In the U.S., Farrah Haines, who owns and drives a 2013 Hyundai Elantra, has clocked up 1,609,344 km (1 million miles) in five years, on her vehicle’s original powertrain.
Haines, from Olathe, Kan. in the Midwest, drives approximately 200,000 miles (322,000 km) a year delivering auto parts and products.
Because most digital odometers stop rolling over before they reach 1 million miles, Hyundai Motor America joined Haines as she reached her epic milestone.
Hyundai presented her with the first-ever 1 Million Mile Emblem and added it to her odometer. The emblem is a genuine Hyundai part and is now available for the odometers of all million-mile drivers.
“This is not only a milestone for Farrah, but also for Hyundai and the quality of our vehicles,” said Dean Evans, CMO, Hyundai Motor America. “Reaching one million miles with the original powertrain in just five years is an extremely rare and incredible achievement. We created the 1 Million Mile Emblem because we believe in making things better for our loyal customers and look forward to other Hyundai drivers joining Farrah in the one million-mile club.”
