Re: Highest Mileage Car ---189334---

My 1994 (L reg) 1.8 rt Laguna has just passed its MOT at

189334 miles!

Really great car - comfy, smooth, quiet. Think it does about 37 ish mpg.

Have had it since October 2005 (back then it had just had a new cam belt and recon gearbox). Purrs like a cat and burns minimal to no oil . Best everyday driver I have had. I try to keep it clean and nice and change the oil and filter every 6000 ish and now has a k&n Air filter.

Worst thing that happened to it was that it kept jumping out of 5th gear when I was driving up the motorway 4 years ago. The fork in the gearbox was burnt and buggered to hell. But I was told that the gearbox fluid was too low (had recently had the driveshaft changed and I think the fluid had leaked out then so I am largely to blame for not checking)

Have to clean up the starter connection occasionally, but A LOVELY RELIABLE CAR (Dont listen to Top Gear)

Beautiful car - no intention to change it
