Here’s a story that Nancy wanted to share with us. Can a Toyota Sienna rack up the miles? You betcha!

Odometer Reading: 380,005
Year: 2000
Model: Toyota Sienna

From Nancy: I’d like you to meet “Supercar.” She was at the front of the production line and I was driving her by 1999.

She has been so very reliable, but I’ve never expected any less from a Toyota. Her transmission was rebuilt at about 285,000 miles and various parts have needed replacement.  – an ignition coil, most recently. Overall, the cost of ownership has been very low. My only complaints are interior and exterior doors handles and buttons. At this point, every door has a problem that I’ve not fixed, because I just can’t afford to. I can’t open the rear hatch or the passenger slider, for instance.

Nancy, I hope you can keep that beautiful Sienna together for another 120,000 miles. Then you’ll be hitting the big time. We’re with you all the way. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

Happy November, fellow High-milers. Today’s exclusive comes to us from Doug Wood. Here is the info on his Explorer:
Odometer Reading: 400,000
Year: 1998
Model: Ford Explorer – Eddie Bauer Edition

From Doug: I bought my Ford Explorer new in July of 1998. The car is basically all original except for the transmission. I’m on my 3rd one. The engine has never been rebuilt and the head gasket has never been replaced. Original interior and original paint. I live in Centreville, VA where we do get snow. Car is not garage kept. Still drive the vehicle
daily. Would like to submit it later this month once I reach 400,000 miles.

If you can’t tell by now, he did go over the big 400K mile marker, and I posted his story. Keep up the awesome driving, Doug. I’m hoping you’ll follow up with us when it hits the big 500K.
