The one I drive the most in the winter (2001 Ford Explorer) has almost 200,000 miles on it. The one I drive in the summer (1970 Ford Mustang Grande) has just a few hundred miles on the engine as my husband just rebuilt it.

I work at a car dealership and one of the managers of the sales people were complaining about how this one couple only bought a new car every 7 years, I was just like, really? That's a lot of money to buy new cars every seven years.

Haha, I have a 1989 Nissan Maxima with about 99,350 miles on it, I will have to change my answer in a 3 or 4 weeks.

I bought a 2008 shelby GT500 for $38K in 2009, I just recently sold it do to moving 1200 miles with 2 other cars. I sold it for $34k, a $12k profit for me. Not bad considering it was over 4 yrs old with only 14,000 miles. Wish I still had it though, but with 4 kids it was getting to much.

I feel comfortable taking Toyotas to 400k. My baby is still less than 30k.

Hard to believe 41% (out of 9000+ votes) are driving cars with greater than 100,000 miles. Wow!!! I wonder if its commuting, the economy, cars lasting longer now, etc.

My Y2K Silverado had 265k on it when I traded it a couple of years ago. Now my 2011 Nox already has 65k on it. Chevy runs strong.

My first car, 01 Chevy cavi went about 250000 miles.. And it only went out if commission from hitting a deer. Still cranked up and everything while sitting at the body shop but insurance already totaled it out.

My wife is the primary driver of the Pathfinder, and it was bought used. I'm the primary driver of the Civic and bought it new with only 7 miles on it. it's an excellent car with no problems and great mpg.

Yes, 143,000 on a 1999 Honda Civic, and 207,000 miles on a 2001 Nissan Pathfinder. The Honda is like new, and the only thing replaced beyond normal maintenance (e.g., brake pads, etc.) is the A/C condenser fan at 135K miles. The Pathy has needed more work, but it's been abused and has more miles.

2006 Honda Pilot @ 147k
2001 Mazda Tribute @ 152k
Both paid for and kept in tip top shape.
Looking at the new cars, not BMW Or the like, and seeing prices of 35k on average!! Absurd.

We just bought a mini! It's the first new car I have ever owned and the first extravagant item I have ever allowed myself. It took a long time, but it's nice to know my hard work paid off :-)

My 2002 Toyota is about to hit 170k. Had a 1996 before that with about 140k, ran like a top but unfortunately it was totaled 4 years ago. Great vehicles.

My Chrysler Pacifica has 161,922 miles and runs perfectly. She's 8 years old. I will keep her around even if she's not the primary. A little tank, goes through any weather.

Yeah. I put about 50k miles a year on the Ford for work. Plus everyday there is another ding on it from some asshole in some random parking lot. The Benz is for evenings and weekends where I know it will be safe!

Yeah my 99 F150 amazes me with 165k miles and ticking with no issue, maintenance is the key factor.

165,000 and ticking. You would never know it did if you drove it. I am truly amazed from the mid 90's on most cars if taken care of properly can go 250k or more without any major problems. But you have to do your maintenance regularly for that to be the case.

Seeing all the comments assuming that to have new vehicles is superficial and wasteful shows a closed minded view. I spend about two hours a day in my truck and accumulate at least 30,000 miles a year.I live in a remote rugged environment and I only buy things that I can pay for in cash.
