165xxx kms in the 1.5 OHC. Still gives 15+ kmpl average. The engine is silky smooth and the car is as good as new. Shows no signs of letting up! Absolutely love this car.

Maruti esteem - 111000 km and it sucks but it was in office duty for the last 4 years so i guess that is bound to happen

Zen - 224000 - same fate

800 - 374000 km and still lively.

But now i am going to maintain all my cars and will sell them instead of giving them in the office.

Thought you were ALL Fiat guy. Didn't know you had an OHC too. Great going at 165!

Done bout 80,000 km on my OHC, 1.5 EXi... everything is still beautiful... enigine is great (the engine was replaced, as some here mght know, but that was during its just run-in period, so... at about 4000-odd km...)... the gear-box is better than ever - i just loaded the engine with terolube, and the gearbox as well. If you thought the car had a silky shift, put in terolube, makes the car 20 times better than original...

Hey,
I had a 1.9lac kms 1997 opel astra at our office.I was still pretty good and reliable before we sold it last december.
Also,a friend has a 1999 Lancer glxi done around 3.40lac kms,and its still running strong.I recently drove that car around March sometime and was impressed with its driveability and the engine smoothness.
Lancer rocks!

I have 1 lac+ a couple of 1000s on my Honda City 1.3 (1998,first batch) The car has always been well maintained and still runs rock solid! Still has the same punch to it since the day i first drove it.It probably can go another 70,000 Km at the least.
