To start of the week’s news, I wanted to pose a question to the HMC audience.   Aaron L. posed a great question in the comments earlier today. His vehicle has around 185,000 miles and rust is starting to creep onto his car. He was wondering how all of the high-milers out there mitigating the oncoming rust-storm? Do you have any strategies or tips? How to do you handle the eventual repairs? Do you take your car to an expert?  Use the comments down below to discuss rust. I eventually plan to create a list of high-mile techniques that we can use to keep our cars running to a million and beyond.  I plant o put it next to the hall of fame.

I don’t like to talk about myself here. I’d rather the stories of the car owners and their wonderful vehicles shine through. However,  I did want mention that I recently crossed a small milestone on my new car and thought it would be a great way to get people talking about their own cars. So I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.  For those not in the world of the metric, 16093.44 km is equivalent to 10, 000 miles. A fairly significant milestone, I’d say.

So, we’ve brought you quite a selection of high-mile vehicles since we first started this blog. Now I’d like to turn things over to you. In the comments, share your current odometer reading, your car, and your high-mile dreams. Also, is there anything specific you’d like to see here? Let me know.

I’ll start things off. I drive a 2013 Mazda Demio with skyactiv engine. My goal is to get that thing to at least 300, 000 kms. If I can do that, we’ll see about 500k.  I’m currently at 14,300km. It’s going to be a while.
