it's gonna burn to the ground before the drivetrain gives out.
04-11-2012, 09:45 PM
96 Ford Ranger with the 4.0V6 had over 410000km when I sold it. The thing still ran strong. Dad had a 96 Ford Windstar that had like 300000km on it when he sold it, people he sold it to ran it until they sold it to a friend. That van still runs around in Camrose with over 500000km on it. FIL has a 93 Cummins and the odometer stopped working over 6 years ago at 438000km. Some vehicles are jems!
04-11-2012, 09:49 PM
my 2007 Pontiac G5 GT (my first car) has 124,000kms and all thats gone bad was a weld broke in my downpipe, and a cam sensor stopped working
04-11-2012, 10:05 PM
1979 Dodge Ramcharger, had 390,000 KM and still running when we gave it away. Wifes Caravan has 296,000 and runs perfect.
04-11-2012, 10:07 PM
My Grandpa had an 1989 GMC 1 ton single wheel gas 350 with an auto tranny that he stopped driving at 834 000 km with original motor and tranny and he sold it and the guy drove it away. He since then put 550 000km on a 1996 Dodge 318 that he is still driving. My dad had a 1997 dodge cummins that we sold with 475 000km on it and was running perfect and I sold my 2003 cummins with 375 000km on it and I still have a 1999 cummins that has 330000km on it and is twice the truck as my 2006 was.
I had an 81 caprice with over 400 on it. Then I shoved a freshly shot deer into the trunk and kept hunting, by the time I got home the deer had stiffened up and I had to cut it appart with a saw to get it out. The car never smelled quite right in the summer after that so I got rid of it.

93 Nissan stanza with the ka24 crapped out on me in the a&w parking lot of my home town with 430 I put 130 thou on her in 14 months. My 91 Nissan D21 had 370 when I wrapped it around a tree, welded the passenger door shut and used it as a hunting rig, till its idle revs we 1800rpm, did a lil work to it and lastly changed the spark plugs only to twist the last one off, and couldnt get the threads out, truck was done after that lol. My 93 Pathfinder bush-rig had 390 on it before I drove her to the junkyard to get a lil cash from her, brake and electrical issues, to expensive to fix and no off-roading around lethbridge sooo no point in keeping her. My current chev S10 ZR2 has 182 on her and I dunno about going strong but I can see about $600 in repairs in my VERY near future lmao. Chevs for yea lol

04-12-2012, 07:37 AM
Sold my '96 ram with a cummins last year and it had 467,000 km's on it and still running strong. I rebuilt the tranny to handle the power upgrades to the motor.

I miss it.
04-12-2012, 08:16 AM
I had an 89 Chevy 1500 2wd with 514k on it when I got it. Put another 20k on it as well as 3 transmissions and 2 engines till I got rid of the bloody thing. It was a pile of crap and drove like every bit of the half million on it.
04-12-2012, 08:21 AM
Little 1987 22R four banger got her self retired @ 511K
04-12-2012, 08:23 AM
1991 gmc tracker 425,000km still going strong. 1 feul pump, 1 cv axle, and altinator.
04-12-2012, 08:47 AM
Back in the 70s and 80s Ford had a peculiar habit of producing odometers that rolled over at 100,000 K.
Hence my 78 F250 with a 460 reads at 59,000 K lol. Very mysterious :sHa_sarcasticlol:
04-12-2012, 09:34 AM
99 F350,7.2 litre,pushing 445,000k still going strong.Minor repairs only. Monashee
I had an 87 Chev cargo van with a 350 in it and I sold it at an auction with 395000 km on it, about 2 years later I saw it in Lloyd and talked to the guy who owned it and he said it had 430000 km on it, and it was starting to use a little oil, a litre inbetween oil changes.
04-12-2012, 09:01 PM
my work beater, 1990 jetta turbo diesel, 620 000+km. nobody will steal it, i don't care if it gets written off. the last 2 years i have given it a shot of tremclad to fight off the rust, it has very little, especially compared to most of the vw's around my area. my buddy down south ran an old chevy pickup from the late seventies for 1 million miles(not kilometers) before he could finally let go of the rusty old thing, reason being it was suppose to cost a lot for a new tranny(strange dude, he has a cadiallac that he drives once a year, but used his eyesore pickup every day).
2000 Honda Civic, 145,000 kms in ten years of owning it. Never had a warranty issue or repair other than normal wear and tear. Miss it every day.
04-12-2012, 09:44 PM
Dads record is 650,000 on a 95 1500 Chevy
Great truck besides burning transmissions out like toilet paper
Oilfield work does that though
My current record is 289,000 on a 93 Jeep Wrangler
Great vehicle, done most of my own repairs and saved a bundle
Just bought a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 OffRoad Edition
156,000 km. $6800 with Warranty.
Hell of a deal, in great shape, 145 psi on all cylinder compression check
Nice and tight in the engine

94 Dodge Cummins 800,000km when I sold it and it worked every day
Good old Dodge!!!
04-12-2012, 10:03 PM
She has 560,000 k on the original 350. Tranny done a couple of times, alternator and starter moter - even a waterpump. So far haven't had the tappet covers off, nor the oil pan. She's been running propane most of her life though. Still don't burn oil, but she does slobber a little out of her front and rear seals. Might have to look into an engine sometime soon...
04-12-2012, 11:06 PM
531000 Km on my honda accord 4 door 5 speed standard trans. My daughters old car, she has had two since this one.
I have taken out the back seat, this lets the front seat go right back horizontal to make a very comfortable sleep bunk. These cars open into the trunk so I can put long stuff in.
It is my camper and I will drive it until it dies. I have to go to the auto wrecker for tires and parts once in a while. I carry an extra fuel pump and alternator. It takes 7 liters of gas to go 100 Kms.
