Closest I've seen personally, a lady brought in a 99 GC when I worked for Chrysler.
She had some basic maintenance done. It was around 2004, she had 330K miles.

I6 leaked from everywhere but she just kept adding oil.
Original bearings and seals on the front and the rear differentials. Maintenance FTW

What is this chick delivering in that thing that really makes it worth driving that much...seems incredibly inefficient whatever it is.

200k miles is:
- An oil change every 18 days (assuming she goes 10k between changes)
- 85.5 hours/week in the car at an average speed of 45mph
- 64 hours/week in the car at an average speed of 60mph...which I doubt she's hitting. And that's assuming she drives the same miles every week...no vacations no holidays

When I worked at an oil change place in college a Lincoln Town Car used to come in that had almost 700k miles on the clock and was probably somewhere around 5 years old at the time.

Yea, saw many extreme high mileage full-size Chevy pickups come in regularly when I was in service at a GM dealer. Maybe that mileage wasn't accumulated over 5 years, but still...

Just two in a quick google search...

It's a Hyundai , gauge cluster malfunction . She hit 100K miles not 1M . My mother inlaw had a Huyndai Elantra 2 years ago . Had around 70K when everything was falling apart , suspension making crazy noises , oil leaks every where and rusted like crap

Right. Every elantra I see is clapped out trash before it hits 100k. I'd like to see the repair history
