2006 Fiesta Diesel - 96000 kms and love the car, no problems at all. still feels rock steady at 160 and goes around corners like a brand new car. really love this one. returns around 17 - 18 km/l in the city with decent driving and with hard driving around 15 - 16 km/l

Had a 1997 Zen which had done around 115000 kms and was a nice drive too even after all that driving.

Had a 2004 Ford Ikon 1.3 petrol which had done 102000 kms, the car was mechanically perfect but the airconditioner had some problems, but that was it, no other problems, thats why i went ahead bought another Ford Ikon diesel now.

Had a 2002 ohc which had clocked more than 106000 kms and no problems with that car either, the fuel efficiency was great, performance was stellar and the mechanicals were perfect. thats why i sold it off and got myself an OHC vtec, have been driving it for around 2 years now and it has just reinforced my faith in honda.

Am truly in love with my Fords and my honda, with regular servicing and care am sure they'll last much longer than i would expect them too...

Man with 2.6 million-mile Volvo P1800 aims for 3 million Autoblog
Irv Gordon has driven his 1966 Volvo P1800 for over 2.75 million miles, and he hopes to hit 3 million soon.

Gordon's car has already traveled the equivalent of 100 times around the Earth, twice the diameter of the Sun, nearly five complete round trips to the moon, or 1,111 completions of the Tour de France. Over ten years and 1 million miles ago, Gordon already won the Guinness World Record for mileage, but he's still driving.

Gordon bought his Volvo new in 1966 and has been driving it ever since. He's been maintaining a daily commute of 125 miles to average about 80,000 miles every year. In 2002 alone he drove 100,000 miles. He plans on reaching the 3 million mark in a couple more years.

Brother, that's sad. I can almost hear your zen crying.
If your annual running is less than 10,000 KM, using a taxi might turn out to be cheaper financially. Of course, I do understand that not everybody buys a car just to commute.
