150150

The most miles I've put on one car by far and counting. Dents, sticky transmission and all, its a great goat, and people hauler.
I know this falls short of some of you.
How high have you made it?

Just took my Honda Accord in to be serviced today, at 163,892. I love being thrifty with a car that runs and runs and runs.

Not too shabby! We had a Corsica that we turned over at least once and who knows if it had rolled before we got it!

Wow, Great! Yes, it's wonderful to drive them "forever." We've had Fords in the family that were handed down to the kids and had more than 200,000 miles on them when finally replaced. Of course, that was more than one driver, but it was all in the family. :)

I put 280,000+ on my last vehicle- a Dodge Caravan. I drive them till them drop.

This is a post I could have written, except I'm now at 157, 413. I feel bad, too, because I bought my Subaru brand new - my first new car ever - in October 2003...only 7 years ago. The farm life really takes a toll, but it's a good commuter car, too (that's where most of the miles have come from). I can't say I've hauled cattle in it, though, nor do I plan to start! The Forester model just isn't big enough. ;)

Well my Explorer is a 2000 and I'm going to try and catch up with some of you if she'll let me.

I went to do the Cash for Clunker thing last year, but I couldn't get them to give anything past the Fed money, so I kept her.

She gets new tires and a drink of oil this week, so we're committed for a few more miles anyway.
