Hi guys,

Got to this thread very late.

My 1997 M-800 has clocked 2 lac kms so far and had done up my engine after 1.50 lac kms

My 1967 VW Beetle would probably have done more than some lacs on them.

Smile How much Kilometers on the Odo ?

Guys,

How many kilometers have you logged on you ride ?
At least some of us does use a car/bike for say 5+ year and maybe more.

What is the reading on the Odo, lets hope we will find who has the highest.

I had a M800 (1994) sold (2001) at around 77k Kms.
Now my Zen(2000) is 85k+ Kms
Yamaha RXZ (1997) 50k+ Kms
Swift VDi (2008) 700 Kms

While doing this week-end trip to Bangalore-Bijapur-Badami-Hampi, achieved a milestone of my driving experience.

My Zen's odometer reads 55,496 km and when the Safari crossed the 44,504 km just before entering Chitradurga on the onward journey, I had covered 1 Lakh km of driving in Indian roads (not including my rides in my HH Splendour).

Thought of sharing this milestone with you all.

@Mods: Not sure if this is the right forum, please re-categorise, if necessary.

Congrats - this inspires me. I have just 96737 KM to go on my U-VA before I reach that milestone! Will update this thread (or start a new one ) when I do that!!

Congratulations on the 6 (numbers)! It is this experience that will be your armour on our woefully dangerous highways.

2,12,XXX Kilometers on my Esteem (Euro-II, 2001 model). Haven't touched the engine as yet, is still peppy and is quite noisy.
The gearbox is terribly notchy now and she wheelspins in the 2nd when changing from the 1st to the 2nd gear. She's running on 175/70 Michelin XM1s and i'm very unhappy with the tires.

we still have a-

opel astra- 1,27,000 kms though its showing up signs of ageing now! performance & FE gone down but ride quality & comfort is still the best. maintainence issues are persistent. but i still love the car.

mahindra scorpio non crde-1,90,000 kms- performance still as strong as when new, no major issues (issues were related to only fuse box!), no breakdowns, tyres replaced once, FE dropped by 1 unit.

mahindra scorpio crde- 1,05,000 kms- again performance still very strong, no change in FE, tyres replaced twice (due to extremely bad roads & constant over loading), no major issues. seen two accidents though (i was not driving!)
