What’s the highest mileage vehicle you have owned? I was looking at a truck the other day and it had 250k miles on it but looked in good shape on the outside. Not much of a mechanic so not sure engine wise.

My old stump grinding truck(ford 150 86 model) had 220+ thousand miles on it but had a rebuilt motor put in it before I got it. The guy that bought it still drives it daily. My buddy just bought a toyota with 229,000 on it and it looks like new inside and out.

The vehicle has to be in running condition for you to be able to trade it for 4500, so don't strip out part of the drive train.

My own truck, 115,000 or so I think when I traded it in. My first truck when I was 16 was a hand-me-down from my step-dad, an '82 chevy 1/2 ton with the gutless 305. That truck had rolled the odometer over a couple times with 250K on it. But the engine was replaced once.

I prefer to not drive a vehicle with over 100K on it. I don't know why, but I just get worried about the reliability of it if I want to take a long road trip. I know there's little justification to my worrys though, and a vehicle can have issues as much with 50K as it would with 150K.

1996 F250 powerstroke, 228k, getting a new front end this week, then headed for 300k+. As soon as I get a front end and tires on this truck my crew cab will be parked, I will take the truck anywhere anytime. My uncle has a 97 F250 powerstroke with 275, his company truck from his work is a 00 f150 with the 5.4 and over 300k originial motor and tranny.

My 1996 dodge Ram 2500 Cummins, with 351,500 as of tonight. all original.

I also drive a 2000 Accord 5-speed with 193,700 as of today. Also all original, have a standing offer on this car. Will be sold by the end of the year.

I actually prefer to buy a car or truck with around 100k and drive it until about 200k or so. Much cheaper in the depreciation arena, I've never borrowed for a car or truck, and as long as the first owner has kept up with maintance, and you purchase a reliable veichle, you should have little to worry about. Have a mechanic look it over first, and get a good one.

Bought a 1983 Mercedes 300D with 140,000 on it. Put another 100,000 on it in the 8 years I have been driving it around. Now it is a garage princess awaiting a restoration. The previous owners and 26 years of time on the road have not been very kind to it. But it still runs.

5 years ago my old man gave me a pick up with 260K on it. It was a 97 half ton F150 with a V6 in it (standard tranny). When I traded it in it had 290K on it. All I run is diesels now, but they've all been low mileage (still are). I did have a 7.3 about 3 years ago that had 190K on it when I sold it.

Simple, you replaced the odometer, the speedometer, or both. :rolleyes:

I did the same on a Saab years ago when the speedo/odo stopped working. So a 200k mile car had "only" 64k miles on it. I actually had a person leave a note on that car asking if they could buy it. I guess I should have sold it to them. :dizzy:
