Any questions?

Wow! Any major issues? Do you drive it hard at times? What about trans and diff fluid changes?
Would you buy another V when you trade? Impressive experience.....

Looks likes his V is still smooth/no camera vibrations at 100 mph. LOL

What has your maintenance experience been like? Any significant issues?

I think he's asking a rhetorical question, no? As though the 100K miles should speak for themselves, which they certainly do. Congrats on enjoying your car.

maybe..but he's one of the first 100K V2 owners, so I'd say he's obligated to answer some questions anyway :P

OP, how much oil do you burn? :stirpot:
Did you have the transmission serviced @ 50K or are you on the 100K plan?

kuudo's to the 100K/100MPH shot.

I will be taking the car in next week for the 100K service, trans fluid, plugs, etc. The original belts still look good, no cracking or uneven wear. The diff does start to groan during slow cornering at around
50K, so I've had the fluid changed twice and this solved the issue.
So far, approx 1/2 a quart low when the oil is changed which occurs approx every 8500 miles.
Zero significant issues with the car. Still feels very tight and when the tires are new, it's hard to tell that it has so many miles. the only thing that I notice now more than before is that the whine coming from the rear end seems louder than it used to, and only under load. When your foot is removed from the gas, the whine goes away. No big deal, so far, I'm the only one that seems to notice. It could be because everyone that rides with me is usually holding on the the door handle and watching the "boggies" coming into view. :shhh:

were your changes mobil 1 (or other synthetic) 5w30 DIY's or did you just let the dealer put what they had in there? thanks for the answers by the way. 1/2 a quart isn't horrible every 8.5k.

Mobil 1 5W30 did all myself. I love to look at all of the aluminum underneath the car.

I have been waiting for a thread like this. Good to hear of no major issues. Great attempt at 100 mph at 100k miles picture, LOL! I am mostly concerned, as others are, about maintenance because I am currently seeing no reason to trade out my car and frankly don't see much else I'd be interested in even if I did trade.

Then I am a little depressed, I suppose 1/2 a quart on 8K+ changes isn't bad for an LS driven hard on a 30W. I'm still used to running 200K on German engines without burning a smige of oil still I suppose, all of which have used 40W oils too though.

Although, if you haven't had the underside inspected, maybe it's leaking a smige instead? The RMS's are horrible on these things.

Well done on the photo! 100/100 - there should be some sort of award for that...

Warranty replaced my rear end about 10k ago...the new rear end has a little noise when "torque is taken away", i.e. coasting down from about 45 mph different from what has been mentioned above. I have mentioned this to my dealer...and they are watching it. I think I will do a couple of rear end lube changes to see if that helps...or if I need to push for a solution...

I echo the comment that there is not much out there that is as attractive as my V2...what a car!

Well, I'm not being scientific in my calculation. The one thing I have been watching for, and have not noticed, is the increased consumption during the last 30K or so.

What an outstanding accomplishment, says a lot about you and your maintance to say nothing about a great car. I should be so fortunate!

Congratulations! I had only hit 70,000 on mine before the lease was up. Same situation though. No drama, no repairs, just a lot of fun driving. Best of luck to you. I am sure you can go another 100K with no mods!

Agreed, very cool picture!

How are the seats looking? I worry about wear on the Recaro's bolsters?

I think the seats are wearing well.

You would think after 100 years of making cars, someone could figure out how to keep leather from creasing. They have self-healing paint now, but can't keep leather pristine.

Honestly, those seats look pretty good for 100K worth of ass play

I agree, and they still feel like new.

Every so often, I'll hear something, but after a couple of days, I can't seem to find it anymore. Can't say enough about build quality after this many miles. I only started to hear the "wheel clicking" after approx 90K or so. Never could figure out what everybody was talking about.


Seats look very good for 100k miles.

What interior rattles have you encountered

tbisme,

How have the magnetic shocks held up? Do you expect them to last the life of the car?

tbisme
11-15-11, 03:19 PM
I don't know if they will last the life of the car, but so far, they still feel like they're doing what they were designed to do. I don't know how to test the effectiveness of them. If someone knows how to do this, let me know.

I couldn't comment on the fluid Delip uses, however I do know that synthetic magnets loose their effectiveness over time. It may be so long that the seals wear out before the magnatism in the fluid does though. I would expect that it should be replaced and wear like any other normal shock. The only real way to test it however is a shock dyno.

Or drive an 09 V with 10K on it over the same stretch of road, and see if it feels different...

Tbisme, I can't PM you or email, but would love to ask you a few questions. I am considering a high mileage cts-v for purchase currently, and am trying to decide if it is worth making the jump from a 60k mile ESS supercharged e39 m5 to a 100k+ 2009 cts-v. My email is adiflix@ gmail.com. Thanks much.

even if it had a 22Gal tank, you're still talking < 270miles/tank on an A6. The E60 M5 guys have it worse than us honestly, they get 13 combined whether they have the SMG or 6 speed, at least the TR6060 offers 2mpg more combined than the 6L90E. There's also no easy or cheap way to streach out another few MPG from bolt-ons/tunes from the car like in the CTS-V. I just look at it as a way to ensure there's never old gas in the car.

The 300 miles, about 5 hours, is just long enough to take a break.
