Excited to see my 2001 1.2 Palio at 99999 while driving and waited the 100000 kms mark but it stopped right there. This was about 1.5 years back. It has done around 15000 kms. Still like a locomotive

After going through this thread I noticed that most of you have clocked more than 1lakh km with your (previous) respective rides. My Zen is my current and first car. She has clocked 51,035 km so far. I am already contemplating of replacing her with something more modern and with a trunk! Hats off to the Zen owners who have reported high odo readings. She sure is a gem!

2004 Optra 1.8 litre petrol - 104,000 kms on the clock.

No loss of power or mileage, but engine is noisier than before past 3500 rpm.

Wait I've lost track now. So who's the BHPian that's got the most miles on his car/bike so far? Incredible stuff guys. Our '96 Omni is near the 1 lakh kilometer mark but that's peanuts here, eh?

Three of us, between my dad, elder brother and me. I would have put in about 35% of these, my dad another 30%, my brother about 25% and chauffeured for another 10% max. This is in about 20 years time, since 1991 till date. We did have a few other cars which I have not logged here because they didn't do the 1,00,000 mark.

HM Contessa (P) - 65000 kms
Maruti 1000 - 87000 kms
Maruti Omni - 20000 kms
HM Ambassador - 75000 kms

Not as taxis. But because we lived in Bangalore and travelled to Tirupur almost on a weekly basis whether my father worked. Nice to know that you are a fishie too. Do buzz me when you are in Coimbatore.
