Look how the Octavia looks with a run of 695 thousand kilometersMay 21, 2018
The authors of the YouTube channel Car Throttle showed how a car with a mileage of 695 thousand kilometers can look if it is correctly and timely serviced. As an example, they took the diesel Skoda Octavia, which was completely inspected in the technical center of Volks Techniks.
It turned out that despite the significant mileage, the car still has an original engine, turbocharger, exhaust and shock absorbers. The engine valves are in excellent condition, and there are only minor corrosion marks on the suspension elements.
In 2014, Volvo confirmed that the American, Irv Gordon, drove the Volvo P1800 for almost five million kilometers in 48 years. The car owner noted that the secret of “survivability” is that he observed all the rules of operation described in the instructions.
