Many moons ago my Dad had one of the original shape Protons, top of the range SE with leccy everything and aircon - not bad on a 1992 car.

Anyway it was passed on, a little battered, with 130'000 on the clock - but the thing is, it had original everything - only things to be replaced were consumables like brakes, exhaust, tyres etc. Nothing EVER went wrong with it.

Might have looked like a tank and driven a bit like one, but god it was well made. Would like to see a Eurobox do anything like that!

202,000 miles on the van now and the gearbox is not liking cold mornings. CRUNCH!

Cav is (I think) circa 77,800 miles, and waiting patiently for me to pick my fat bum up off the chair and FIX IT! But still on the frostiest coldest mornings it starts first time every time. I have never had a car before that did that.

Pah 5000 miles is nowt

I think the Cav will have done around 5000 with me by the time I've had it a year (April) assuming I fix it though. The thing is, I never go anywhere! I don't drive to work, just Tescos and back every week and town and back

Well. we're at 164,000 on 1998 1.6 Megane on the original clutch. Had all the normal faults (and some of those are weird - like the wiper earth link fault) but the bits that matter just seem to keep on going.
