    Default Million Kilometre Peugeot 504

    You have probably seen this before, but I had to share...made me feel all warm and fuzzy about the Pug:

    Popfrog,

    I think you're going to bite the bullet soon. BTW, a 404 is even nicer!

    Nice article

    As usual, some of the Pommie comments are disparaging. As far as Volvos in Australia go, none that I know of have reached magnificent mileage. Most of them ended up at the tip because their owners went broke due to spare parts costs.
    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone............

    My part-time neighbour has a very high mileage 240. It's done the Hume from near Wombat to Sydney, many times. They now split duties with a diesel 307.

    Ken may have more exact ideas, but fairly sure Australdi's white Fuego did almost 1.5 million km on the one motor.

    In the context of complaints about "flimsy modern" Pugs, I particularly liked the comment that said, "I fear we are too sentimental about the old and heavy. A present day Peugeot is a much safer place to have an accident in and the relatively light bodywork is likely to be far more resistant to corrosion. Weight really is the enemy where engineering is concerned, which is something the British and Germans, both rather addicted to the ponderous, need reminding of from time to time."

    No doubt it was towed by a DS3

    Plenty of high mileage Volvos here....any car that is well engineered and maintained will rack up huge mileages.
    I've got a 245 in the yard with 520,000 that was only parked because the clutch cylinder needed replacing and we found a twin cam 740 cheap....it will live again!

    Never owned a 504, but dad had a string of them when we lived in the outback when I was a kid, lovely things!
    Pugs Rule!
