We have a new series of badges for those members who spend waaay too much time in their driver's seat. These badges start at 100,000 miles and then increment every 50,000 miles to 500,000 miles. Above 500,000 miles we'll increment every 100,000 miles. The current badges are:

Badge:
100,000 miles / 161,000 Km
150,000 miles / 241,000 Km
200,000 miles / 322,000 Km
250,000 miles / 402,000 Km
300,000 miles / 483,000 Km
350,000 miles / 563,000 Km
400,000 miles / 644,000 Km
450,000 miles / 724,000 Km
500,000 miles / 805,000 Km

The Kilometers are rounded to the nearest thousand. The badge is in miles.

To get one of these post a picture of your master odometer. You'll only have one at a time so when you reach the next badge we'll swap in the new badge for you.

Yeah I think its a great idea to recognize members for their mileage I just wish GM would do the same. I would like to see more members receive these badges. Are members expected to prove their mileage by submitting pictures of their odometer ?

I don't know who is responsible for the badges it certainly wasn't my idea but I remember these badges being talked about for a very long time. I would certainly like to thank whoever took the time to create them. Hopefully other members appreciate them as much as I do.

I will require the 300k badge May 1st hahaa im curious what it looks like. I have been considering some sort of high mileage badge for the cruze I drive.

Oh and I almost forgot..... I want to thank my cruze for getting me to 300k and never leaving me stranded on the side of the road.

Picture of the odometer is all we need. If it's in kilometers we'll convert to miles. I updated the initial post.

I'll probably buy a Malibu but not this generation. GMs current offer is tempting but while it will lower my payment a little it isn't enough to factor in the extension of the loan. I got his blessing for the android based radio nav head with a dash cam and reverse can and the headlights so all is right with the world. I already had his blessing for the better set of brakes. Other then the ventilated seats that covers everything I wanted. And he pointed out that the 2015 Malibu doesn't have ventilated seats either.

I'm a couple hundred miles shy of 72,000 miles. This is such a great little game. It in a way is motivating to get the badge. I want the 300,000 badge.

I think the Cruze can do that easily enough if no major problems develop in the first 50,000 miles of the cars service life. Basic maintance plus I think it is 100,000 or 150,000 the timing chain would need to be replaced. Other then that and replacing parts that break I think the Cruze would do nicely.

Awesome Idea by the Mods...as always.

And I was really hoping CEBT was going to post in this to see his badge =]
He, along with a few others, have posted odometer pictures elsewhere. The problem is I don't know who the other members are and I knew CEBT was over 250K but not yet to 300K. I had AutoGuide add the 350K badge so we wouldn't have to go back too soon for more of these. :)

If I still had my 2011 LS I would probably be @100K, but I had to start over with my 2012. Nah a lot of my mileage on Eco is just to see what kind of MPG I would get so I probably wool not have done the same with only the LS. but maybe. I will get there sooner or later, depending on how much I drive to work instead of riding the bus to avoid the traffic headaches and actually wake up early enough to catch it.

I had some time on my hands this evening so I went through the site looking for high mileage reports. I added a few 100,000 and a couple of 150,000 mile badges. Figured we needed to get some of these out there for people to see.

I don't need another badge, for how much I drive or MPG or anything but I need some recognition for something. Heck I am computer programmer at the welfare department for the last 18 years and most you guys have done more exciting things than me.
