Yup, I've reached that magical high-mileage of 350,000 miles (563,150 km)
Sadly the odometer crapped out at 341,257 miles on August 5, 2014, but based
on fuel usage (440 gallons) since then (at 20 mpg average), I'm now at
So as far as I know, my 1990 Audi 100 (fwd, 3-speed slushbox) is the highest
mileage of that particular year and model (although last year, a [either]
1989 or 1991 Audi 100 Avant Quattro was sold in Colorado that had 408,000
miles on it)...
Never-the-less, I must now be in the .0000000001% club. Of the many
millions of cars sold, how many make it past 300'000 miles, much less
And to think it's still the original engine (cylinder head has never been
off!). Still doesn't burn much oil (maybe 1 quart for every 4,000 to 5,000
miles?). 2 tranny rebuilds, 2 radiators, a bunch of power steering units,
a/c compressor and the usual wear-out bits...
And yes, most everything works fine (even the AC, which is still on R12).
What doesn't work: cruise control, some minor lighting gremlins in the dash
