Who's in the 200,000 mile club? My 98' v70 t5 is at 225,000 + i say (+) because it has a heck of a lot more unclocked miles on it, abs sensor went down at about 223,000 and occasinoally kicks on and records some mileage but most of the time I'm odometer less, and speedometer less.

just clocked 266500 in my v40 1.9d on T plate 99. She still runs better than my old 51 plate 206 1.9d which had 80000 on the clock. Volvo are built to last in harsher conditions than the UK has to offer

I've got 255k + on '98 S-70. Had at least that much on a '75 240 and an '88 740. Speedometers on both of the earlier version died at about 200K.

Combining my first three Volvos, I'm somewhere between 800,000 to 950,000. My newer 2012 S60 only has 17,000 but I'll pass the million mile mark in it. One secret is using synthetic oil and changing it at 3,500 miles. I kept an excel file to record every oil change, tires, maintenance. Kind of anal, but I also recorded every gallon of gas and mileage. When I saw a sustained loss of mileage, I tuned it up.

it’s usually cheaper to repair a car that’s still in serviceable condition than it is to make payments on a new one. For others, however, it’s a mission. Case in point is Irv Gordon of East Patchogue, New York, who holds the Guinness world record for racking up the highest mileage in the same vehicle. At last count he’s clocked over 2,900,000 miles on the Volvo
