Here's a 2012 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter that's traveled 614,000 miles. That'd be a big distance for any vehicle, but to me, it's especially noteworthy, because this thing has done its 600,000 miles in just seven years since it was sold new. That's an amazing feat for any vehicle.

We'll start with the basics: this is a 2012 Sprinter 2500, and it's a cargo van model with the rear outfitted for hauling stuff -- no surprise, given the miles. The ad notes that it's built out for sleeping, which appears to be true, as it seems you may be able to use it as a vehicle for "van life" if you so desire. Or, of course, you can just keep racking up the miles as a hauler.

According to the Carfax report for this van, it was sold new in February 2012, meaning it's been on the road for almost exactly seven years -- and the first owner registered it in New Baltimore, Michigan, which is a small town just northeast of the Detroit area. Eventually, it was traded in to Mercedes-Benz of Farmington in Utah with 601,000 miles in May 2017, meaning it complete 600,000 miles in five years -- an unbelievable rate of 120,000 miles a year, or around 10,000 miles every single month. This sort of mileage is not uncommon for tractor trailer trucks.

The Carfax report notes that the next owner had the Sprinter for about a year and a half -- and now it's back on the market, offered by Dastrup Auto in Lindon, Utah, south of Salt Lake City, for $16,950.
