Whilst rummaging through the paperwork that I have for Deux Smurf the other day, I happen to notice that she was first registered back in 1996 on the 1st of February. As it was indeed the 1st of February I thought it would be a bit of fun to put a photo of her on social media declaring that it was her 22nd birthday, and what happened next took me by surprise. I received a message back from Toyota GB asking for her mileage as she may be eligible for their High Mile Club.
Their what now?
Yup, Toyota GB want to celebrate the fact that they’re famed the world over for creating vehicles that embody incredible reliability, exceptional long-lasting quality and amazing durability. So, following requests from owners, Toyota GB created a new way for people to show off how proud they are of their vehicle - the Toyota High Mile Club.
The club celebrates all the Toyotas out there that have covered truly epic distances and produced a limited number of exclusive interior window stickers so owners can show off their car’s stunning mileage, and Toyota's reliability.
There are 3 versions of High Mile Club stickers:
- Bronze for 150,000 miles
- Silver for 200,000 miles
- Gold for 300,000 miles
On the 1st February, 2018 Deux Smurf had covered 290,545 kms, which equates to just under 180,500 miles, making her eligible for their bronze sticker.
So if your Toyota has covered over 150,000 miles, then let them know by posting a picture of your car’s odometer with the hashtag #HighMileClub on either their Facebook page Toyota UK, Twitter page Toyota GB, or Instagram @ToyotaUK.
They’ll then get back to you in a private message asking for your address details and in return they’ll send you a sticker.
Toyota High Mile Club stickers are available in the UK only, and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis as apparently, numbers are limited, so if your ‘yota has epic mileage, get cracking and let them know!
