highest mileage car owned on this forum?

Recommended Posts

My gti is now on 157k, but not my daily anymore, so won't go up like it used to! My Up! had 7.7k in February when I bought it, now on 13.8k!

My old mk4 fiesta got to 110k and still ran perfect and on the same gearbox from new but the bodywork well & truly had it ha! I'd like to get my rosa over 100k, at about 59k so far so still ages to go.

The most i've ever seen was when I was in the garage, a taxi driver had a mondeo in that was nearing 300k.

A bit off topic but my 205 XLD which I have owned from new has clocked over 500000 miles. I have just purchased a 2003 Lupo SDI.

My mum's 2004 bug is an 201k and only just had a clutch. Never had an issue with it and it's been well and truly abused.

If I ever get a diesel, a PD engine will the way to got, they're bomb proof.

I'd say tdi's are reliable for the most part bar wear and tear which I include as clutch and turbo. Sdi's are the cheapest bomb proofiest diesels out there. Yes they are tractorish and slow but they go forever!
