are you ready for this .my 2000 silverado 4.8 4wd std cab long bed auto has 9118 miles on it .i got the truck from my friend of 50 years in november with 8400 miles on it .it is mint also it was free .
216,000 on my 1500 2wd Suburban.I bought it 4 years ago with 195,000 miles- $2950- didn't expect it to do anything except get us- 3 adults, 2 dogs, 4 cats-100 miles North of River Ridge Louisiana-suburb 4 miles W of NOLA.
Very pleasant surprise- it got 21 mpg on two 3000 mile hy trips- it gets 12-13 mpg in pure short trip city driving( when I'm the only driver it get 13.5 mpg in pure 3 mile-trips
Spent $1000 on parts etc to replace various things-radiator, brake booster, belt tensioner, bracket for front sway bar, shocks, water pump, intake gaskets, cam chain and gears- usual stuff
72,748 as of last night. sad thing is when i bought it un febuary it only had 67800 on it... :-( 3 1300 mile trips didnt help. Ran great the whole time tho, averaged 19 mpg running 75 tho whole time, and that was before the CAI, chip and exhaust.
an "amazingly high" 14,500 kilometers. (9000 miles). My Lancer gets the commute beating. i only use my truck when i need to go to a construction site or it's a really crappy winter day outside with 10 foot high snow drifts, and if i feel like taking it out for a drive on the weekend. and of course, hauling stuff and towing my boat. for family trips we use the Terrain. my truck still has washer fluid from 2009 in it.
I have a 1995 Chevy Suburban with 354,000 on it. The tranny is newly rebuilt (less than 1000 miles.) The engine I just finished and has less than 500 miles on it. I spent about nine months doing those two projects. When I bought it it had a replacement 305 TBI out of a 92 Chevy Caprice instead of the original 350. When that died (long story) I decided to rebuild it rather than get a 350. I just finished it a week ago or so but now am replacing the heater core and evaporator core. I want the AC working perfect. It was okay, but not quite right (and I broke the evaporator trying to free up a frozen ac line connection.) I've already done the rear expansion valve, which is a major pain. Now another huge pain up front. But worth it when done. Many, many parts are new, so the miles are largely irrelevant.
