    You hear of cars being able to do 150k-200k+ miles. But what is the most amount of miles that you have ever known for a car to have done?
    It could be a car that belongs/belonged to you or someone else.

    I know an old ford mondeo that my mum and dad had- my dad went on that official MOT check website (he was looking up his old cars to see if they are still around etc) and found that at its last MOT it had done 190,000 miles.

    341,000 Daihatsu Feroza. I did close to 1k on that thing.

    It had a disconnected exhaust like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKbNUenifek

    It had lots of mods to keep it going.
    All gears worked, but it would crunch on 3rd.

    It was a rental car I rented for a month, learned to drive in it (left hand drive but it was easy to switch to right hand driving). Did a lot of off-road driving too fast so I broke the rear view mirror, the dashboard fell off, the mudflaps fell off and it overheated on some hot days. The most fun i've ever had in a car, old cars are just great fun- but rental cars make it much better.

    My Passat has 170k on it at the moment, but you wouldn't know it.

    I've owned a few cars in the 150-200k mile bracket and this is the nicest by far.
