When I tell people how many miles my wifes car has on it their eyes get about twice the size. It will need valve seals soon. That will be the first time the motor has ever been cracked open. She drives a little over 100 miles a day 6 days a week. Then maybe more on the Sundays.

my boss's Volvo (early 80s coupe) that he bought new has been retired as of friday when we removed the rear axle assembly and transmission for a customer who needed a new axle assembly and transmission.

Stump Jumper -- 976,000 miles.

Now the project for monday morning first thing is getting it off my lift!!

My 89 Cherokee, Jeeper just rolled over 235,000 miles. I drive 70 miles a day.

Worked on a 2003 V70 NA with 456,000 miles the other week. (interior was shot OMFG)

Man, that's a shame. Just 32,000 more miles to 1 million. I would have pressed for a little more.
