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.

      Thanks for the invite Darryl.

    • Paul Orsett says:

      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!

  7. Yagnesh Bhatia says:

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

    • jasohill says:

      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.

      • Yagnesh Bhatia says:

        Appreciate your quick response. I will be looking forward for the update.

      • Yagnesh Bhatia says:

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

  8. kevin price says:

    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.

  9. jasoncote says:

    Road and track recently did a feature of a business owner who drives frequently and still daily drives his Porsche Turbo 930, with over 725k miles!

  10. Lesli says:

    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.

    Lesli in Racine, WI

  11. Guntis Goncarovs says:

    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.
