Just about to hit 179,000 miles on my wife's 2005 3.0i. I'm thinking we are going to upgrade to a newer model in the spring, April or May.

197,000 and counting on our 2005 4.4. We're hoping to reach 250,000. I throw in a quart of Lucas engine stop leak with each oil change at 5K miles because I need valve seals. Either that or 1 quart every couple of weeks of oil since you can't be more than 20% Lucas stop leak. Sometimes that's 2 quarts Lucas. The air bag light is on, There's scrapes on all 4 corners from sister in law's inability to drive anything bigger than her Civic. However, all in it's still a comfortable, quiet and somewhat quick SAV. It's long since paid for. I still have the original sticker. I wouldn't hesitate to get in it and drive from FL to Boston and back which will probably happen this Christmas. I'll post again when we turn the 200K milestone.

2001 with 3L M54 inline six. 167k and have owned it for a year. NO major mechanical repairs that I'm aware of, but the body panel damage repairs from a previous front collision probably were expensive. Since I've heard so much good stuff about the engine she happens to have in her, I plan on at least doubling the miles with regular full syn oil changes. Hard to say what the owner did before me except I have been able to determine he swapped the oxygen sensors by mistake when he replaced them all, so I actually hope he didn't do too much....I think he had a shop install the Xtrons nav unit, and they did a good job. I have since done a lot of little stuff like I polished the headlights, replaced the coolant reservoir, door actuators, window regulator, windshield washer motors, led bulbs, battery and positive cable BST(I was rear ended the day I bought her and that blew the BST). Right now, she needs a new aux fan, and to have both ends fixed from the accidents.
Patiently waiting for the local upullit to get one in so I can get the rest of the parts I need to pull that off.
