My 2003 Espace 1.9 Dci has done 80k miles and is still going!.

I think this is pretty impressive for this Espace given that it spends more time in my local garage than in my driveway!

Renault must have vacancies for gearbox engineers and electricians!

Re: Highest Mileage Car.. post your mileage

My dad had a Renault 16 from new in 1967. The first engine blew up at 50K so they changed it under warranty. The next engine did 250K miles. The car finally broke its chassis somewhere around the rear torsion bar.

Imagine - a low compression head who's pistons never rose to the height of the valves,and in any case it had a timing CHAIN! OH! and replaceable bearings. I cut my teeth on them.

He did all his own maintenance. He never changed the clutch in 300K miles.

A wet liner engine though Don't pull the head straight up or the liners unseat and the cooling system drains into the sump!

1995 Renault Safrane, died 2 months ago due to blown head gasket resulting in a warped head and so just too expensive to repair, with only 328,000km on the clock, that's just over 200,000 miles
