When this question was last asked a few months ago, there were two 2G CTS-Vs with over 100k miles on them. Neither had any significant drama associated with the mileage.

How about who's got the lowest lol, 2009 with 26,000 km, think that's about 15,000 miles.
Snows 6 of 12 months up here!

It may be considered unfortunate (perhaps worse) by some, but I have an early 2009 with 4,600 miles on it......

71,000 on an 09 auto. Rear end starting to wine again. At about 40,000 I changed the fluid twice and the
wine was gone until 65,000 miles and it came back. No other problems.

60K on my DD - clicking wheels & one faulty TPS until Pep Boys replaced the stock tires which made both those go away! No other issues otherwise.

Someone posted a bunch of info after reaching 100K not too long ago on an '09 car. Seemed really strong still.

I drove over 100 miles today to test drive a 2011 Coupe with 19k miles. Beautiful car, first manual transmission second generation V I drove. I absolutely love it. The clutch was burned out and consiquently could not hold part throttle in 3rd gear or higher. The sales dude told me that someone must have driven the car around with the parking brake on. Seriously?!? I'm sure the car had the crap beat out of it, but parking brake? Is that even possible? I assume that the clutch should last at least 100k miles right?

As far as I know, driving with the brake engaged is impossible and if it were it wouldn't burn the clutch up. If the clutch is fried at that mileage I'd run.

Great thread, Uebele! Thanks! Sorry to hear about the frustration you experienced while taking the 2011 for a spin; if you would like me to call the dealer for details or follow up on any other questions you may have, just let me know. I'm just an email away at Katie_Lucille@gmexpert.com!
