My dads has almost 290k!!! granted the car is about to die, but its still running strong!!! He also drives 150 miles round trip each day 6 days a week since 1999!!! so I would say it depends on what kind of driving you do!!!

I'll get a pic of the tach when I get a chance, the li'l thing just keeps chuggin!!!

^^^ so who was the bastard who said u can't run the piss out of american machines for 6 digit mileage??? something better is my best friends dad has a 1990 1/2 ton chevy pick up... orig motor, orig trans, 2nd clutch. the odometer broke at about 390kish... it broke like 4 years ago... drove it everyday for a 55 mile trip each way up until about a month ago when u upgraded to a newer truck...however "old blue" is still running and is now being abused with fire wood duty.

Had mine changed at 140k but the tech said I could have gotton a little more. O well, it's got 155k now. The back brakes are still stock, changed the front at 100k
