"Autoshite High Mileage Club" - Memberships Available!

Recommended Posts

Unless I've missed a thread, we're devoid of a place for obligatory speedometer photos featuring nice round, high numbers.


Seeing as my trusty Avensis ticked over 200,000 miles today - let's see some current and past 'High Milers'.


We could get a limited run of badges/stickers done too if there's any interest? Bronze for 200k, Silver for 300k and Gold for the big Five Oh Oh.


Here's my plucky 1999 Avensis SR in Tuscany Plum(!)

Looked at a Mondeo mk3 other day, had 210k on the clock. Unusually for a 1.8 the rings weren't shot. Was immaculate as well, exceptionally tidy body, full history, never failed the test on anything serious, year to year all the advisories had been taken care of, even had the original hubcaps on, never been kerbed. It had obviously been cared for but had been depended on, these are the best buys, forget these 40,000 mile jobs owned by old Bert who only used it to go to Iceland in.


Give me a car that's done 150,000 but looked after anytime over these overpriced 50,000 mile jobs any day.

This is the 2nd 200k+ car I've had, first being a Mk3 Mondeo V6 which had done around 227k when it was sadly written off. The Mondeo was a 1 owner car that I picked up for £200 from a guy who had maintained it regardless of cost, he just wanted rid because his new car had arrived and nobody was interested in a high mile V6


That car felt and drove like it had another 250k in it easily, never a hint of trouble. The Granada on the other hand does have a feeling about it that every mile may be its last, which I'm sure is mostly paranoia on my side after previous FTPs


Win some, lose some
