I bought my '05 Focus back in February of 2005. I've only just hit the 40k mark!

2001 Pontiac Sunfire. My wife and I bought it brand new in 2000. In 05 became my daily driver to work. Flipped 128,000 this week, the only thing to fail is the water pump 2 years ago. It knocks down mid to low 30's MPG depending on how hard I am on the gas.

87 Camry, on it's second transmission but original engine, 220K. Scirocco has over 300K showing, but engine has been "refreshed" by a previous owner about 100K ago. DW's Subaru has 240K, original engine and trans as far as I know. 71 Impala, not a daily but still runs OK, has about 220 on original engine and trans, about all I have changed in this car is the radiator and driveshaft (beyond brakes, plugs, etc. wear items)

I own three cars and don't drive every day, so I have no "daily driver" car.

However, I did from 1999 to 2004. Back then I only had one car and I drove it to work on weekdays, about 4 miles one way.
The car? A 1976 Cadillac Fleetwood Seventy-Five Limousine.
59,474 miles when I bought it in '99 and it had about 92,000 miles when I bought other cars and it stopped being my daily driver.
I still own the limo and it still has under 100,000 miles, but just barely under.

Naturally, if I had a long commute no way would I use a limo as a daily driver! It gets 9-12.5 mpg, but you can't find a more elegant way to drive to work!
