Pi Day: 7 Autotrader Finds With 314,000 Miles Or More
Yes, folks, it's that time again: Everyone's favorite holiday that celebrates a number. It's Pi Day, which occurs annually on March 14 to celebrate the mathematical constant Pi -- the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. In honor of the esteemed holiday, we've decided to make a little list: Some unusual cars on Autotrader that have traveled more than 314,000 miles -- a huge number by anyone's definition. Have a look at our six mileage champs below.
This 1997 Dodge Ram still looks good after traveling an unbelievable 615,417 miles in 20 years -- or just under 31,000 a year for more than two decades. Offered by Matt Castrucci Auto Mall in Dayton, Ohio, it still retains a surprisingly well-kept interior and an attractive exterior, though it appears some rust is starting to show. Still, this Ram has served as a reliable workhorse for decades, and it may still have some life left: It's offered for just $2,755.
This 2006 Ford E-350 van has the distinction of traveling the most miles on this list in the shortest amount of time: 393,818 miles in just 11 years -- for an average of 35,800 a year. Finished in Toreador Red, this Econoline van is in surprisingly nice condition, both inside and out, but there's no doubt the mileage will concern many buyers, even though it was all added by just one owner. It's offered for sale by Randy Wise Ford in Ortonville, Michigan, for $3,468 -- a great deal if the engine continues to last.
Honda Accords tend to be known for their reliability and this one is proof that they are, indeed, among the most durable cars on the market. This 1996 Accord has traveled a whopping 392,586 miles since being sold new in Maryland just a few days before Pi Day in 1996. It's had a host of owners, but it still seems to be in relatively nice running, driving condition, and it's offered for $3,306 by Welford Harris Ford in rural Siler City, North Carolina.
This 1995 Nissan Pickup has covered more than 530,000 miles in its 22-year life -- and it sure looks like it. An extended cab model hailing from a time when Nissan didn't even bother to name its pickup trucks, this Nissan Pickup looks like it's seen just about everything -- including at least two accidents, according to the Carfax report. It's now offered by Auto Barn LLC in the Atlanta suburb of Newnan, Georgia, for $1,999 -- and I suspect there's still some life left in it.
This 2000 Toyota 4Runner is highly appealing, boasting a one-owner Carfax report, a clean, damage-free exterior, and a well-kept interior. It's also appealing because it spent its entire life in Arizona, a rust-free climate that tends to be good on cars. The only potential drawback: it's traveled an amazing 361,957 miles since new -- an impressive figure for any car. And while a Toyota SUV like the 4Runner is expected to be reliable, this is an especially stunning display of dependability. If you're interested, go check it out at Auto Used Car, Inc., in the Los Angeles suburb of El Monte, California.
We all knew Toyota pickups were reliable -- but did we ever know they were this reliable? This 2000 Toyota Tacoma is offered for $3,994 by AutoNation Ford in Memphis, Tennessee, with an amazing 500,010 miles on the odometer after just 17 years -- meaning it was driven about 29,000 miles a year for nearly two decades. My favorite part is that it's just ticked over 500,000 miles, suggesting to me that the previous owner wanted to see the half-million mark cross the odometer before trading it in.
