What's the highest mileage you've ever had on a car?

Apparently 200,000 miles wasn't that impressive last time I posted

2y ago

Last year I wrote a piece on being part of the mile high club. Before you get hot under the collar, I’m talking about owning a car that reached the special 200,000 miles on the odometer club.

The response was fantastic from you guys with loads of you regaling stories of your highest mileage cars and what they meant to you. I’ve made it no secret that I am a huge fan of a workhorse car as I grew up with a Peugeot 405 estate with 180,000 miles on the clock among other everyday hero cars.

The biggest surprise to me was that there was a considerable amount of you that considered 200,000 miles to not be that big of an achievement. I was greeted by livid Americans with Chevy trucks that had been to the moon and back on one tank of gas. I had Australians telling me of their Falcon had discovered Pluto and got back with half a tank left. So, I’ll admit I may have misjudged how impressive 200,000 miles is.

Here are a few of the messages blowing my car out the water:

This is your chance to let me know what the most miles/km you’ve had on your car in the comments. Bonus points if you can post a picture of your car in the comments, double bonus if you can post a picture of the odometer.

If you are going to make bold claims of a 500,000 miles car, can you post picture as proof if possible!

    • Jesus! Taxis are a special case, but that is still damned impresive
