    120,000 miles

    My 2004 CTS-V (bought used in 2007) passed 120,000 miles last week. Over 7,000 of those came from a cross-country road trip last summer, including a drive along the Pacific Coast Highway behind a slow-moving RV.

    What's the current high mileage record here?

    It runs fine but I still wonder how long it's going to last. I don't know what I could get to replace it. The current CTS-V is a different and much less practical car.

    About a year ago or so, someone was significantly over 200k and running fine.

    All those LS series motors seem to run great for a long time. I would just stay on top of scheduled maintenance.

    The new CTS-V has bad fuel economy, more fragile tires, and more power than I can use around here.

    If I had a separate car for every occasion it would make more sense. I allow myself one car which has to function as a daily driver.

    I think there's a timing belt/chain coming up soon.

    Re: 120,000 miles

    I just rolled 99k miles. Tires have been the greatest expense yet, but I fear I am due a differential. Alas, it will be a blessing in disguise, I'm sure. The motor is strong and I fear no other mechanical failure aside from the diff.

    FYI I'm in 1.5 years and 27,000 miles in with MANY 400 mile trips across back country Indiana and a couple 1500s across country. Used is a DD and abused only mildly.

    My wife has a car, plus I have two, and we have a three-car garage. I can't tell you how many times I've wished I had a bigger garage. Then I realize I have too many other interests, and it's good we don't.

    Re: 120,000 miles

    Yeah a guy just a few months ago was posting about having 200k+ and everything original but thought he'd be needing a diff soon. With a lot of highway miles I'm sure these engines will last a long long time.

    Re: 120,000 miles

    Just keep up on everything and they will last and last. Now the electronic's end of the car, well see.......... Micro relays that cannot be replaced without replacing the entire fuse box hmmmmmm........ I have dealt with them in the past and they are a pain. I hope they have had good luck with the electronics but I don't really know to many people with many miles on them let alone finding one in my area that even owns another one.

    And if I recall he was quite apathetic with fluid maintenance except engine oil changes, plus it probably helps that its a highway queen.
