1.3 million miles

Recommended Posts

It doesn't really count if you rebuild the engine. I can understand the transmission, but you have to reset the engine miles when you rebuild the engine.

I don't want to argue the point, but over the road diesel tractor engines are routinely re-sleeved and re-built at a million plus miles and it is illegal to reset odometers on these rigs.

In the Aerospace industry it's called zeroing the hours; you have in reality put the engine back to the same condition it was in when built, no hours. The odometer reading is in miles meaning that vehicle has moved that many miles while engine readings are in hours.

Think of it this way boats do not have odometers they have hour meters  ;)

Yeah I guess reset the engine miles was the wrong choice of words, but you can't really advertise 1.3 million miles when you have rebuilt the engine. The chassis/body has 1.3 million miles. The engine has x miles before rebuild and x miles after rebuild.

Mercedes has several cars in their million mile club and some with original motors with no rebuild.
