GMC Sierra 193K
BMW 520i 150K
BMW 330d 115K
Lexus LS400 130K
Volvo S60 122K
Honda Accord 104K

Unless I win the lottery, the next one will most likely have 6 figure mileage when I buy it.

E Class clicked over to 250k yesterday, no issues and planning to keep for a while yet. Last one did 320k so have got to beat that.

Other halves Renault Scenic 136k and a complete bag of st, falling to bits, but the engine and gearbox are good.

My current smart is just about to hit the 98,000 mile mark and should (in theory) get to 100k in a couple of months. My previous one got to 60,000 before I traded it when the engine blew up. (The current one's engine blew up at 44,800 miles but as I'd spent a bit on it already, I decided to get this one rebuilt.)

My first car, a Fiat Cinquecento Sporting was on around 65,000 miles when I traded it for the first smart.

Hmm, I'm actually surprised that the majority seem to be over 100,000 miles.

84k at the moment, so in all fairness below mileage for the age as that works out as approx 7k per year (maths bods work it out yourselves as a fun party game).

Previous 206 was sold on at 90k, but this was only due to it starting to cost more money than it was worth-however I do know it's still running and I'd assume has broken the 100k barrier by now. The Partner is still running strong at 125k (Just over 20k per year). The only car I've had that didn't pass the 100k mark was the ZX and that was only due to death by Nigerian driver in a Carina E who tried to claim that my stationary car went into hers. Slightly annoyed as it was at 99,997.

Most modern engines can do 500,000 miles with ease.

However the body is normally fooked by 15 years and the electronics could of gone south way before then.

'09 Passat 2.0 TDI on around 40k at the moment. This car eats up the motorway miles, doing around 53mpg in the process. Most I have managed on one tank is around 775 miles. It will run easily over 200k no doubt.

So the PH mean for daily drivers seems to be between 75k and 100k miles.

Saying that that horn seem to have a intermittent problem (doesn't always work with the lights on)
That's a faulty CIM, and there's a recall for all Mk5 Astras to fix it. smile


Myself, I'm running a 54-plate Mondeo 1.8, just about to hit 64k. Just refreshed the suspension and brakes all round (the car spent it's previous life doing school runs and shopping trips).

Currently 232k on my Lexus Ls400 and 205k on my wife's 5th gen Prelude 2.2 VTEC. Both used daily with utter reliablity.

Audi A6 - 135000 and the turbo just died
Seat Ibiza - 128000 and the gearbox bearings are on their way
TVR - 36000
Yamaha YZF600 - 34000

No intention of changing any. Thankfully I have AA parts and labour for the larger bills.
