A few years ago someone posted a picture of a V70 from Utah I think, with 720,000 miles on it!! That is closer to 1.2m km!

Apparently the owner just did regular servicing and wear out parts on it.

900k wow...and look at how nice it looks. Impressive. What sort of duty does it do to get that far?
Do you know where this car is, Matt?

Also impressive, the UT 720k miles!

Bart, I don't. It's an image getting passed around on Facebook, and a Google reverse-image search turns up nothing related.

Nice , Misha. Good eye for detail.

This car is almost 1/4 the way to Irv Gordon and his 3.2M mile P1800

I love it! Thank you for sharing! Once i start driving frequently, I'll get up to a million miles XD. I love my XC. And yes those are 1st gen s80 rims. They look great on that car. I didnt know they could fit though. The width is out there i think. I would like to get a set of those wheels that are standard on 850 turbo/t5 models. But i have a set of 17" aftermarket wheels that went on my Impala. Anybpdy know how reliable 1" spacers are? On eBay a set goes for $155.97.

Plans for The Storm: universal enclosed trailer with original fusebox and unique climate control system.
