116000 miles on my 2004 Vibe, and still the only unscheduled maintenance was a new battery in 2006.

368,800 MILES! Or about 593,500 kilometers.

And just think. Only two payments to go on my '04 Base and she's all mine! Kinda disappointed. Expected to be in the 400-450k range at payoff. Just don't drive as much as I used to at work these days...stupid bad economy.

Just joined the site, own from new a 2003 Vibe, base, 5spd, power package. Now the odometer has been stuck for 2 weeks at 299 999 kilometers (roughly 188 000 miles), looking to find a way to either reset the odometer or get it to ''flip over''

CONGRATS ON JOINING THE 300K CLUB! Probably the most cost-efficient solution is to replace the instrument panel. The mileage is stored in the odometer. Think joatmon tried to roll an odometer awhile back without success.

121,000 miles on my 2003 AWD--still on my original set of brakes. Had plugs changed at 120,000 along with tranny and radiator flush.
Still getting around 30mpg--almost all highway miles.

I may not have the high mileage award, but I think I'm in the running for throwing them on the fastest. I wish I'd found this site earlier. Anyway, I've got an '06 Vibe, purchased new in November, 2006 as a leftover model. It had 22 miles on it when I bought it. Right now I'm at 185,780. Not bad for under three years old. Not a problem at all.

Gotta love these stories of inspiration and aspiration...specifically the lack of problems our high mile vehicles have. Don't know about the '05 and up odometers but it still makes me mad that the '03-04 odometers stop at 299,999.

Our 2003 Vibe crossed 126,000 miles on the way to the dealership to be traded in. I believe it was sold to a dealership employee's college student age kid. No significant mechanical problems in seven years, which was also the case with our NUMMI-built 1994 Geo Prizm. The Prizm had 118,000 when it was totalled in a low-speed accident.

Our 2010 has just under 4,000 on it. Great car.

You just might be able to do that, the Vibe is a strong car.

Unfortunately only 2134 miles on our 14 mo. old '09 Vibe. Yep---I told my wife we didn't need a 2nd car but she fell in love w/ it when she saw it at the GMC/Pontiac dealer the day we picked up our new Acadia. Oh well, guess it helps to keep peace in the family.

It's a couple of days (and about 400km) out - but I took these photos of both my '09 Vibe's odometer, and my '65 Valiant's odometer. Although it's not entirely fair (the Vibe is in km vs. miles) - it still seemed funny to me - with one being 44 years the senior and the same reading (yes, it's original too).

EDIT: Oops - I've got to learn how to post photos on here properly. Here's the Vibe one first.

Another edit - sorry the Vibe photo is a bit fuzzy - I was moving at the time. I know it wasn't wise - but traffic was light or I wouldn't have tried.

Obviously I don't drive the Valiant much. It's my garage queen for a few sunny days only. I've had it for 2 years and I think that's just over 1,900 miles I've put on so far. The Vibe I bought new in March this year.

Here's the photo for that one:

Sorry for the two posts.

Just turned 89,998 miles this morning. The extended warranty expires at 94,400 miles. Only things we've used with the extended warranty so far were a new serpentine belt tensioner, a front driver's side wheel bearing, and free towing to a dealer when the poorly installed (by the dealer) alarm shorted and wouldn't let us start the car.

Approaching 45,000 on my 2006. Would be a lot less, had the first 20,000 not been put on in the first year! Glad I don't have my old drive to work any more.
