1 Woman, 1998 VW Beetle, 400,000 Miles
Alice Mannion, from Exeter Township Pennsylvania, has somehow managed to drive her 1998 VW Beetle 400,000 miles and still keep it running! Her daughter bought her the car in 2000 with 30,000 miles on it. Mannion says she racked up so many miles because she drives about 40,000 miles a year for her dog-sitting business and visiting her 8 children and 15 grandchildren.
Her secret, well she said she changed the oil every 5000 miles. Either that or a multitude of dogs and grandchildren giving love to the little red beetle.
She said she never thought it would make it to 400,000 miles however when asked about the cars future she said: “Will it get to the half-million mark? I hope so.” Well, we do too, good luck!
