Re: Highest Mileage Car.. post your mileage

I used to have a 406 2.1 Peugeot with 225,000 and it was still running well, but I sold it before it started costing money. My daughters 1.5 dci 80 Clio has done 137,000, my wife's rover 75 diesel had done 160,000 before the speedo packed up two years ago and my Alfa 156 2.4 JTD has just done 145,000.
I change the oil and filters every six months and always use semi synthetic oil .

And I'm sure you'll enjoy lots more miles together. Mine's done 238,000 on a W reg 1.9 dti. I think I've had the steering rack changed once and 1 spring but i dread to think what I've spent in servicing

Re: Highest Mileage Car.. post your mileage

My laguna 1.9 has covered 150000 trouble free miles until 150036 when the turbo blew and engine 'run away' i caught it fairly quick and stalled it. It still starts and idles quietly so i'm assuming that a new turbo , clean the intercooler and egr valve, fresh oil and filter, check the oil lines and i should be away again.
P.S my porsche 944 s2 cabriolet has done 200000, purrs like a kitten and pulls like a train.

Repair the head gasket on that P reg scenic. A child could throw a head hasket on these 8 valve units.

210,000 is awesome though
