267,000 miles on our 01' Dodge 3/4 4X4 long bed. Four front windshields, on our 5th set of Michelins, water pump, alternators (2), starter, belt tensioner, serpentine belts (3), two lift pumps, and an injector pump. But the body is in the same condition as when we bought it new and the engine (Cummins) is as strong as when we first drove it. I even keep collision on the insurance even though I know they could total it very easily. PROBLEM: I've never owned a rig and put this many miles on it before and I keep wondering when it will all come to an end?

I have a 98 and it leaves a trail of oil all over the place plus I have put over 6000 dollars in repairs. Its a beautiful looking car but a mechanical disaster. NO MORE CADILLACS FOR ME.(175,000 mi) and yes it was always maintained properly !!

1994 Acura Integra. At 225K replaced the engine, still going strong at 260K. It will probably last to 400K, more if we had not moved out of the southeast to where they have real winter with salt on the roads all winter!

I have a 1990 Deville with 51,000 miles on it. It is a beautiful car but it also is a mechanical nightmare. It is a perfect example of GM's effort to cut corners. Besides the headliner falling down, the automatic antenna died, the drivers window gave out and it eats fuel injectors like popcorn.
If I couldn't fix all this stuff myself it would be way too expensive to keep !!
