    Default Broke 200K on truck last night

    While passing Joint Base Lewis-McChord last night my odometer passed 200K; without any major engine issues. I know this may not be unusual for other GM drivers but it tickled me to have my little, import driving, brother in the "burb". None of the vehicles he has ever owned has ever turned over even once without major issues. I just laughed and pointed while he caught an attitude and sulked; loved it!.

    CONGRATS on hitting 200k! You know, 200k is the new 100k! Get a photograph of your odometer if you have a chance and we'll let you join the 200k mile club!

    Steve,
    Here's the picture of the odometer. Thank you all for the acknowledgment but I must give credit to GM because I wasn't always on time or on schedule with the maintenance and some of it was sketchy, to say the least. Took me awhile to figure things out; this is a well built example of American workmanship; Thanks Detroit!
