Hi everyone. I read the article in your site about this old Accord that reached the one million miles which is epic. That just shows the good quality Japanese and how durable are the Honda cars. So, what other vehicle model do you think could achieve this feat?

Hi PLUR, check it out this article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1385445/Mustang-tally-The-45-year-old-car-thats-clocked-MILLION-miles.html

There is another old guy (Mr Lucas) from Santa Ana, California who reached more than 1 million miles on his car, a Ford GT Mustang 289 from 1065, cool eh? smiley cool

The difference with Joe, the guy from Maine, is that Joe never changed the engine to its Honda Accord. Mr Lucas says he has changed the engine of his Mustang, which does not have much merit as the Joe's story.

I red the Joe's story. He was so lucky, I guess he never thought that his feat was going to give him a free new Honda Accord, but well, he is a mechanic and that's is good advantage.

I think any Honda vehicle is able to achieve the million miles, just as he says, with good maintenance and taking care of the car.

I have a friend who has a Toyota Corolla year 198? something, he lives in Seattle, WA and he drives his car everyday around the city. Its car has about 400,000 miles and he says he only has spent money changing the oil and the regular expenses of a car and he says his car never fails and probably he is getting the 500,000 miles next year. In conclusion, Honda and Toyota are the most reliable vehicles in the market I think.

There's another car that reached the million miles. The new Chevrolet Malibu 2013 exceeded the million miles in testing for 22 months on six continents. Check the video:
What UP!

There is a Mercedes Benz 200d which reached more than 2.8 million miles and it belongs to Gregorios Sachinidis, un taxi driver from Thessalonica. This is his story, it is in Spanish but you can use Google Translate. This Mercedes W115 200D was a model registered in 1976. This four-door saloon and 1,365 kg engine had a 1955 cc four-cylinder engine capable of developing 55 hp at 4,200 rpm and maximum torque of 113 Nm at 2,400 rpm. Without any electronics around and a solid mechanical injection pump. When Sachinidis bought the car in Germany it was 1981, and it already had 136,000 miles. He drove it back to Greece, where it was used as a taxi 24 hours continuously.
