Default 300000 mile club

I'm a little late to post but I'm over 308000 now on my 07 MT and still running good. I'm using about a quart and a half of oil between oil changes. I recently changed out the suspension with a KYB/Eibach combination. Finally drives good again and much easier on the tires.

Holy crap!!!!! My '05 manual doesn't even have 80,000 yet. Lol bought her new in April of '05 straight off the delivery trailer. Never made it too the lot before I snagged her.

Congrats on the mileage, hope she holds up for a long time yet.

I had an 05 too Indigo Ink Pearl. Got it right off the truck.That was back when nobody in our area had any tc's in stock and 99% of the people didn't even know what it was. I totaled it in 07 hitting a deer. I had great luck with it also, I had 108000 miles on it when the accident occurred without a single problem. Here's a link to my 05 wreck below.

Is your check engine light on? Thats the only thing that worries me about having alot of miles on a car, that the check engine light will be on all the time for whatever reasons haha.

CELs happen over time as a car gets old and components/sensors start to fail. The nice part is that 99% of the time you can pinpoint the problem after pulling the code, fix it and enjoy your car again. That said, in my 9 years of ownership, I've only had 2 codes, 2 for an evap vaccum leak, once from a cracked vacuum line (happens with age/heat) and once from the gas attendant not tightening the cap. You can't pump your own gas in NJ because the people in this state are too dumb.

Congrats on that milestone!!

What are some of the bigger things you had to replace so far? I'm at 60k miles on my 2010 running raceland coils since 20k miles. I'm wondering what suspension I should go for after those blow...

Im wondering the same

Mine is almost at 170k, and although it runs great, has a noticeable tapping noise thats coming from the #4 cylinder. I bought it that way and its probably been that way for a long time now. I've read into checking and adjusting valve clearance. Very involved process, but the engine is running too good to not try and save it

The next step is removing the valve cover and checking the clearances. If they are fine and the noise ends up being the bottom end, I'll drive it until it wont run anymore, and then just throw in a used engine

That's awesome. I have 168k on my 07. No CEL yet. I have done all engine mounts, 3 batteries, 1 alternator, 1 belt, front brakes from wear(all 4 later just for drilled/slotted and new pads) All fluids when needed, 1 set of plugs, 4 sets of tires, and a valve cover gasket. Oh yea,and struts with lowering springs at about 110k

All in all.... the least expensive car I have ever owned and it's 8+ years on the road.(oct 06)
