I'm running around on 152000k mi. Still kicking on its second motor thought the first one went due to the PO (he didn't tighten the crank pulley enough, came off almost, broke the crankshaft snout all the way to the timming gear, would've just put a new pulley on since it wasn't too bad but that made it knock on cyl.3). Should easily hit the 200k mi mark. Only left me stranded once and that was a dead battery. At times I'm in ah of the way this car is lasting. Its been practically abused it's whole life. Drag raced, off roaded, and having to put up with my aggressive driving day in and day out. Its really a well built car. The doors still close with the nice thud that they have since I bought it (52,000mi) Same with the trunk. All in all I have been pleased with my car and love which is the only reason it has the mileage it does. Lesser people would have gotten rid of it by now thats for sure.
