To drive 1.6 million miles on the Hyundai Elantra is really

If you ever doubted the reliability of Hyundai, and this Elantra can turn all your ideas about this popular Korean car. This story began five years ago with the acquiring of the driver, the company is engaged in delivery, by the name of Farrah Haines, which in 2013 made his “Elantra” workhorse.


Working day of Terah begins with the moment as soon as she gets into his Hyundai Elantra 2013 release. At first glance, the car appears completely stock. Exception – the front “bumper” that protects the delicate plastic bumper from serious blows on the road. During the operation of the vehicle and its owner, fortunately, did not get into serious trouble, and after countless hours spent on the road, and average hitting at 320.000 km per year (200.000 miles) on the electronic odometer Korean sedan was highlighted a fascinating number – “999.999 ml”, which corresponds to the metric 1.6 million km.


Thus, the monthly Madame drove for 26 thousand kilometres or 888 miles a day, assuming that she went seven days a week, which sounds implausible. Or maybe she rolled over a little more than 1,200 km every working day. That seems no less surreal… her job is just to drive a car, not getting out from behind the wheel? The iron lady!


Okay, I’ll pretend to believe. Because Hyundai will not make a video not based on anything? By the way, according to this video, every passed mile was made with the original transmission, we don’t know whether to move a engine or transmission replaced, but even if a major breakdown were, the whole story still is a great achievement!



Modern cars can drive 160.000 miles, without batting an eye, and a mark of 300 thousand is achievable for most. With proper maintenance and careful driving some cars can go even further. Most motorists bump in the average year about 20 thousand km And this figure is stable and for residents of the United States. However Pharr Haines, she claims to love to drive, so she began to earn a living. Combined the useful with the pleasant.


American office “Elantra” installed on the car a new odometer with the logo “1M” and presented a gold plate frame that says “1 Million Mile Club”, which officially made Haynes a member of a peculiar club.


What are the plans on for the future? Take the next million miles. In five years, probably dashed off…


P. S. Recall that the Hyundai Elantra sold in Russia in the sixth, the previous generation from 994.000 to 1.275.000 rubles. The model can be purchased with a 1.6-liter 128-horsepower engine and 2.0-liter 150-horsepower engine. In 2019 the market will be restyled Elantra.
