A good friend of mine has a 73 Super Beetle with I think 750k miles. It's probably more than 750k though.

I personally owned a 88 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 and got 493,000 miles on it before it died in the middle of Rt 7 Tysons directly in front of Rosenthal Honda. Three hours later I had an Accord and they had a POS Jeep.

I bought my prelude brand new back in 2001 and just about to hit the 100k mark and have done nothing to it but changed the oil...not even the brakes yet.

K and I sold out 96 landcruiser which had 172k miles on it...ran like the day we bought it, no issues at all mechanically. I hope my FJ is as reliable.

I ended up with about the same...around 260K....when I bought it, it had 159K and I only owned it for 2 1/2 yrs.

The most I've seen on an odo personally was on a Peterbuilt semi w/over 600K.

My father put 500k+ on an early nineties Chevy Astro...then passed it on to someone else at his company. It should be in the 700k's by now.

Then he bought another one with 225k...I think it's in the 400k's now.

You will seriously want to do a 90k on this car. Original fluids.....shooo.
Also do timing belt, water pump, and all other belts.

Honda original brake pads always seem to last longer for some reason. I've had some orignals last 77k.

I hit 175k on my 88 acura legend. Sold it to a buddy, he took it past 200k until the motor finally died. This car wasn't maintained at all.

Best I ever saw was 320,000 miles on my 86 Pontiac Fiero. It became my commuter car, and it just never died. It had 140,000 on it already when I bought it as a teenager though.

I once had a GMC vintage 1993 last a whole 36,000 miles and to get to that mark I had to replace everything twice except the motor! I was so happy that GMC came up with a way to keep the auto parts industry going!!!
