my 1998 m800 has done around 108000 kms and still it hasnt given any problem, still starts at first crank and is smooth to drive, good pick up and the only negative is that it gives me a mileage of 12.5 kmpl only

my accent gls has clocked 80000 kms and still is smooth, in fact i find its suspension still better, and michelins help to get a smooth drive. the only problems which i think all 1.3 accents have is the pick up while in lower gears. but nevertheless i love both my cars.

Our machinery manufacturer at germany has a Passat diesel on which they have clocked 700,000kms in 8 years!! Its used by their fitters to travel all over europe to service their machines!! and I've seen lots of Merc taxis[124's] in Germany with 500,000kms in 6/7 years and without engine overhauls.
so I guess doing average 400kms a day[5 day week] is possible in Europe.

When we sold out M800 last yr, it had done a cool 135,000 kms. It was a 1989 model and I remember my father had got the engine overhauled when it clocked 85,000. The car was good and definitely very driveable. Only thing was, it didnt have an AC and Delhi sucks when you dont have an AC in your car.
The Zen that we do not drive too often these days has clocked 69,000 kms in the 5.5 yrs its been with us. Its a 2001 LXi and other than a few rattles that we have in it (thanks to our great roads and the mighty NH8). The car overall is pretty decent, except that its just SMALL, so to say.
