Van has recently clocked upto 197k, I was hoping (sort of) to get the van to 200k before Christmas, but I doubt it it'll get there now. The mighty Cav has rolled onto 77,500 just this morning.

The Vauxhall Cavalier - one of the safest cars you'll bump into

had my lag 2 priv for about 3 years and it has now clocked 153000 (80000) of which was done by me as a private hire driver. During that time ive had the following :- suspension bushes 3x / 2x coil springs / xenon headlight starter unit / 2x rear break discs & bearings / front break discs / 2x drop links / 2 shocks / diode 101 on climate control soldered - thanks forum for that one / new gps antenna / 16 tyres / 10000 side light bulbs & a battery and that is why i wont be getting another renault. having said that only once has it failed to start first time - new battery solved that - and given its job...and the amount of speed bump suspension killers i go over per night i cant really complain.

on the + side... 153000 and still using the original turbo ( egr valve never been cleaned) and more amazingly...still on the original clutch - although clutch master cylinder is gonna need replacing soon as i have the occasional sticking peddle

We had a 1994 Espace 2.1 diesel which had 229,000 miles on it when I sold it! Ran perfectly and didn't use oil or water. I saw it up for sale in Maidstone a few years later so it was still going strong then! I bet it was still on that engine too!
