What a crappy job. Can't they fly him around? No chance for a solid family life, unless the misses likes motels and eating on the road a lot.

Why sell now? I would expect any car manufacturer to give me a new one if I put 1 million miles on one of their cars.

My filter won't let me see the site, so with that I only have one comment. I hope that he got to claim the mileage. $$$$

Here ya go, Sci. Hopefully the hotlink won't kill it :whistle:



There's high mileage, and then there's this. A 1995 Honda Civic is for sale in Atlanta with, count 'em, 939,899 miles. That's 200+ miles a day. Every day. Including Sundays. For 12 years. It even has a Carfax report from when the car had 907,000 miles on it. According to the seller, the car runs like new, with no leaks, no noises, no oil burning, and not even a scratch on the body. In fact, the only blemish listed is that one of the dashboard lights doesn't work, and that's only sometimes.

The car is on its ninth timing belt, ninth water pump, and fourth clutch. But the engine and transmission are original, as are the floor mats. The car even comes with records. The most incredible thing isn't the mileage, though. It's how the owner put the miles on the car: driving on business trips from Atlanta... to Seattle... and San Francisco. We want to know what kind of business -- or what kind of boss -- makes a guy drive across the country and back, and then some, every single month for 12 straight years.

To paraphrase The Proclaimers, if you buy this car then you can drive a million miles and you can drive a million more...

He says he's changed the oil every 2,500 miles, he's had the car since 1995, that's 70k per year. If it is indeed true he changes the oil every 2,500 miles, that is literally every other weekend, hmmmm.

2500 miles? That's retarded for that kind of driving. He could change it every 10k and get 900k out of it without a hitch, but then, who would want to bother proving my idea?

One of the comments on the linked story had me chuckling pretty good: "A dashboard light is out? i guess you get what you pay for."

FYI, had the Camry inspected yesterday at 232k miles, passed perfectly. Felt weird, though. That was the first time in years and years that any mechanic but me had touched the car....
