This is freaking awesome!


A 2013 Hyundai Elantra has made it to 1 million miles on it's original powertrain!


I know there's sone members here who love their Hyundais, so what do you guys think?

I'm surprised because iirc the engine in that model year Elantra was recalled so I'm wondering if tbis is before or after it was replaced.

My 2009 Genesis sedan just clicked over 202k miles and the only thing I've ever done to it in over 7 years is oil/tire changes and I had to replace a faulty O2 sensor. Still on the original brake pads!!!

Yeah those older Gennys are like the Legends IMO! Super solid!


A few hours ago, I actually saw a lightly modded gen coupe with "Genny" on the plate!


These may be "Classics" one day...


I say this because I'm yet to see a Genesis (sedan) beaten up in a bad neighborhood even though they've been out for 10 years now!!!

I think that's why the resale on my Optima isn't that great... Too many of them became "hood" cars...


Look at the Impala

If you're gonna deal drugs and run from the cops, why drive an Impala, to die in pursuit?

Haha, Impala, Malibu, Crown Vic!!! I still love the Optima though (especially the 2013 SXL's)! Still a great looking car today!

Lets say she drove 365 days a year. At 200,000 miles per year as stated, that is 548 miles per day. I say BS! I doubt she averaged 54.8 mph in a ten hour day making stops for deliveries.

Sure it had the same powertrain. That does not mean that it was never opened up for something like a head job.

No telling. I do know it was used by a group of people as a courier or delivery car.


Either way, I feel that these cars can last. The only thing that I'm not worried about on my Kia Optima is reliability. At 173,587 and running like new!

Watched the video again. Looks like it is her personal car. If she drives 24/7 as she stated, why do I see her pulling out and into a garage. lol

People like to stretch the truth and exaggerate. High miles are nothing without a detailed spreadsheet showing all expenditures. I have a detailed one for every car and motorcycle of mine.

High mileage is no big deal if you maintain the car and don't abuse it. My old 1999 Honda CR-V is in the hands of a friend now with over 180,000 miles and he'll hit 240,000. Not bad considering cold winter starts and all.

We're just about to hit 240K miles on our 2007 RDX, got it in 2/2016 at 175K miles! Has had some issues, suspension, electrical, starter, A/C clutch/condenser coil, waterpump, engine mount and recently two massive oil leaks. Got that taken care of and runs like a champ. A few more things to address, but nothing major. Mainly electrical (actuator and backup camera) and steering pump.

I drive pretty hard but none of our vehicles have ever shown signs of mechanical wear, like engine/tranny or anything.

My friends was a courier and easily did 100K a year but I find it very hard to believe a single person could do 250K.

100K a year is about a tank of gas a day, in the average Acura...

This was a while ago but he drove a 1992 Civic VX he bought new. Five speed manual and it legit got 70mpg highway manually calculated. He put 493K miles on it and then accidentally hit a brick wall and broke the engine block.

Dayum, some high mileage cars on here. I'm about to join the club here soon too. The Golf will hit 10k in about 2 months from now and the S2000 will likely hit 50k this year!

No, probably 20mph. Shook the restaurant 🤣

We couldn’t believe it either. But he had a coolant leak in the block afterward.
