Hall of Fame

The High Mile Club Hall of Fame

On this page you will find a list of the highest mile cars we have featured on this site, from most to fewest miles. Unlike the main blog, your car must have at least five-hundred-thousand miles to be posted here. If the record is in kilometers, I’ve converted it to miles. Green entries are new in the past month. Do you know of a car that deserves to be on this list? Let me know.

    1. Toyota 4runner 1999 @ 462,000 and going! Bought if off ebay as 2nd owner and have done regular maintenance, some suspension work due to worn out parts but nothing out of the ordinary. GREAT vehicle and looking forward to surpassing the 500k mark in the summer of 2019!

  1. I have a 2000 Toyota Camry that I drive every day for work. It has 501,376 miles currently … and counting. Original engine and transmission.

  2. hall of famer
    Jos Vaillancourt 1963 Plymouth Fury
    with a slant 6 who used it for living as a taxi
    had a very dammageable accident.The Fury has been totally restored and resting in a museum in province of Québec with more than 1.6 million miles…Canadian record

  3. Dear Jasohill, when was the last time the mileage (3,173,895 miles) of Mr. Irv Gordon updated ? What is his current reading ?

    1. That is a great question. The last time I updated his mileage, I think it was around May or June. I’m pretty sure it’s much higher now. I’ll have to do a quick search and check.

      1. Any update on Irv Gordon’s current mileage reading ? After all, his Volve P1800 is a flagship highmiler.

  4. Got a 2005 f150 with 482,000 plus miles and going. Change the oil between 10 and 15000 miles and only change the transmission one time, one alternator, ac, radiator. Work the snot out of it and pull heavest stuff i can with it. Obd is his name. Best work truck i ever owned. Looking foward to making the list.

  5. I have a 2002 Honda CR-V with 239,245 miles. Hoping for at least .5K before deciding if I want to look for a newer vehicle – gas milage is dropping.

  6. I’m getting close with my 1997 Saturn SL1 (yes, a Saturn). Just clicked over 451K and she’s still going as strong as you would expect a Saturn to get. Typically 40 mpg (5 speed), original engine, burns a little oil, but that gives me room for Slick 50 every 10K or so. Hope to be reporting out 500K soon.

  7. My Camry is now at 325k miles. To my knowledge, orig eng and tran. Bought used after it was totaled by insurance for rear end damage. It has been totaled by insurance at least twice since, but good mechanical maintenance has paid off. I just dropped by to see what I might be able to expect! I’ll get back in touch after another couple hundred thousand miles!

  8. 2002 honda accord lx special edition 2.3L vtec auto trans. all numbers matching car . no issues at all . just do regular maintenance and such . Still pulls 130mph++ . love this car . her name is Jane . 314,398 miles and is in perfect running order .

  9. Interesting list.. although I noticed that all the vehicles with 500,000 are at least 10 years old, some older.. My civic has 300,000 and is a 2015..

  10. Love the site and the list! Is there anyway to add info like the exact model specs, engine size, etc. I would love to use this list to buy my next car!

  11. I have a 2006 Honda Civic EX, purchased in December 2005 with 313,000 miles & it’s still running great! I’ve replaced the starter twice & most of everything only once from normal wear & tear. Engine block was replaced twice due to recall. I look forward to how far my baby will take me. I love my car!

  12. Toyotas are awesome. My 2006 Toyota Tundra V6 has an amazing 793,477 miles with the original engine still humming. Regular maintenance is the key. Looking forward to hitting 1,000,000 and then some. A/C still freezing.

  13. My 2007 Hyundai Vericruz is at 248,230 I purchased my baby new, and have driven every mile on it. I have had no major issues, and normal maintenance is all she ever needs. Regular oil changes, brakes, tires, and recall service. I couldn’t be happier, and look forward to the next 250k

  14. I intend to buy Honda Civic 2008 in Jan 2019 with about 80k in the odometer.
    Mr. Paul Habib Jr. is an inspiration to me and everyone else to save money and keep the car till retirement and beyond.

    Latest model cars are overpriced and a piece of junk imo, compared to the rugged cars of the past.

  15. I work at Germain Honda of Ann Arbor, MI. I want to get into contact with everyone in the community! My goals is to have as many of my customers as possible join the high mileage club!

    We just launched what we call “The Germain Advantage”

    It’s a FREE Lifetime Powertrain Warranty on every single 2018/19 Honda!

    With your community being what it is I’d love to have the chance to see dozens and dozens more added to the Hall of Fame!

  16. I have a 1992 Civic VX I bought brand new which now has 551,622 miles on it and is my daily driver. Still in great shape. I have sent my info into this site twice but I can’t get it on here!

    1. Hi Kenneth. I think either my replies to you are going in your spam box, or you messages to me are going in mine. I’m going to double check. I’d love to do a story on your Civic VX.

      Could you send me another mail with another email address? The one I reply to isn’t working. It tells me it doesn’t exist. Thanks.

      1. Hi Jason, I have the 1992 Civic VX with 552,353 miles on it as of this morning. It is in very good shape still, people offer to buy it at least 3 or 4 times a year. Thank you! Kenneth 2nd email address is kdmkhaus9@aol.com

  17. My wife and I own a 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor with 329,038 miles. No engine or transmission work. Oil changes with Mobile 1 full synthetic at 5,000 miles and Purolator filters and transmission fluid at 25,000 miles with Castrol Transmax Import. It uses a little oil now (1/4 quart every 1,000 miles) but still runs great. It is mostly used as a back up vehicle but we drove it 250 miles round trip to Atlanta before Christmas (2018).

  18. 1997 Toyota Corolla 411,000 miles
    No major work done under the hood except the alternator. She still purrs like a kitten.
