    141k and no problems other than normal maintenance. Although my valve cover was leaking oil slightly but that was due to the old Pcv system which I changed to the newer style when I changed the valve covers.

    Re: How many miles do you have on your CTS?

    192,000 miles on my 2003.
    There a quite a few here with a lot more miles on their 3.2L CTS's. Gives me hope about these cars.

    I've had basic maintenence done at 100,000: timing belt, plugs, replace water pump.....
    Only engine issue, a blown coil on #5 cylinder.
    Only other powertrain issues, replaced the clutch, PP, throw out bearing and flywheel at 117,000 miles and replaced guibos with CS units at 165,000 miles.

    My Caddy still runs great. No oil usage between oil changes. It is holding up very well.

    108,000 miles on my 06.

    3.6L, absolutely no problems since bought at 65k miles. Trans and dif have been holding up to the beatings I give it too lol. Done normal maintenance, spark plugs, brakes, fluids. does use oil like the typical 3.6's though lol

    98,000 miles and no real mechanical problems. Just did preventive maintenance at 97k (serpentine/timing belts, sparks, and water pump) and everything's been good otherwise.

    Oh yeah, except I recently discovered a leak that's soaked the carpets *from the bottom up* throughout the car. Top of the carpet was dry (beginning to get a little...humid/moist) but the foam spongy material underneath was totally soaked. It was a literal sponge that is saturated with water.

    It's day 5 since finding this issue and my mechanic can't figure it out, at all. Taking it to a dealer hopefully this week...

    OTHERWISE, until now, the CTS has been relatively flawless. At least this isn't anything mechanical...

    '07 with 71K, I have put about 35K on it myself in the last 3 years. A clunking noise when I shift was finally blamed on the drive shaft, so I had that replaced under warranty. Now she's finally burning oil like the rest of the LP1 and LY7 engines. I'm a little bummed about that. Other than the oil burning, I would say I'm in good shape.

    190k on 2006 2.8L. No major issues other than new radiator, timing chain (mine didn't fail, replaced while was in there for leaking timing cover gasket), 2 wheel bearings, differential bushing, front sway bar bushings, 1 outer tie rod. Original transmission and shocks. Plan to keep another few years.

    27k on my 06 2.8 6 speed. No issues yet. Still under extended warranty. Picked it up a year and a half ago with 15k on it. An older man had it and kept it in the garage except for the weekend. Got lucky to find this one. Gonna keep it for a few more years and sell it once its around 65k miles. That way I can still get a decent buck for it. Then on to either a 2nd gen, Acura TL sh-awd manual, Mercedes c300 manual, 5 series BMW manual, or Subaru legacy 2.5gt manual. I can't drive automatics. I love manual trans
