I'm in, not a vehicle most would think could last this long and it will go even longer, i was shooting for 500k and would of gotten there in 3 yrs but my commute changed and now it will take 17.5yrs so thats not gonna happen with me behind the wheel
2004 Mitsubishi Galant, 2.4L 4 cyl Auto, has been trouble free (knock on wood) nothing but regular maint which i am super anal about on my vehicles, does not use more than 1/2qt oil between changes (just conventional oil btw) and still drives just fine. For me personally this is my newest vehicle in my fleet (my wife's vehicle is a 2013), all my other personal cars all have 150k or less and that includes a 1968, 1996, 2002 and a 2005

We should also add low miles bragging rights, my 2005 vehicle only has 29k on it, my dad has a 2000 Honda with less that 20k on it  :yike: and it looks factory new in and out, he recently had to have the airbags done under recall and the dealership took pictures of his car.

Iíve got an 06 Charger Daytona with 23500 miles on her.

My wife drives a 1993 Chevy Caprice Classic station wagon with the wood panels and way back seat. She hauls our boys around with kayaks, canoes, and fishing/crabbing gear in that car. It's got less than 200,000 miles on it. The thing just keeps on ticking. At this rate, it'll be a classic car in 2 years. We bought it in 2007 for $2000 cash from the original owner. At the time, it only had 55K miles on it.  Best money we've ever spent. Original engine, original transmission, no major issues.
Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate. - Psalm 127:3-5

Put 240,000 in ten years on a 2002 Dodge Intrepid.  Drove it like I stole it.   Replaced brakes, tires, oil and filters as needed.  Had to replace the starter.  Had original battery when traded in.  Wife still misses it.  About the same on a 97 Dakota.

My daily driver is a 2004 Subaru Outback with 270000 on it. I bought it with 120000 miles and have done very little to it besides tires and oil changes. Hope to get another 100000 out of it.

 Just got done replacing a leaking coolant hose between the heater core and back of the head. Who knew those things needed to be changed at half a million miles! :chuckle:
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

I almost have 218,000 on my '04 Toyota Tundra double cab 4WD with the 4.7. Only thing done to it so far is the timing belt and water pump at 150,000. Struts and shocks done at 205,000. Hoping to hit the 500k mark with this truck down the road. I love driving this truck whether it's up in the woods, pulling the 18' bass boat or cruising down the highway.

I have the same rig with 277k,  great truck.

388,000 Toyota tacoma 2001.  Clutch, 3 sets of Toyota pads, center bearing, coil packs and plugs.  Still doesn't leak oil.  2.7litre.  That truck makes me money every time I start it up.
