I wanted to see it roll past 200,000km.

I missed it by 3km.

Can't you just back up?!!

I went 298k miles in my Ranger before the engine let go, I was trying to baby it to 300k and she spun a rod bearing.

 

Ram went slighty over 200k miles before I sold it.

I had a 1996 Dodge Neon SOHC ATX that had 396k on it when I sold it.  I didn't put all those miles on it, not even sure if that was the correct miles.  I put maybe 10 or 15,000 on it.

A few months back our Corolla started to approach the 300,000 kms mark.  I was on my commute home from work, arriving at home probably 10kms from the mark.  My wife had to go out that evening and was eagerly expecting it to happen when she was driving, given the length of her drive, and she drove with her camera ready to capture the moment.  When she hit the 299,999 mark, she prepared to pull over to take a picture when it happened.  She drove ... and drove ... and drove, the odometer staying at the 299,999 mark.  Turns out that the odometer had had enough of working so hard over the years and decided to quit at that moment, forever showing the 299,999 kms.  Now it just looks at us, laughing, forcing us to use the tripmeter to track our mileage for oil changes and what not.  My wife was pretty disappointed, but me, I kind of like its attitude.

I can't today. I gotta get to town, and do a bunch of running around.

Maybe tomorrow.

My truck should have 245's but it has 265's and I just made a 900 mile trip and found my trip meter 32 miles less than what the Garmin showed.

Different size tires can do this.  I recently went to 10 ply with a lot deeper tread and it threw mine off a couple miles in miles 200+ too.

I hope you're not sitting in the 06, waiting for it to hit 100k.

My Grand Cherokee is down with a bad master cylinder so a guy from church loaned me his GC.  It hit 184481 the other day.  I think mine is knocking on 140k...

Last Saturday we took a drive up in the Mt. Rushmore area in the '55 GMC and the odometer turned 30,000, just don't know if it's 130,000 or 530,000 or what! Took the pic tonight though. around 7,000 of that is what we have put on it since it's revival in Sept 2011.
