Cool... its good to hear people are getting high mileage from new and older cars..

Im looking to change my car soon but cant afford a new one.. so im thinking of getting a decent spec model thats done just under 100k.. at an affordable price..

I drove a Cadillac Sedan deVille in San Francisco last year courtesy of Avis. Its Northstar V8 had only done 2000 miles, but it only required a major service every 100,000 miles. I was led to believe that, if looked after, 400,000 miles would be easily attainable.

Our 1.9dci 120bhp Laguna 2004 was 2 yrs old yesterday and has done 27,300 miles.

Our Peugeot 206cc is 3 yrs 3 months old and has just turned 15,000 on the clock, it only had 7000 miles on the clock when we bought it 12mths ago!


Most miles I have driven in one car is 66,00 miles on a1987 1.6escort ghia, it had 32,000 miles on the clock when I bought it and 98k when I sold it. Only ever had to replace tyres,exhaust and brakes - most reliable car I have ever owned. It also had lots of toys for its age - central locking,electric heated mirrors, elctric windows,tilt/slide sunroof and radio/tape with separate power amp & uprated speakers ( std Ford fit) also proper deep pile carpet ( not like the cr@p you get today).
