What is the highest mileage anyone has on the 3.6L Direct Injection V6 and have you had any major problems? I am just trying to get an idea about expected reliability. Thanks

Not sure if your V6 is the same as mine, I am at 105xxx km, approx 65xxx miles.

Problems so far while I have owned it (approx 1 yr, 30-35,000km in that time)...

Motor related... water pump, battery.

Everything else.. I think my trunk switch went, passenger lock mechanisim is starting to act up, and there is a huge list to follow but it is nothing major.

Previous owner... no major engine items, battery and o2 sensor (wonder what that is about)

Well take whatever I said back... ****ing pile of shit is spewing blue smoke under load, also told me today to service vehicle soon when I just did the oil change like 2,000km ago. This thing is really starting to get on my nerves..

Thanks. I've had mine for 18 months and it now has 22,000. Just wondering about the future

Ouch! Blue smoke is oil. You have my sympathies.

I contend that by the time a particular engine design is retired, they generally have it figured out. The 3.6L V6 isn't there yet.
