It’s been a slow news week here at HMC. Not a lot of pings out there in terms of high-mile vehicles. I’m always scanning the net in search of the next super-high mile car, but things are a little dry at the moment. I do have a couple of exclusives in the pipeline, so stay tuned for those.
To keep things interesting, I thought I’d cover the story of a woman who drove her beetle 400,000 miles. Alice Mannion bought a used 1998 VW beetle with 40,000 miles on it, and took it ten times that distance. While it’s an older story that goes back to 2010 and isn’t going to break any records, it’s still a pretty amazing accomplishment. You can find the story here. There is a lot of sarcasm in the article, but it’s nice to see VWs continue to prove their reliability.
Alice, if you see this story, let us know if you are still driving the beetle. We’d love to hear where you are with it now,
