We have a v90 cross country with 205 miles delivered yesterday

A grand Cherokee with 85k faultless miles

And an 80 series Landcruiser with 205,000 mileson it.

It wouldn't take much to make the Landcruiser feellikeamore solid car than the Volvo!

All mine are over 100k miles at least 15 years old. I could afford to buy something newer, but I cant even get my man maths calculator to justify the depreciation on a single car that will only do a few thousand miles a year.
The whole ‘must have something new/impressive’ on the drive has passed me by. My smartest car sits hidden in the garage and my p38 smoker and the wife’s a4 are on the drive.

My Mondeo st is on around 130k currently. It’ll stay till it isn’t worth my pocket or time to repair...but that will take a lot as I love it dearly.

My jag is on 76k

The Astra G I drive in Bulgaria has just ticked over 170k miles but that's on its second dashboard (it was changed from km to miles when it was imported to the UK). I think it was on about 150k km on the original so that puts it on about 260k miles in total. It looks a bit tatty but still goes well enough and is remarkably original. Because labour is so cheap here it takes an awful lot more to put cars "beyond economical repair" and broken components which garages would just blindly replace in the UK actually get fixed.

Our cars in the UK are now on about 130k and 58k for the Skoda and Lotus respectively, I think.

My 58 520d clicked over 200k last week. I’d been looking forward to this minor landmark for about four months; the car was outside on 199999 when my wife got up early and took it to the doctors.

Daily is a 2006 C6 3.0 Allroad.... just ticked over onto 112,000 miles. I’d quite like a Disco 4 or maybe a bi-turbo C7 Allroad, but can’t justify purchasing one when the current car does everything I need it to (I’ve owned 3 and they are fantastic bits of kit). It’s got a few nicks and marks here and there, but it sailed through its MOT last week and wafted the family down to South Wales yesterday without missing a beat. I’m really rather fond of it and it (in my opinion) still looks smart (and classless) when compared to more modern metal. My friend is a senior Audi Tech and says that the 3.0 lump is good for well over 200k.

Hope it’s feeling better soon smile

My 20065 e60 535d just turned 150k

Had it for 4 years and put 70k miles on it - Costs me tyres and Servicing

I traded my 2001 WRX PPP wagon (148k) for it and it is just as quick (in a straight line wink )

I am loathed to swap it as it is a superb motorway muncher

E-Class diseasel daily: just turned 95k miles. Barely run in, still drives like new.

987S toy - just passed 85k miles. Also still drives like new, but unlike the Merc has had all the suspension replaced, new wheel bearings, brake refresh including master cylinder, new rads, uprated IMS bearing......... whereas the Merc has had its standard services and nothing else but tyres, pads & discs.
