Are You a Member of the High Mileage Club?

By August 12, 2010

Follow me on:

I'd love to tell you how many miles I have on my car, but the odometer died four years ago. (I guess 90,000 miles is all it was interested in recording.)

That's okay. It really isn't important. What is important is that this is the car that got me through college, that saw me into married life, and that now hauls my family around town. It's never left me stranded; it's never stuck me with a large repair bill. It's just been a good, reliable car.

My brothers-in-law used to make wagers about when we'd replace it. They thought the birth of our first child would do it. Nope. They thought the birth of our second child would do it. Nope again. When you have a good thing, you don't mess with it. This car is paid for, and it serves our needs.

Do you drive a high-mileage vehicle? How many miles have you racked up?

I too have a 1996 Mazda 626 and I’m the 2nd owner. It’s quite the gas saver, due to the fact that it’s a 5 speed. I love my lil car and it has well over 250k miles. I’ve had some minor work done over the three years I’ve had it, but I definitely plan on driving it til the wheels fall off (literally)!

My 1997 Toyota Corolla has 251,000+ miles on it. I love that car! It’s agile, zippy, and fun to drive. I’ve never had a major repair. If I still had a decent mechanic, I’d consider keeping the car even longer. But I’ve been shopping for a replacement, and the cars made recently make me appreciate my Corolla even more!

(17) MarthaL says:

My 1980 Dodge Colt has 448,700 miles on it. Gets me from point A to point B. We have 2 kids, now aged 9 and 13, that have grown up not knowing any other vehicle than this baby blue gem. This is our only family vehicle (my husband cannot and will not drive and has always taken a job he can walk to) and it is the little engine that could. The vehicle has been involved in two head-on collisions and a few side swipes and corner hits, so the alignment is a little out of whack which increases my tire expense. But look at the money I’m saving on car payments. I get the tires rotated once a month to get a little more life out of these and replace the whole set once a quarter. AC blows only hot air for years and years now, which can be tough in South Florida this time of year. My friend Donna and I go out for girl’s night in this all the time. We’re going out again on Wednesday nite. South Beach, here we come!

(18) Alta says:

I drive my trusted 1998 VW Jetta CLX that has already clocked 251K+ miles. I bought it from my sister (1st owner) when it had done about 103K miles. A few minor dents and scrapes but everything still works 100%. Parts that become run down are replaced when needed but it still costs me much less per year that a new car would. I have a great mechanic who says that it can do at least another 250K miles. My son have tried many times in the past to get me to replace it, but I know what I have in my car and consider it a challenge to see how many miles it will actually do. Love my car.

Our 2001 Ford Contour has over 205,000 and going strong. the body is starting to show some age, rust and paint blotching. My husband is a fanatic about changing oil regularly but does little other upkeep on it. He was so sad to lose his old Ford Ranger a year or so ago w/ just under 300,000 miles but it finally blew in a big way. And no you can’t be vehicle proud w/ these, just grateful for good dependable service.

I drive a 1986 Custom Cruiser station wagon. 160,000. Original engine. Does not burn oil. A/C works fine. Radio does not……Needs a paint job. Get offers to buy it but are not interested in selling it. Its worth more to me than them……..
My hubby drives a 1988 Boneville Pontia. 170,000 miles. Also original engine. All works fine, paint faded needs a paint job as well…..Still going strong………

I am so thrilled to see that there are people who drive more than I do!!
I have a 1995 Toyota Camry wagon that just flipped over to 194,000 this week. I have only had the car since 2005 and have put 108,000+ miles on it (and it practically sat for 5 months one time without being driven!). No rust, just some scratches: one memorable run in with a deer. The interior could use a good cleaning but is in great shape. I had to replace the AC a couple of years ago. I just wish that they still made a Camry wagon: I’d buy another one!

(29) Cynthia says:

Just replaced my 1994 Toyota Corolla at 302,000 miles. Old blue was still running great and had never left me stranded or needed major repair. She did need oil a little more often and neither of the front windows would roll down, but the a/c worked. I swear by the regularly scheduled maintenance. I bought another Corolla and hope to get another 15+ years and 300,000 out of her.

(32) a.z. foy says:

we’ve had such fun! learned through a class at a local college to ride motorcycles. my wife first rode a 125cc scooter that got 95mpg (and drove it easily even at 55mph). she rode it to work and on errands for over a year. i was riding a small-engine honda 250cc for a few months (60+ mpg), afterward buying a series of motorcycles over the last three years. coincidingly, my wife began first riding the 250 honda, moving up to a 650 suzuki v-star (very retro-looking!!). we both use our motorcycles in lieu of our cars as often as possible (75% of the year). we get somewhere in the range of 50mpg or more on each of them. and? we’re having a blast doing it—the SAFE way. never tho’t we’d be doing this in our 50s—hahaha!

My 2000 Subaru has 248,000 and my mechanic says it should get at least another 250,000. I take annual roadtrips with my dogs from California to Washington and Colorado, so my mileage isn’t the day-in-day out commute style, but more short-term long-haul truck driver style. :)

2003 Dodge Grand Caravan almost at 203,000 miles. Bought it used in ’04 w/abt 30k on it. There’s something in the engine that has always whined some (no mechanic can tell me what it is) and the whining is louder on cold mornings (I don’t blame it one bit!). I go thru tires at least once a year and sometimes rotors need to be replaced (more often than I prefer). Had to replace the windshield x1 b/c of a crack that split (got another crack 3 months after I replaced it – aarrgghh!) and the joints are starting to creak/pop. Other than that, it’s been an absolute gem! I wonder if the majority of the older cars are some shade of blue? Mine is blue silver.

One 1972 Dodge Dart about 430,000 miles after needing engine rebuilt close to 400,000 and one 1971 Plymouth Satellite station wagon at about 150,000 miles. I need to drive about 5 miles to get the “old fashioned” gas to keep them both moving, especially the Plymouth:)

Do all the maintenence…oil changes, transmission fluid, shocks, brakes and you will get many yrs out of your vehicle. My husband keeps spiral bound college ruled notebooks to log all maintence on every car, truck, motorcycle, lawnmower etc that we’ve ever had for the last 25yrs. If we sell something we have the records…and they do impress the buyers.

Bought a 1990 Dodge 150 Ram new. Just sold it less than a year ago with only 75,000 miles on it. It was going to cost too much to fix it up. But the engine still run like a charm after 20 years.

(46) Nessi says:

I drive a ’00 Chrysler Concorde LXI and currently we are at roughly 136,000 miles…although I know some of you are much higher in miles, I don’t drive as much as I am a at home worker. The car still looks brand new and the interior is pretty darn good! I have NO PLANS on trading it in or up for something else. “Black Beauty” as we have lovingly named her has had NO Major issues-only basic maintenance like oil changes, tune up, brakes, windshield wipers, etc. The only major thing I did was have to replace was the water pump. Other than that Black Beauty is running strong and I will not be a part of the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” club and get something new. PULEASE!!!! Money is too tight as is..and like I said I work from home so no sense in even thinking of getting rid of my girl. You rock Black Beauty!!!!!!!

Our vehicles all become high mileage. The two best: A Chevy Citation which we gave away at 305,000 miles and kept going for several years longer, and a 1999 Toyota Camry which now has 287,000 miles on it. It was hit in a parking lot yesterday and we will have to find out if insurance will pay for it to get fixed.

Hi. We have a 1996 Astro Van, AWD. It is on the 3rd transmission and 2nd engine and turned 621k km last month.

I did replace the rocker panels due to rust last summer. I had the under carriage blasted and painted 3 times since new.

The only time I was stranded was due to a failed fuel pump. Regular maintenance is the key.

I wash it almost every dat wax it twice a month.I am in the process of buy my friends 2006 yukon.I changed the oil every 3000 miles with syn.oil.The only problem I have with my yukon is the Paint is flaking off and the dealers tell me it’s because of the miles.I have never rolled my car or been in a accident and its clear the body was not prepped properly.if anybody knows how to get GM to repaint my door and roof I would greatly appreciate it.

My 1995 Mazda 626 (DX) will hit 300,000 in a few days. Been a fantastic car with no real repair issues and still pulls down 29mpg! I’m going to retire it now because it’s getting to the point where major repairs are all but inevitable, but by far this has been my most reliable and economical car ever. Thanks Mazda for many great miles!

My 1992 Toyota Camry was turned over to to my daughter at 400,000 km and she put 18,000 km on it then sold it in 2001 fir $1000. My 1998 Toyota Camry turned 408,000 km in Nov. 2010 and I gave it to someone that needed a car badly and am sure that it will give her many more years of service. Let’s see how my 2009 Mini Cooper Clubman performs. It’s so much fun to drive and is saving me about 28 litres per week in comparison. That covers the insurance for the year.

(67) Tim V. says:

I bought my 1995 Toyota Camry about three years ago with 134,000 miles. Over the last three years I have delivered pizza’s with it daily, and have beat the &@#% out of it. It was hit in the passenger fender in a parking lot, rear ended by an SUV, and I hit a deer going 75 with it on the highway. I’ve never had any body work done to it and all of the damage is hardly noticeable. It’s got a little rust now because I live in a rural area in Michigan, lots of gravel roads. Overall its been a great car and is currently at 231,895 miles and doesn’t run or drive any different. It’s the best car I’ve ever owned and I’d suggest a Camry to anyone.

P.S. It’s also 27,000 overdue for an oil change. I run synthetic oil and it uses one quart every 4000 miles.

I was just hit and totaled my 1997 Buick Skylark. It had 189,939 miles and purred like a kitten. Amazing car.
My uncle’s 1968 Camaro was his daily driver until 2003 and he forgot whether the odometer had turned over 5 or 6 times. He did have a rod replaced in his 327 V8 in 1988.
I’m about to buy a friend’s 1994 Civic with 170,000 and a new engine and tires. Looking forward to driving it another couple of hundred thousand miles!

So if you want a great truck get a S-10 with a V-6 and you wont be dissapointed. My other is a 1999 2-door Tahoe with 216,000 miles and like my s-10 runs like a top. The trick is Lucas Oil additive I live by it and the proof is in the pudding.

Our girl has earned her place in the garage. We still drive the world with her. She has never let us down!

(80) Robbie says:

I have a 97 Toyota Tacoma X-td cab with 346,890 miles. I have raw-hided it since it was new. It has the original clutch, engine, gaskets, hoses, rear brake shoes, mostly original paint. It is white and gets handwashed and waxed at least once per year. I commute 50 miles at my newest job and regularly criuse at 70 mph! This is by far the best vehicle I have ever owned, and the most economical. I have gotten 25 to 30 MPG since it was new. Change all fluids regularly and most vehicle will last. I have run the same brand oil and filter every oil change (3000 miles). I even pull a trailer from time to time. Not to heavy though, it has a hard time up hills when I have 2800 lbs. on trailer! It has the 2.4 liter four w/5spd. manual. If I live long enough I hope to hit 1 million miles or at least 500,000.

The only work I have done to it is water pump, v/c gaskets, axles and service (tune ups, oil changes, transmission services, ect.). I have never really cared for Dodge products before but this van has changed my mind next time I need a van I’ll look at Dodge or Chrysler first.

(148) John in Las Vegas says:

We purchased our 1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer in Phoenix in 1998 when the car had less than 1,000 miles. It now has 182,000 miles (end of 2012). We have given the car excellent care and attention, and it has served us well in hot weather and cold. During the severe Montana winters we appreciated the all wheel drive.
The body and interior are still in great condition. I always park away from other cars.
For years it was our only car. My wife now has a 2008 Cadillac CTS, so the Explorer has little use. But, we do plan on driving it to California for the holidays because of the extra space for packages and luggage.
What a wonderful car this has been for all of these years!

(150) John says:

2004 Buick Lesabre Limited. I just hit 300,000 miles last night. Looks showroom new inside and out. Bought it brand new in 2004. Only problems have been brake pads, rotors, one battery, tires and some light bulbs. Dash lights are starting to burn out one by one, but I’ll get those fixed. Nothing at all major. Same engine, same transmission, same alternator, save suspension. I never thought I’d make it to 300,000, but now I’m going to try and aim for 500,000 after reading these comments.

The car just won’t die, won’t rust, won’t fall apart–I’ve more than gotten my money’s worth from this car, and it’s so comfortable and reliable that I fear parting with it (I’ll never find a suitable replacement).

This is also the first car I’ve ever kept beyond about 50,000 miles, too!

1994 Mazda Protage just turned over 410,000 miles yesterday. After reading the comments above, a wash to celebrate seems right. Can’t remember the last one but I think it was in 2012. Original engine, head and trans. I’ve done plugs, wires, belts and hoses, but haven’t got around to third oil change or first trans fluid change yet. Solid machine.

(161) Maze Dodo says:

I bought my 1998 Toyota Camry from a Mitsubishi dealer in 2003. They had convinced a woman to trade it in for a Mitsubishi Galant. It had 68,000 miles on it.
After 10 years, I have 289,000+ miles on it. It runs smooth. Just normal wear and tear (kids spills, etc. – gotta do some interior cleaning). I drive an average 80-85mph and the engine doesn’t cry. I’ve tested it around 102mph and it was still smooth on the interstate.
I’ve had to recently replace the exhaust system due to rusty flanges and other part (too much snow and salt effect in upstate NY).
Other than that, I believe it will go 450,000+. We’ll see.

I have a 1994 Toyota Camry SLE I bought from the original owner in January of 2005 with 275,000 miles. A friend of mine knew the owner. and they were highway miles, if that makes a difference. I now have just short of 337,000 miles on this car. I have put some money into it, but it is just an awesome car. It leaks a little oil, but doesn’t burn it. Still a very smooth ride. Much better than a car payment and high insurance.

Hasn’t had a front end alignment in years with perfect tire wear.Incredible value, shows what proper maintenance can do. Maintain oil and coolant and a car will last.

So, I hope I qualify for the High Mileage Club, with over 348,000 miles on my 2003 Ford Windstar. I drive it a lot !! It is reliable and makes me lots of money, hauling freight for my courier business. Had to replace the tranny at 155K…..with a used one. Had to replace the coil pack once, wires, etc. Normal stuff. And tires? Every year a new set, just before winter. Now oil changes? About every 3-4 weeks. And the driver pwr window is the only thing that does not work on this baby. I LOVE IT !!

Bought my 2002 Mazda Protege5 when it only had five miles on it and now is at above 201,000 miles. Everything works still. Best and most reliable car I’ve ever had. If it had AWD, I would have never bought my 2006 Volvo V70R…maybe though, it’s fast and fun.

Had a 1988 Plymouth Voyager, bought with 170,000 on it. AT 200,000 valve seals went in the 3.0L Mitsubishi SOHC V-6 ( a known problem).Was a tech for 18 years so did it myself Other repairs were done over the years but nothing unusual. Finally trans went at 223,000 so I junked it. Then was given a 1998 Windstar by a friend, 217,000 on it but was immaculately maintained by his cousin. Will drive this one till
it falls apart! :-)

My ’92 Camry just rolled 350,000 miles today on the original engine, transmission and starter!!

I totally wrecked it 2 months ago, and just put parts from a u pull it on it!

I had the dealer seal up all the leaks 7 years ago…and it still doesnt leak a drop!
I drive a minimum of 100 miles a day around phoenix and I love my Camry!
I maintain it ferociously!
Perfect alignment…I use Perelli’s
If it breaks…I fix it!
No smoke…and it gets 28.2 miles per gallon!!
I’ll buy another one ANY day!
I have pics of the damage before and after…and the odometer rolling over…that’s a video
Does anyone have more miles? just curious

February 28, 2013 at 7:56 am
(176) Rob Shelton says:

1993 Camry 4cyl with Automatic trans. Has 401,000 miles on it and still going well. Oil & filter changed every 3500 miles. I purchased it at 119k and have done all the maintenance on it since then and the engine and trans have never had a major repair! And no, I wouldn’t believe that either. Of course many seals and gaskets, broken wires in the harness and several sets of struts, have been replaced. Still has the original starter, AC compressor and clutch, PS pump and rack, fuel injectors, wheel bearings, distributor and module, and unbelievably, the original muffler! Although I’m starting to notice a little noise, at the current rate it might be 40 thousand more miles until it really needs doing. And they laughed at me for buying 80k tires when the car had 130k, three sets of tires ago…

This was my college car, and has never missed a bet. Just before 300,000 my mechanic did a timing belt, and head gasket. The head gasket was original…my mechanic was amazed–and we still use this gem as a road tripper :D :D My Paseo loves the open highway and still gets near 40 miles to gallon on the open road :D :D VIVA Paseo!

Car is still going strong, chugs up the hills just fine, beats many newer powerful cars at the light (they are lulled into false sense of security thinking my older beater car is sluggish).

I can quickly accelerate, and (hypothetically of course) easily go faster than legal speed limit. ;)

I bought my 1995 Ford F 150 extended cab with a 302 cu in engine and automatic transmission, from a car lot in San Diego, CA back in 1999! I believe it had 67,000 miles on the original engine and transmission. It has since made several trips across country between San Diego, CA and East Texas! Today I currently have 309,510.5 miles on the original power train! The only things I’ve had to change out have been water pumps, AC compressor, fuel pump, alternators, and a new distributor! I have to add a quart of oil per month and that’s just because of seal leaks! The engine still has good compression and I can still pull a 16 foot cage trailer fully loaded with whatever in it down the highway at 55 mph! I regularly drive it down the highway at 80 mph and it gets on down the road no problem! I’m going to sell my old reliable here this month and move up to a newer used Ford and it will be like losing an old friend!

It’s owned outright (just paid the thing off), and this car runs great..just like new. Obviously, from my tire choice, I’m looking for at least 100,000 additional miles on it, and hopefully many more!! No rust, and routine maintenance..runs like (and with an upcoming coat of white) looks like new. Gone are the days when I run out and get another car payment. I’m driving this thing until it drives no more! Excellent car! :)

My 1998 Camry has 231,000 miles. The cassette deck broke years ago, but no one uses those tapes anymore anyway. The radio’s reception isn’t great, but the CD player still works. I’ve changed batteries and tires over the years, but nothing major. I tell everyone the car has measles because the manufacturer’s paint didn’t quite match when I touched up the nicks and rust spots. Oil change faithfully every 3,000 miles. I was sorry to learn that the 2014 Camry failed the new safety test. I hope they fix the problem before I need a new car in a few years, but for now I absolutely love my car!

I’ll be back when I get to 300K….I hope.

Transmission’s been rebuilt once. The engine is original. Still runs like a top. Little things break, and I just fix them and keep going. The next project is to do the do-it-yourself HVAC blend door repair.

I have 235k on an 03 corolla. I plan to take it to at least 299,999. The odometer on 03-08 corollas and matrixes have a bug and that is where they stop working.

March 3, 2014 at 11:33 pm
(288) Sneaky says:

I am not impressed by how many miles I have on my car but by some of the things I have not had to fix in those miles. My spark plugs and rear struts have 235k on them as do 3 out of 4 wheel bearings. The real amazing one is that I have never had the rear brakes done. Every time they have been checked in the last five years they have told me the same thing; “about 20% pad life left.” I assume they no longer actually do anything. Whatever the case it stops just fine.

March 5, 2014 at 2:00 am

March 13, 2014 at 6:20 pm

I have a 1997 Saturn SL2 that I had bought in 2007 for $3000.00. When I bought it it had 89,000 miles on it and now it has 111.000 miles on it. I have done some work on it like replace a water pump, brakes, transmission filter, fuel filter, spark plugs and wires, dome light, tires, exhaust system, wiper blades, heater core. The hood paint is wearing off and I was told that in this year of the car the paint came off the car, now I have to paint the hood of the car. I found a place that will sell me a quart of paint for $80.00 so I can paint the hood. The interior upholstery is coming down so this weekend I will be spraying glue up in there to put the upholstery back up. This is a great car and runs great. I love it. The only thing is-I cannot find parts for this car because GM no longer makes parts for my car. I need another dome light, bumper, and a passenger’s side visor for my car. I am not planning on selling my car as I like older cars, they are easier to work on.
