My parents have bought all their cars brand new, and have never put over 100,000 miles on any of them. They do tend to keep cars until they start to fall apart, so I find this unusual. The closest they’ve come is 95,000 on a 1985 Toyota Tercel.
I’m a fairly new driver, so I’ve only had one car, a 1986 Pontiac Parisienne Safari. It had 37,770 miles when I bought it from an old man in 3/00. Now it has 46,300.
So, who here has owned cars with a lot of miles? I know many people who have clocked impressive mileage on cars, such as the following:
1979 Ford Econoline 250: 350,000+ (sold, maybe still going)
1982 Pontiac 6000 LE: 282,000
1988 Hyundai Excel GS: 255,000
1993 Plymouth Voyager SE: 220,000 (still going)
1980 Cadillac Sedan DeVille: 210,000
1987 Nissan Stanza Van: 162,000+ (sold, maybe still going)
1987 Jeep Cherokee Pioneer: 140,000 (still going)
Has anyone here beat my uncle’s 350K Econoline?
