My last car, a Ford Laser 1994 had 340,000 Klms (214,000 miles)  before the heater hose rotted out, only major repair was the clutch. The 2002 Citroen Berlingo I just purchased has 195,000 Klm (120,000 mile). Runs like a clock bar the electrical gremlin that sees the temp gauge fluctuate to the red at the beginning of a journey {:-{

My 525 has done 168,000 & still drives as good as the day I bought it. Nothing serious done to it just regular service & cleaning. We fit my drum kit, the pa system, 2 guitar amps & 2 people in it no problem, & I wouldn't swap it for anything ! except maybe a new 5 series  :}

Omega estate W reg (2000) 108.000 miles, one new tyre, one exhaust system, new brake discs and pads, dodgy fuel tank guage, oil seal replaced on gear box,still goes like stink and burns off XR3s and the like, bit of rust but nothing serious.
 Seriously nice car, best I have ever had apart from my XR4 I V6 Sierra I had in my younger days, bloomin eck, that thing flew and had high mileage back then, 95.000 I think!

Petrol in Australia is around A$1.22 to A$1.30 per litre, and diesel about A$1.30 to A$1.35, depending on where you live. At the current exchange rate that means it's about 76p to 86p per litre.
