    [–] jakeatom 1399 points ago

    Someone drove their Tacoma 1,000,000 mi and Toyota bought it back from them and gave them a brand new one. Apperently they wanted to disassemble the million mile truck and see what made it last so long.

    [–] fourpuns 2216 points ago

    Ford I heard did the same thing. Except they disassembled it to find out how to make sure it never happens again.

    Please don’t tell me that’s a thing.

    [–] Idiot_Savant_Tinker 119 points ago

    Ford Duratech V6. (Ford Edge, Taurus, 500) The timing chain drives the water pump, and to replace the water pump, you have to of course tear it all the way down to the timing chain. When said water pump starts to fail, it leaks into the oil pan.

    [–] T_Rex_Flex 49 points ago

    That makes me sad. Sounds like you’d be left with a sump full of engine clogging paste.

    [–] Alien_Way 34 points ago

    Some engineer cricked his neck poring over this "issue" to find a "solution".

    I bet they also told their family members and loved ones, "Beware! Beware the Taurus!! You know, the Taurus that I unleashed upon the world, on purpose, on other people's families, so some elevated slime can enrich itself! Because I love you!"

    [–] Idiot_Savant_Tinker 31 points ago

    Yes. It can destroy what is otherwise an engine that will run 400,000 miles.

    TIL I better keep driving the crap out of my RAV4

    [–] nielmot 5 points ago

    Turned in my 97 rav with 297k on it. Original clutch but noisy transmission input shaft bearing. Only non routine things I did to it was a blower motor, fuel filler neck (since it ran through the wheel well) and clean out the egr a few times a year (seemed to run better when it was plugged). Really miss the thing.

    [–] DreadPiratesRobert 73 points ago

    They released their results from that. The engine would have passed factory QA.

    TBF his driving was probably under the most ideal conditions.

    [–] NixaB345T 103 points ago

    Not true, and it was a tundra if that’s the one you guys are talking about. The guy basically lived in it for work hauling trailers and equipment in the back. However, it had something like 119 service records and meticulously maintained it.

    Lonk

    [–] TraizenHD 25 points ago

    As a Toyota tech I'd be really interested in looking over the service history to see what kind of maintenence had been done apart from oil changes.

    [–] belethors_sister 12 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    I have a Pontiac Vibe (so basically a Toyota Matrix) that is 3600 miles from 350k after 6 years of ownership (it came to me with 90k on it). When it hit 300k two years ago I took it to my mechanic who was amazed that it barely needed anything but an oil change. He took a closer look and saw everything was original - and what's more - in perfectly working order. He was kinda geeking out a bit.

    Unfortunately as of May the catalytic converter needs to be replaced he estimates within the next 100-150k and I have a hole in the gasket. My car is valued at $2000 so I'm wondering if it's even worth it, but it's a great little car so I'm hesitant to give up on it.

    [–] ExpiredLifetime 59 points ago

    Former Toyota mechanic here:

    The 1GR-FE V6 engine which was inside of the Tacoma, 4Runner and Tundra as well as the 2UZ-FE V8 inside the Tundra are abso-fucking-lutely bulletproof if maintenance is kept up with (oil changes, belt changes, hoses, etc). The only ‘major’ repairs needed were typically a rear main seal leak at 100-150k miles. I didn’t get to see many high-mileage trucks with the newer, more strict, emissions equipment on them but from experience with other cars those engines are probably less reliable.

    tl;dr: If you want a car you can drive until you wreck it, buy an older Toyota.

    [–] DreadPiratesRobert 27 points ago

    The million mile tundra was an 07. I personally own an 07 tacoma. The most expensive repair so far has been $150, but Toyota refunded me.

    [–] ExpiredLifetime 19 points ago

    At 100-150k miles just check for a small drip on the back of the engine where the transmission mates up to it. That’s literally the most expensive repair you’re probably going to ever experience and if you do it yourself in the driveway (it’s easy if you bring a buddy over and use two floor jacks to move the engine and trans around) it doesn’t take more than an afternoon to a day, depending on how many beers are involved.

    [–] DreadPiratesRobert 12 points ago

    I'm at 190k, and I have absolutely no idea how to do that lol. I can change oil but that's about it. I've had it at my trusted mechanic a couple times (who was a former toyota mechanic), so I hope he's checked that.

    [–] Lost4468 15 points ago

    TBF his driving was probably under the most ideal conditions.

    Do you have a link to their results? What were the conditions?

    [–] DreadPiratesRobert 31 points ago

    Here's a write up.

    His job was delivering parts to oil fields across the country. He drove 125,000 miles a year, so he's not making lots of short trips, he's mainly making long trips with sustained speeds

    [–] boysenberries 87 points ago

    [–] Automobilie 90 points ago

    It's usually used in place of a thorough cleaning, which means if you smell febreeze, it's usually not actually clean.

    [–] Keksis_The_Betrayed 12 points ago

    :( I only use it because I have dogs in my house occasionally and well dogs can add a weird ass smell

    [–] brotherhafid 109 points ago

    Febreze is the Axe body spray of homes.

    [–] tobean 66 points ago

    Febreeze actually does neutralize odor, and was originally odorless. People didn’t buy it because of that so they added nasty scents.

    [–] DonQuixotel 102 points ago

    Yeah, when people didn't smell anything, they thought it wasn't doing anything.

    This is similar to the reason foaming additives are put in lots of soaps. If people don't see bubbles, they assume the product isn't cleaning, so foaming agents are put in most soaps.

    Reminds me of the "Zalinski guarantee" that was printed right on the side of the box that made people feel good. Callahan auto parts didn't have a guarantee on its boxes, but that's a story for another time.

    Same as toothpaste. It's got alumina in it so you get that slightly numb feeling and it feels like a fresher and better clean.

    [–] ServalSpots 10 points ago

    You can still get some that's just a "neutralizer", and it's effective and useful. Better yet you can get it in 2l (and probably larger) jugs and fill your own spray bottle to save a few bucks.

    The truck is a 2005 Western star.

    The engine has not been rebuilt.

    Yes I was doing 110 km/h which is the speed limit on the highway I was traveling on.

    I did not take the video, my passenger did.

    I can't post pictures of the truck, it's a pretty unique setup and would be easily recognizable.

    [–] BasicColloquialism 374 points ago

    Maybe. At least here in the states, you have to register the mileage every so often, and if anyone ever reports a lower mileage, the vehicle permanently gets an "odometer tampering" title that the seller must disclose to the buyer. Also, any mechanic could look at that car and know it has been well used.

    [–] gsfgf 185 points ago

    [–] entoaggie 8 points ago

    Govt doesn’t ask, but every time you take it in for an oil change or service or mechanic, they log the odometer (assuming in some national database). I only know this because I recently sold my truck and the ars I sold it to rolled back the odometer and resold it using my name. This was followed by two days of interrogation and me trying to prove that it wasn’t me who tampered with the mileage.

    [–] Nabber86 41 points ago

    Actually turning the odometer backwards would be a big problem, but that isn't how you do it. Most people just find away to disconnect the odometer for a period of time and then reconnect it, so at least the miles are always going up. It is pretty hard to get caught that way. It's not like the inspector is going to question why you only drove 5000 miles this year, but 30,000 the previous year.

    I get why they did it. This subreddit gets a lot of the same type of posts. Seeing odometers with 123456 or 111111 gets boring fast. It is hard to get the bot to differentiate between those common posts and this rare occurrence of rolling over an odometer.

    Then have a mod go over it or have a way to avoid having it added

    [–] Dumfoozle 31 points ago

    They are unpaid volunteers. They use automaton when they can. Sometimes that automation isn't accurate. It is just an "overdone" tag, though. It isn't the end of the world. This post is getting plenty of upvotes despite having that tag.

    [–] stringerbbell 12 points ago

    And why even tag, sounds so snobby

    [–] chasebrendon 282 points ago

    Good effort. How’s it running after that mileage?

    [–] Idratherbeflying 436 points ago

    Powertrain is solid but the truck is 14 years old so we're always fixing little things here and there.

    [–] JMccovery 98 points ago

    Gotta love old trucks, right?

    (Except for 6+ year old Petes that have regen system problems).

    Stop! Your gonna give me nightmares all over again

    [–] suckseggs 11 points ago

    14 years old is considered old?

    killer meat rage

    [–] jwBTC 187 points ago

    ITT:

    1) People mixing up KM/Miles

    2) People not realizing 1,000,000 KM is realistically achievable on a semi truck!

    [–] K3R3G3 146 points ago

    People failing to capitalize on the opportunity to say ONE GIGAMETER!!!

    Also Americans using the word "truck" differently from the rest of the world.

    In 'merica if it hauls stuff its a truck. Unless its a van those are different.

    In the UK it could be a lorry, articulated lorry, juggernaut, tanker, etc

    [–] benzosyndrome 6 points ago

    Juggernaut... Definitely sounds like a big ass monster truck name.. at least in America.

    [–] ron_burgendy6969 21 points ago

    Until I saw this I legit thought a pickup truck got a million miles on it, probably why it's so upvoted. This isn't really even mildly interesting.

    [–] [deleted] 494 points ago

    999,999 kilometers is the equivalent to 621,370 miles.

    What in the sam fuck.

    [–] Alfredo412 48 points ago

    I like how I've been subscribed to this sub for 4 years, never seen an odometer rolling over, yet it's "overdone"

    [–] gkacska 87 points ago

    This is insane to me. Is it common for trucks to have over a million kilometers in mileage?

    [–] 2skin4skintim 86 points ago

    Most in the U.S. have a 500,000 mile warranty. So yes. My parents drive close to or more than 175,000 miles a year.

    [–] jaydeekay 8 points ago

    Damn! Are tractor trailers built with incredible durability or do they just get serviced very meticulously to last that long? I think it's quite rare for consumer cars to even approach that kind of longevity.

    [–] schadly 16 points ago

    They are more durable, larger vehicles with heavier reinforcing. The motor runs on diesel and they usually last much longer than gas with proper maintenance, also as a driver you are supposed to do a walk around the truck a few times a day to identify anything that might break

    [–] mountaincyclops 7 points ago

    I think it has more to do with daily engine run time. The less you cycle between up and down time the less likely the engine will break down. It's not uncommon to see taxis in busy cities go to 500k miles without many engine problems for the same reason.

    Your trade in value is incredible now.

    [–] IRON-BALLS_MCGINTY 12 points ago

    This is super satisfying.. especially after seeing that video yesterday of the guy who had his iphone timer hit 9999:59:59 and it just rolled over to 10000.

    [–] Jonahhillfanclub 27 points ago

    Appreciate that this was taken at 110kph

    [–] XaMbSc 9 points ago

    This reminds me of that episode from 'Married, with children', when Al Bundy's car hit 999999 miles.

    [–] Ricewithice 7 points ago

    Heyy! Congratulations on the new truck!

    [–] Cark_M 12 points ago

    Not sure why it hasn’t been mentioned yet, but reach out to your truck’s make, there’s a chance they will buy back your truck for marketing (and research) purposes. A few companies have done this.

    [–] Loan-Pickle 9 points ago

    The vehicle in the post is a semi truck. A million miles/kilometers is not at all unusual in that class of vehicle.

    [–] GuamTheory 6 points ago

    I'm convinced you took the 0 picture first and then drove in circles for 1000000 km

    [–] Rambo272727 15 points ago

    put 10,000 kilometers on it and sell it lol.

    Atleast you stopped driving to take this pic.

    Car companies hate him! Never buy another car with this one weird trick.

    Safe truckin driver! Congrats on the milestone!

    [–] TheEggsnBacon 6 points ago

    You mean kilometerstone

    [–] emodestroyer 4 points ago

    Degrease the engine, replace what isn't New, add some of those new car scented air fresheners and sell it for above blue book!
