I don’t think we’ve featured a Mercedes Benz on here before. Well, there is a first time for everything. This story comes from my home country of Canada. Robert Miles from Ontario bought a 300D (W124) in 1989, and drove it to 1,110,000 kilometers. That’s a great milestone. Converted to miles it’s  689, 722 miles. That would be put him quite high up on our list. He hasn’t had any major work done on the vehicle, and the drive train is original. He thanks his technician Peter Hagen Jr. for all of the meticulous service work that has been done.  The car was basically his office the entire time. Well done Robert.  I wonder if he’s still driving it today.

    What methods of rust prevention did this gentlemen use? I’m starting to see rust on my Cr-V at 185,000, I need some advice from the high mileage experts!

      That is a good question. It might be something we can ask about, and see what we get back. Rust is probably the #1 issue with keep a car a long time.
