I took a Meru Cab (which is LOGAN) for dropping me to the Airport, and I was astonished when I saw the ODO on it. It had close to 500000 KM's driven and was still doing fine.

The driver is the owner and the only driver who is using this vehicle, and he has done periodic services at prescribed intervals from Mahindra.

No major work done on the engine yet.

I was surprised at the fact and I was baffled by the pick up of the car at this ODO.

That's the highest I have seen on any car till date.

Our office cab Qualis is running 2,60,000+ now. Runs smooth, even though most of this mileage was done on the congested and jam-packed roads of Bangalore! I used to feel it's like doing 4-5 lacs on good highways.

This is one factor we have to consider while comparing mileage in India with those done in other countries with good roads. Here the roads are full of potholes and the traffic is horrible. To cover 30-40 km the car might have to run 1 hr, while in the same period of time it can cover much more kms in most other countries.

My 2004 Santro Xing XS (CNG) had done 130k KM before I sold it off in April. Got a good price on it hence decided to sell it off.

I crossed 144444 on my 2005 WagonR last week and it was 144488 today

On the contrary, just crossed 15k on 4 yr old ANHC. It is not used much.

Nothing in my list but would like to mention my Uncle's 2 Innovas here:
1st one is a 2006 model done 1.80 Lakh kms and still running fine
2nd one is a 2009 model and crossed 1.10 Lakh km mark recently.

He has no plans of selling both as they run just like they did on Day 1 of the purchase

Among my current cars my Polo is just 30,000 done while my Wagon R is a 11,2000 km done.
The Indica used by my staff was sold at 3,25,000 km while my Innova was sold with 1,60,000 km done my driver who purchased the Innova from me re registered it as a Taxi and has now brought it close to 3 lakh km.

The world record for highest mileage is with Mr Irvin Gordon who completed 30,00,000 Miles in July 2013 with his 1966 Volvo P 1800. That is 48 Lakh !! km for us guy.
What we all have mentioned is peanuts. Due to his gentle driving he also holds the world record for OE clutch plate usage, at 4,50,000 miles
That is about 3 times what I managed in my Innova.
