most milage ever recorded on mr2 10 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 13
Hi guys my mr2 has 190.000 miles on the clock. Just wondering if anyone on here has same kind of milage or more. I change the oil every 4000 miles and Toyota oil filter.My engine is perfect no noises on cold start, and not smokey.

My Rev5 has 100,000 on her, not a bother so far...Looked after I can't see it having any problem going up to 350,000 + miles...skys the limit..

From memory some of the guys in the USA have 100's of thousands of miles on them. We're in safe hands I think

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

Yeah I remember seeing similar threads to this on american forums and the guys had more than 250+ on their cars.
As long as you take care of your car and service it regularly there is no reason why you car won't reach the same

Yeah my first ever car was a Carina E, ex taxi. It had 135K miles on it when I got it and 165K miles by the time I sold it on 3 years later.

Then I started doing the typical 17 year old lad thing, ie, pimping it out and driving the shite out of it. Never needed a thing done with the engine other than a basic service. That thing ran like a clock and seemed to be completely invincible. Toyota sure know how to build tough engines! I have never had any engine trouble with a Toyota.

A buddy of my cousin, names Ivan, who works as a bouncer has an old grey 1.9 corolla diesel he drives to and from Ukraine where he's from, few times a year ! Tony told me, last he heard he has 670K miles on it. To be honest it does sound like it's on it's last legs he said - but still... Astronomical milage !!!
