341000 on my daily '96 A4 2.6. Passed the last four MoTs with No Advisories; recently had 5th scheduled cambelt change; just had to replace original exhaust, but clutch is still the factory-fitted one wink

I only intended to keep it for a year, but over five years on it's still running superbly and reliably. Long may it continue!

50k annual? Jeez, has the engine ever turned off? biggrin That means an average of 142 miles on EVERY day in the last six years.
Its early life was much lighter than the last few years. Did about 80k last year..

VX has 46000 on it (I've done about 5000 of those), Corsa has 68000 on it (14000 are mine) and the Fronty has 105000 on it (maybe 1000 are mine) - they all feel solid, and a relative sold his car at 266,000 (it was 8 years old) and said it still felt almost as good as when he picked it up with 18 miles on the clock.

10,100 on my 09 scirocco. Not a lot in 20 months!

To be honest I am a little bit disappointed the service indicator has just come on.

Interesting poll!

The miles on my cars when I sold them were as follows:

Fiesta Zetec 33k
Mondeo ST24 120k
Z3 97k
Golf GTI 70k
Bora 96k (current)

Fiesta I had from new which is why its the exception smile

16 k on the 10 plate Insignia in 9 months.
57 k on the 944, but it's been round the clock so 157 k.
190 k on the 928.

My current Golf GT TDi has done 85k, it's a 2002 02 plate
My van, a VW Transporter T5 130 has done 89k it's a 2005 05 plate

Not had the Golf long, but it's definitely a keeper, so Its going to rise above 100k by next year, the van if I'm as busy as I was this year with it will be at 100k by September.

Not much by all accounts

53 Accord 2.4 has nearly 80k, bought with 68 on it. Keep thinking to change it but in reality its not even near its half engine life. Biggest issue is the ever increasing cost of fuel for it.

Wifes 07 Vitara has 34k, did 2k in it last month on holiday.
Crx track car has 145k on it. Spent a whole day at Brands bouncing off the limiter!

If you check your trip computer you probably average 35mph.

That's 95 days & nights in your car dude! (And with the 220 days you post on PH, what do you do with the other 50 days hehe)

My RS6 is now approaching 100,000. Never had a car with over 100,000 miles before.
Cannot think why i would change other than a newer reg and a few less miles. Cannot justify the 30k or so that this would cost.
