Here is the odo while I rolled over 100K miles. Not quite as exciting with the new fangled electronic ones. The car is a 99' Saturn SL2. Not too bad thus far. I will fix the pics asap.

I knew it had to be a domestic, when 100k is a big deal

A guy I know has 400,000+ on a BMW, not sure if hes had any major repairs though.

I'm going to turn 250,00 this week on my 89 Oldsmobile that I drive to work. The most serious repair its ever had done was a fuel pump and its never had the transmission fluid changed...or checked for that matter now that I think about it.

My parents owned a package delivery company, and we had several E250 and 350 vans with over 1,000,000 miles on them. They averaged about 100K/year until the 9-10 year when they would be slowly phased into the backup van role, and then to be canabalized for spare parts.

mine wouldnt do 110 if I wanted to, 5.29 gears tend to slow it down a bit

189k on a Nissan pickup before I rolled it.

274k on my Nissan Sentra before it needed a new timing chain. Quoted ~$900 installed, so I junked it. Somebody probably fixed it up and is driving it now.

I put 202k on my 94 Cherokee then parked it when I bought my truck. Sold it to a guy recently, he called me later and said he got it off the trailer, charged the battery and it started right up after sitting a year. I figured at least the gas in it was bad, but apparently it was still good enough to ignite.

~350k on a conpletely original 88 GMC 350 in a 2500 Sierra

You must have an '80s Toyota pickup or 4-runner. That dash looks very, very familiar.


Mine only has 142K though.

My GF was in the back seat and took the pic from there. Although I have a lack of common sense enough to do that.

My 1991 Nissan Sentra has 193K. I just changed the original battery this winter, it has the original clutch, original suspension. Never had any problems with it. Bought it when it had 58K on it. My wife used to have a 1989 Honda Accord hatchback, that had about 230K on it, with the original exhaust.

331,008 miles on my 1990 Cadillac DeVille. No major problems thus far except a new wheel bearing at 240k. Still rides and runs like a dream and gets 27 mpg on the interstate and 20 in the city. Yeah, I know it's pretty dirty.

I think it's an on and off kind of deal. Base model cars, luxury cars, and trucks don't normally come with high MPH speedometers. I don't know why though as I'd be willing to bet my Caddy is good for atleast 115.

Mine's a 85 22R (carbed) 4 speed manual, at WOT in 4th gear I can do 102-103mph. I've loaned the truck out more than once and got comments back like "Hey, your 5th gear doesn't work! "

That should be no problem for a diesel. My dad has an 83? mercedes diesel, and it had 37x,xxx on the odo the first time I rode in the car a year or so ago. I jokingly asked if that was all the miles he had on the thing. He stated that the odometer had broken... in the mid eighties. His friend used to own the car and drove the snot out of it before using is as a backup. My dad seems to just hit deer with the darn thing.
