Last year we bought a '96 Toyota Camry with a V6, with 246k on it. Could use rear struts and a valve adjustment (little noisy) but the thing still runs like a raped ape and we drive it daily to keep the mileage off the nice cars. Only paid a few hundred bucks for it too.
Got a 1991 Nissan Sentra 4dr 3spd auto for free with 18x,xxx on the odo. It was a nice addition to our all-truck garage. Except one of us didn't understand FWD driving dynamics and crashed it into a traffic pole making a left turn.
I bought a 03 PT Crusier when I was like 20 that had 98k. Worst car I've ever had. Exactly at 100k the head gasket blew. Radiator cracked. Fan broke. Water pump fouled out. Just a piece of [censored]. That soured me on all Chrysler products even to this day.
Only bright spot with that POS was when a drunk driver crashed into it parked in front of my house Christmas night. Got a claim check for like 7k. Bought my first muscle car (96 Mustang GT) and never looked back.
91 miata with 295k.original owner Only thing replaced was clutch and radiator(and hoses)
It had every single receipt since 1998. That's why i bought it actually. Every single maintenance was done at mazda dealer except for new tires done elsewhere
It did have a oil leak but i ran 15w50 and it stopped (south ga summer )
When i sold it after 10k miles i added my receipts in (receipt for oil and rear brake pads)
I bought an '88 Grand Marquis with 250k on it for $400, replaced the intake gasket as it leaked about a quart every 4-500 miles. Sold it for scrap after a few months (rust everywhere) and bought a very unreliable '84 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe that I ended up scrapping as well.
