Is that possible?????????????????????????????????????????

150K was reached in August '07. He achieved 300K in February '09. About 1 1/2 years in between. An average of 2307 miles a week or 330 miles a day (based on 7 days a week).

And the $$$ I saved on gas on a monthly basis by using this Yaris, I actually saved $$$ by buying this Yaris. I get anywhere from 40mpg@80mph to 50mpg@70mph highway driving. I do very little city driving. I use to spend $1600/monthly on gas using a 2000 Mazda Protege that I still have with 400,000 miles on it and never touched the engine except for maintenence reasons. With the Yaris I put $1200/montly. That's $400 savings on gas which is the same as a montly car payment.
this was in that thread that supmet posted

I could not sit in my car that long, I commute 119 miles a day for work (round trip) x4 days a week, and do some trips on the weekend, and I am only at 135,000. If that is the guy I read a thread on somewhere , I think he finally had a major problem with the vehicle, I'd be curious what failed I never heard anything further. I'm very happy with my Automatic Yaris at 135,000 its running great.

Your commute is just as long as mine. I have 130 mile RT but at 5 days a week. :( I'm at 60k. Time to see the doctor for a checkup.

What's your MPG?

There should be a 500K mile club for the lucky drivers that make it.

What kind of tires? My OEM Bridgestones (fronts) are 2 0r 3 mms above the wear bars at 26k miles. The rears of course are more than half there.

I would say the fronts and backs together might (might) last 40ks altogether.

My 1979 Chevy Silverado automatic has 400,000+ thousand on the origional transmission. Gave it to a brother in law who gave it to a friend who owns it now.

Three engines in that time. Some of them abused.

I have been following this never-stop-running-Yaris-story for a long time.
I am from Trinidad, and I do not believe the post about this Yaris doing all that mileage.
410,000 miles in 4 years = 102,500 miles per year.
That is 1,971 miles per week or 281 miles per day.
If you do an average of 50 mph, it means that you drive 5 hours 10 minutes per day, every day for 4 years ?

In our newspaper classifieds you can find odometer resetting services.

trini per4mance, this is a cock-and-bull story.

Worse than being a cock-and-bull story, is the amount of people actually believing the tripe !

Regards,
RR.

Nobody asked for your opinion. You do not understand what you are talking about...
