How do you get your car to 3 million miles with all original parts?

Just ask Irv Gordon. Gordon, who holds the Guiness World Record for most miles driven by a single driver in a non-commercial vehicle, touts regular vehicle maintenance and superior Volvo engineering as key to the 2.9+ million miles he’s racked up in his 1966 Volvo P1800. Irv changes the oil religiously every 3000 to 3500 miles, the transmission fluid every 25,000 miles and he replaces the points and spark plugs every 20,000 to 25,000 miles. He has had the engine rebuilt twice and has all routine maintenance done according to the factory manual. All repairs, minor and major are performed in a timely fashion. Minor repairs are done by Gordon himself, major repairs by Volvoville in Huntington, NY, the dealership where he purchased his high-mileage Volvo in 1966. An interesting factor in Gordon’s vehicle maintenance success; no one else has ever driven it.

Even if you aren’t able to claim sole drivership of your Volvo, Saab or other import vehicle, it’s no secret that thorough and timely regular maintenance and repairs, done by experts with quality parts and materials, will extend the life of your vehicle.
