Yes, buying a super mileage car is possible. The proof with these five classified ads over 500,000 km!
Buying a car that already has more than 200,000 km on the odometer involves a certain risk. Clutch, gearbox, peripherals, even the entire engine, many are the parts that can fail at this age, and will likely cost more to replace than the car’s value.
But that does not prevent some from selling cars whose meters show 3, 4, 500,000 km, or even more! Auto Plus has brought together a small selection of these ultra-mileage cars here. Obviously, don’t expect to stumble upon a perfect copy, and if you want to get started, you can. But there are a few things to find, once you have sorted out the cars that are advertised at 700,000 km but have only 70,000: typos seem common here, as do trucks elsewhere.
Volkswagen Golf 4, diesel, 580.000 km
This Golf 4 has already lived a good life. Bonus point for the compact, the announcement seems honest about the condition of the car: the seller warns, “significant wear with rust in several places”. Nevertheless, the engine would work normally, and the technical control is in order.
Renault Clio 3, diesel, 540,000 km
This Clio 3 diesel also greatly exceeds the half-million-kilometer mark, but does not present so badly on the few photos, except for the optics which deserve a renovation. Better, it would offer air conditioning, which we hope is still functional.
Peugeot 206, diesel, 630,000 km
Very little information on this 206 of more than 600,000 km, with only one photo, of poor quality. However, it seems very expensive given its mileage … For fans of negotiation, or Russian automobile roulette.
Citroën Berlingo, diesel, 560,800 km
This Berlingo van appears to be in fair condition, and is sold by a professional, who indicates that they have carried out a major overhaul. The driver’s seat, however, is very tired. At 3,500 €, the price seems high given the long history of this Citroën.
Citroën C15, diesel, 731.000 km
We could not resist including you this announcement, for a Citroën C15 in a very bad position, since it is … In a ditch! The seller offers it “for parts”, and we do not advise you to buy it in the hope that you can quickly reach a million kilometers, except after a serious restoration. For C15 lovers, if they exist.
And a bonus for the end, this Renault Kangoo ZE electric, obviously ex-La Poste, which would total 800,000 km. We are tempted to believe in the typo, but a zealous postman could have accumulated these kilometers … Even if the announced autonomy is about 100 km. It makes loads!
As always when you buy second-hand, remember to request a technical inspection valid for less than 6 months. Especially with those high mileage copies, ask to know what has already been changed, even if bills go astray quickly at this age. Obviously, do not get started unless you are fully aware of the risks involved in these purchases.
