What happens when your Corolla odometer gets to 999,999...

Apparently... NOTHING!

A Toronto area Toyota dealer took this 2001 Corolla on trade a couple of years ago with almost a million km on the clock, and kept it on the road as a rolling billboard.

So a reporter went out to record the odometer rolling over from 999,999 and it just... froze. No 000,000 for you!

Full story: How a Toronto-area Corolla is driven beyond 999,999 kilometres - The Globe and Mail

How do you pack so many miles on a Corolla? In this case, it was used as a driving school car, and was religiously maintained.
