GREENSBORO, N.C. -- One Greensboro man says his car reached 500,000 miles this past weekend and he's the only person who has ever owned and driven it.
Mike Lipperman told WFMY News 2 his 2001 Toyota Avalon still has the original engine and transmission in it from when he bought it brand-new that year.
So why does Mike think his car is still running well after all the distance?
Maintenance. Lipperman says he's been very proactive in making sure his car is in good shape.
Mike commutes daily from his home in Greensboro to Research Triangle Park in the Raleigh-Durham area - that's about 600 miles a week.
