I always see the threads for members posting about who has the most amount of miles. We might have the king of them all. A guy who comes into my Dad's dealer just traded in his 2012 Cruze 1.4t with 650,000 miles on it. The car still has the original engine and 6 speed automatic. He had his oil changed weekly the entire life of the car, and ran FR710's and would get 80k on each set. The car has had 3 turbos put in, and was about to need its 4th turbo. He ended up trading it in on a Trax, and the Cruze was sold to someone at the dealership and is still going.

Before the Cruze, the guy had 2 Cobalts. To give everyone an idea as to how much more reliable the Cruze was, both Cobalts made it to about 500k before they were totaled. Both of them needed 3 transmissions to make it there, and both also needed 2 engines to reach 500k.

That's insane! Guy at your dealership must've gotten that car dirt cheap.

The Crazy part according to NADA is that rough trade in was $3,050 , and retail said $7,100. I'm sure they took care of him since he's bought his past 3 cars there and did all his service there.

Lol wouldn't be caught dead paying $7100 for a car with those kind of miles.
I know right? I'd give them 1500 maybe. GM should have bought it for advertising purposes.

If it hit a million miles, they probably would have.

Can you post a pic of that odometer?

What'd the body look like at that many miles? How'd the interior hold up?

Man, he had to be racking up the miles like a long-haul trucker. That's something like 2,700 - 3,000 miles a week depending on when he bought it. Assuming an average speed of 60 MPH, that's at least 45 hours a week at the wheel. What does he do???

Must be a courier.
You hit the nail on the head. I'll try to get some pictures of it. I know that the car is going to end up on some used car lot in the area because they bought it to flip it.

Not flipping anything with that many miles. At least not for some great profit.

The only thing I can figure is that the trade was more like a grand, and then they are just going to throw a complete junkyard engine and transmission in it. It will probably go on one of those buy here pay lots and someone will pay 10 grand for it after interest, lol.

That's a turbo every 165,000 miles.

Why would he change his oil weekly?

How much does it cost to replace a turbo?

Curious.

Actually every 216,000 miles. Said he was needing his fourth at 650,000. Changing his oil every week which would be about every 3000 miles I would think he could get more life out of the turbo. But what do I know.
