Congrats Fred. That is a lot of miles.

I'm about halfway there and do not plan to take my Toyota to that limit. It has done great for the 1st 144k though.

Re: RAVE - hit 300,000 miles the other day

Wife's car, 97 C280 Sport, just turned 155,000 last weekend. I know because I changed the oil last weekend and wrote it down.

This 97 car is the only car, that as a couple, we bought new. In fact, I was between being a GM or a Ford guy forever, and my wife just had to have a brand new Benz. I was like, "are you frickin nuts? We can't afford no Mercedes Benz!"

I tried everything to sway her. There was no swaying her. That's what got me into Benzes. The only other brand car I bought after that was Grand Voyager minivan to haul crap around in, and more recently, a Ford F700 that I am turning into a tow vehicle for Plain Vanilla.

It's been a good run with Benzes. As far as I am concerned, the cheapest cars to own for the longhaul. And none of them really look dated.

They do have a rep for holding up for a lot of miles. Don't know if the initial quality has gone up from a few years back.
