Since this is BITOG, so was wondering who has driven or had(or still have) a really high mileage vehicle?

As *High Mileage* is a relative term, I had an Accord with 254K miles.

2006 Civic EX 200K/AT
2006 Acura TSX 177K/AT

2001 Dodge Ram 2wd bought new. 270,000 miles.

Tranny rebuilt @ 238,000 - new fuel pump around the same time - one water pump replaced - three fan clutches until we got it right - new front brakes, original rears - three sets of Michelins (need to buy #4 set soon before next winter)- several serpentine belts (to be careful) - couple of sets of front brakes and rotors.

Oil and filter changes about every 2500 miles. Started out with Castrol GTX, but 2/3 of the oil changes have been Trop-Artic Syn Blend 10-30.

Rockers have never been off the engine (5.9L). Original injectors (lots of Techron and Seafoam)

My daily driver. Wouldn't hesitate to take it cross country tomorrow (after an oil change, of course). Outside of a couple of dimples she looks and drives like new.

200+K is nothing really and is expected nowadays. Going over 300K deserves kudos. We have a handful of members here (that I've read) that have odometers exceeding 400K. There's probably a half-dozen more I missed.

Being 26 I've only put a moderate amount of miles on any one vehicle. 50K on my GMC, 70K on my Cruze (before wifey took it over), and less than 10K each on the others. My Suburban has 331K (possibly 431K) but is on small block #4. However I've been present to the accumulation of lots of miles on several vehicles - primarily my dad's '86 Chevy 3/4 ton pickup and '97 '1/2 ton Suburban. 361K and 440-something, respectively. Transmission rebuilds on both but no engine rebuilds/replacements.
I like Chevy and Valvoline.

'13 Cruze, 1.4T, 113K
'85 GMC C3500, 454, 130K
'82 Mercedes 300CD, OM617 turbo, 169K
'67 Suburban, 350, 331K

At work we've had a number of S-10s and Express vans over 300k. Surprisingly the ones that go that far have relatively few repairs.

I gave an 83 Toyota pick up (22R) away because of rust when it had just over 500k miles.

I would still see the truck on the road a couple of years later.

I only ever ran 20w-50 in that truck.

'02 Camry, 2.4 liter, 267K miles;
'95 Dodge Dakota, 3.9 liter V-6, 222K miles;
'11 Highlander, 2.7 liter, 129K miles
'10 Sonata, 2.4 liter, 93k miles
'84 BMW R100RT, 70K miles

All are still active in the family fleet and generally rust-free (a minor accomplishment here in the Salt Belt--gotta love Krown), and, apart from the BMW, none have had any engine or transmission repairs beyond replacing valve cover gaskets (Dodge and Camry).

It means nothing because some people may have spent alot of cash to keep em going to 200-300k miles...cost of ownership would be a better way to figure it out.

Keeping it past 200K or even 150K is rather a statement that the person is more tolerable of serious repairs than the average person. And they probably don't live in the rust belt, or put a lot of miles on quickly.

Oh, if i viewed repairs and parts replacements from the "it'll cost more than the whole car/truck is worth" standpoint, I wouldn't fill the gas tank on either my Camry or my Dakota. Instead, I value repairs on the basis of how many new car payments would I have to make to pay for the repair. Since I don't see 4-figure repairs on any of them, the answer is usually 3 or less. If I can drive it for another 3 months after any given repair, it's worth doing. Normal wear stuff would have to be paid for on a newer/lower-mile vehicle anyway.

My 84 Civic wagon has 440K+ purchased new. I forgot the exact mileage. It's at home an I'm at work. It's either 440K of 460K.

It failed to get me where I'm going just one time, the ignitor in the ignition. Like Rolls-Royce, I claim it did not break down. It failed to proceed.
