140 miles a day commuting between home and work. Car had 43,000 miles when I bought it in 2011.
By the way, it's now just under 419,000 miles.
Just noticed, I hit a wrong key. My car is a 2010, not a 2020.

That is a ton of miles. Wonder how much longer it's got? My only experience is my 1998 VW. I'm within 3000 miles of hitting 500,000 miles and it's flatlining. Got a ton of blow-by and loss of power. Typical worn out engine symptoms.

Maybe it just needs new rings for the pistons.

I have 403,000 miles on my 08 kia spectra. I have had to do some repairs but it has been an awesome car. I took this picture of my odo at 400,000 miles.
How many cylinder engines are those?

I was just curious as to who had the Kia with the most miles. I got my 2005 Optima with 48,000 on it, and now I have 136,000.

Aside from a few problems with the A/C system, a replaced front axle, and an oil pan (because I bottomed out on a tree stump), I haven't had any problems out of this car. I did have to do the balance shaft belt and the crank shaft position sensor within the last 100 miles, though. All-in-all, a great learning experience even though it was a pain in the butt to get the timing belt exactly right. It's been a great car!

I was curious as to what mileage everyone else had put on their Kia's, and how they've treated you. Sort of a "high mileage club", I guess. Sorry if this has been asked before.

I have a 2003 Optima LX with original motor at 311,000 miles on it and it's still going strong. This has been the very best car that I e ever owned. " Who thinks they have me beat?"

My 2009 Kia Optima just turned 350,000, all original parts and still runs great!! Best car I've ever owned. I let my stepson drive it now and I bought a 2015 Kia Sorento. Love it!!
