    My '00 maxima is just shy of 100k, I am sure that is low for this crowd. Never had anything wrong with it other than normal wear and tear stuff, ohh and a new muffler.

    Re: Most miles contest

    I used to have a high miler, but I sold it..... best deal I ever made on a vehicle. Bought a used 1988 S-10 2WD, plain jane nothing truck in 1994 with ~115,000 miles on it for $1500. I drove it back and forth to work for years and all I ever did was oil, tires and brakes and sold it around 2000 for $1200 with 225,000+ miles on the ticker. I was amazed at how well that poor little 4 cylinder still ran and it was on the original clutch.

    That's all I have..... I have owned more than 30 vehicles over the years, but usually they get sold way before they rack up high miles.

    I'm in the market for a new (used) vehicle that will hopefully have between 30K and 75K miles.

    Re: Most miles contest

    1999 Chevy Venture
    106,000 miles

    Replaced a...
    1998 Dodge Grand Caravan
    110,000 miles

    The great thing is, I was planning on keeping the Dodge for a few more years even though the air-conditioning didn't work, the breaks needed replacing, there was body damage, it was due for an oil change, and I needed to replace the spare tire, but some idiot pulled right in front of me at an intersection, it was totally his fault and the settlement allowed me to buy a better car, without the problems that mine had, for only $500 more. Not the best way to replace a worn down car, but not the worst.

    Re: Most miles contest

    Before I just got my new (used) truck I had a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 177,000. Bought it cash when I totaled my Mustang. I didn't want to have a car payment untill I had my student loans paid off...
