Volvo High Mileage Club FAQ
Why are there two pages on this web site?
There was never a 'public' place for owners of high mileage Volvo cars to 'advertise' their 'glory', so some years ago the 'unofficial listing' as it is now called was formed on this web site. Then in 2006 the Official Volvo Register was formed.
What is the difference between the two?
The original web listing is open for anyone to add their own high mileage. No stickers or badges are issued. There is no registration nor need to prove your mileage, you just fill in the online form and it is automatically added to the list.
The new 'Official' list was created jointly by Volvo Car UK and the Volvo Owners Club. To be listed you have to send some reasonable proof of the mileage such as a photo of the odometer or a scan of a garage bill. After being entered into the register you are sent a free window sticker. You will also have the opportunity to purchase a metal grille badge according to your mileage class.
What is the minimum mileage to be listed?
150,000 miles on each of the lists.
My car records kilometers not miles, can it still be listed?
Yes, in both lists the kilometres will be converted to miles.
Can I be listed in both lists?
If I am already in the 'unofficial' list do I automatically get entered into the 'official' register?
No. You must apply to be listed in the official register.
How do I apply to be entered into the official register?
Go to the menu at the top of the page and hover over HIGH MILEAGE. Then select "Official Register" from the drop-down. This will take you to the registration page for the Official Register.
Can anyone view the official register?
Yes. Go to the menu at the top of this page and hover over High Mileage. Then select 'Official Register'. You can then choose the class you wish to view.
What are the classes in the Official Register?
There are three classes. The Gold Class is for cars with over 500,000 miles. The Silver Class is for cars between 300,000 and 499,999 miles. The Bronze Class is for cars between 150,000 to 299,999 miles.
How do I get on the unofficial list?
Go to the menu at the top left of this page and hover over High Mileage. Then select 'Unofficial Listing'. You then select "Add new mileage" if this is the first time you are entering it.
How do I update my mileage in the unofficial list?
