    Re: High Mileage Northstar Thread: Who can beat me?

    I have 96 STS fully loaded, I bought it with 40K, first of all I love the car, it has had it problems, transmission, water pump, fuel pump, battery replaced maybe twice, tail lights problems, I have over 250k, nothing have been done to the motor, it runs good, it seem like after 200k, the car has become maintance free, basiclly all I do now is wash it, change oil and drive it, I drive about hundred miles a day running at 80 mph plus, I think I love it more, nothing beat an old Caddy....

    Re: High Mileage Northstar Thread: Who can beat me?

    Hello Everyone,

    I have a 1995 Seville STS (Northstar) with 234,000km on it, all original. Engine and tranny have never been rebuilt. (Believe it or not) Car still runs and drives like it is brand new.

    I have about 145,000 on my 1995 SLS with no issues other than the standard oil consumption and a light for my tranny that I hope to fix with the solenoid kit. Still runs awesome and fast.

    I'm catching up with some of you. I have a 2001 DeVille with 92000 plus. I drive alot and wanted comfort in my 1 - 1.5 hour drive to/from work. I enjoy it daily and would not have anything else.

    98 deville with 92000 miles.......how boring compared to all y'all 6 figure folks.
    (original everything except wear parts and some electronics) Plan on driving it another year or two, should be joining the 6 figure club by then!

    Re: High Mileage Northstar Thread: Who can beat me?

    I have a '95 Eldorado with ~145K on it. Highway mileage is 29-31, and overall runs about 22-23. The engine has had very little work done to it (maintenance only), and so I consider this to be "broken in" mileage.

    Hands down it beats my 2004 SRX for mileage, comfort, kick-you-back-into-the-seat, fun-to-drive, and cruising range. I'm glad I kept the Eldo when I got the SRX, and I will undoubtedly have the Eldo long after the SRX lease ends (and I don't get another one).

    Re: High Mileage Northstar Thread: Who can beat me?

    Hi, My 1997 eldo has turned 109,000, and has been maintained with coolant changes every summer, and oil and filter every 1500 miles. The car has been trouble free since going into service september 1996 with 3 miles on it. I plan to keep this car as long as possible, and with proper service hope to reach the 200k mark.
