    I'm borrowing this from another site, but the captain kind of brought it up, in his letter. I'll start - I've got 480,000km [300,000 miles] on my Cordoba. And it still runs beautifully.

    I believe the Caravelle is at 350,000-ish.....still ripping.
    The Fifth is 240,000 daily driven and runs like a champ and I think the Volare is a baby at around 160,000.....all kilometers.

    Base Mirada is at 224,000, Cordoba Crown 160,000, Mirada CMX 107.000, all in KM, all rounded off to the nearest 1000 KM.

    And the worse thing that's ever happened on my daily Fifth (which I take up north every weekend from March to October....roughly 500 kilometres) is......my doors freeze.
    I leave the back passenger unlocked and all is well.

    And my original fuel pump gave up.
    That's it.

    spray some oil where the door contacts the car and it should come open without freezing

    My Durango-316,000km, my wife's Pacifica 211,000km, my Mirada shows 66,000km so that is at least 166,000 maybe 266,000 I am not really sure, in 1995 when I bought it, it was showing 2,200km after a 4000km trip across Canada.
    My first Dakota finished up with 540,000km on it when it was done.

    I have a old 1987 Dodge Caravan I use for work that is beat all to hell and doesn't look pretty but has 350,000 miles on it and the only problem I have ever had with the van is it had a little pin hole in the radiator. As for the motor and trans still holding strong and does not smoke. I think I gave $700.00 for the van years ago cant remember for sure but got my moneys worth out of it.

    Either crackedback or rumblefish on FABO (I mix both of those two Rob's up) had a late 70's B-body ?Cordoba that had more than half a million miles on a low compression 360, 727 car. It was passed around between between family members. I think that other than basic tune-ups, bushings, tires, wheel bearings, grease-ing, front suspension rebuilds, and RUST PREVENTION they would last as long as any car made if driven carefully.

    My 76 Volare has 73 k on the clock, I put a freezplug in the speedometer drive in the trans so it will never show more.
    During mockup I discovered the drive cable was to short so it was eliminated.
    EDIT: The rest of my junk.

    My 64 Fairlane has 60k original miles on the body.
    The daily driver is a 08 Expedition with 108k on the clock.

    I'm at 92 or 93,000 on my 81 Cordoba.
    199k on 99 Ram qc, needs intake gaskets, heads as long as I'm there,
    290k on 02 Maxivan 3500 5.9 runs shifts flawless.
    149k on current 05 G Caravan winter beater.
    Had a 95 G Caravan with 350k when I sold it. It was as clean, straight, right and tight as new. It was a private owned well maintained Amish taxi and family truckster.

    Bought my Aspen (in '87) with 72,000. I'd GUESS it's roughly 90,000 now but it's been totally (and I mean TOTALLY) redone so it's really more like 2,000.
    The winter daily driver ('96 Dakota) has 161,000
    The summer daily driver ('08 Mustang) has 74,000

    Currently 190,518 on my '85 Plymouth Gran Fury, having some drivability issues due to the seriously worn carburetor that I can't afford to have rebuilt. Very few issues overwise; a little rust in the rear wheel wells, exhaust system is pretty much shot, and some front end issues (4 years of daily driving in Connecticut will do that to any car...) and few other very minor things

    I think I'm looking at around 104,000 miles on the doba. The 318 is due for a refresh or a possible other motor. Haven't decided yet

    I'm just getting mine warmed up... The Cordoba has just under 15,000 Miles on the odometer.

    550,000 km on my daily driver 89 5th Ave. It's getting tired, but still gets it done every day, and I'm not burning oil! Leaking some though...I keep up with the maintenance and even the A/C still blows cold.

    The odometer has flipped over so many times that the scraper has made it so that you can barely read the first digit.

    Best car I've ever had...
