How many miles do you have on your 4.3?

Who has the highest mileage on their 4.3 RAV4?
I plan on driving my 2008 V6 until the engine breaks down. So who has the most miles on their 4.3? How long to you plan on driving it?

I have 128,000 miles (actually 205,000kms) on my 2009 Rav4 Limited V6 4x4 with JBL/leather - don't plan on ever getting rid of it unless it blows up.

79K km/ 50K miles. I drive only 15,000 km/ 9400 miles a year.
I plan on keeping the RAV at least another 5 years.

219k and no plans to stop. I'm a year away from retirement and then it'll slow way down. This may be my last car. Hard to tell with the way I abuse this car. I change the oil and do brakes and tires when they need it and that's all.

I probably would come close to winning the least number of miles driven - my '11 RAV V6 has about 9500 miles on it. It could well be the last car I own, and in any event it won't be traded in for a 4.4 RAV!

25000 on mine but it's been a busy couple of years for me. Now that I opened my business (only 2.5 miles from home) and bought a Prius for city driving, my Rav4 had become a weekend car (not even every weekend) for going to Daytona beach. I'm considering getting a tarp for it. LOL

I've got 37,500 miles on my 2008. I'm averaging a little over 500 miles a month. When the extended warranty runs out in November of 2016, I might start looking for something newer. However, since I'll probably only have 50,000 miles on it by then, maybe not.
