Mercedes-Benz wants to honor you and your car.
Yep, you heard that right.
Mercedes prides itself on producing cars that are capable of galactic mileage sometimes rivaling that of Apollo era spacecraft. The engineers work extremely hard to ensure that with only basic maintenance these cars are just getting started when others are starting to pack up. But you already know that.
Currently the highest mileage Mercedes is owned by Gregorios Sachinidis, a Greek taxi driver. His 1976 240D has now past 2.8 million miles. More than 11 times the distance to the moon. The Koschels in California have a 1970 280SE, the car has exceeded 1 million miles. You don’t need to hit these numbers for Mercedes to honor your achievement. Since the 1960s Mercedes has been awarding owners for their mileage accomplishments.
The High Mileage Award Program celebrates cars that have reached:
155,000 miles (250,000 kilometers)
312,000 miles (500,000 kilometers )
466,000 miles (750,000 kilometers )
625,000 miles (1,000,000 kilometers)
1,000,000 miles (1,610,000 kilometers)
When you achieve one of these milestones Mercedes-Benz will reward you with a personalized certificate and awesome metal grille badge certifying the event.
