Question The MOST miles you've seen on a Camry

Camrys are known to last for a good time. What is the highest number of miles you've seen - or heard about - on a camry?

The most i've seen is 237,000 miles on my friends car, he's still using it......

When I was working for a Toyota Dealership in the mid 90's we had a regualr customer witha Gen 1 taht had over 330k miles on it. IT looked brand new. HE took extremely goodcare of the car and always had normal maintenance done at or before schedule. That is one of the only high mileage cars that we would work on a regualr basis because he was a regualr customer.

We had some one trade one it at the dealership I was selling at recenlty and it had 273k miles on it or so.

That Question Also Confuses Me. What The Hell Would A Dealership Want With A 273k Mile Camry? Neways My Grandma Sold Her Carrola 10 Years Back And It Had 250k Miles On It And We Recently Saw It Running On The Road Still. We Were Surprised.

I don't remember who it was but somebody posted a pick of their Gen 2 or 3 starting all over again. So if that counts then 999,999.9

^ I doubt it!...unless the motor was rebuilt multiple times!!! Imagine the amount of driving u'd have to do to clock up a million miles in only 16 years!!

well let's calculate it. if a toyota had 1,000,000 miles on it: w/ it being 16 yrs old

every year: put 62,500 every year
roughly every month: put 5300 miles
every day: 171 miles

PERSONALLY, I WOULD DIE DRIVING THAT MUCH!

To quote the Guinness Book of World Records 2005 edition:

"Highest Car Mileage--A 1966 Volvo P-1800S owned by Irvin Gordon (USA) has covered IN EXCESS of 2,219,751 miles (3,572,342 KM) by March 2004. The car is still be driven on a daily basis and covers more than 100,000 miles (160,000 KM) per year, thanks in part to being driven to numerous events in Europe and USA."

That would be overkill for me.

Maybe it was a taxi-like service.

I have seen 5 year old taxis clock up over 500,000 km. (thats 316,000 miles)
