How many miles should I expect to get out of the 2003 CTS? Thus far I have 120,xxx miles on mine and I wonder daily if it's the last! Love the car...but it's the last Cadillac I'll buy (more than likely).

What is the mileage you guys have if over 100,000?

Not a CTS but my 2001 Seville STS is still alive at 232k, just bought my CTS to avoid murdering my bank account further for at least a little while....

I'm currently at 206215 miles on my 03 [3.2L] CTS.

I change my oil/oil filter every 4-5K miles and air filter every six months. I also add fuel injector cleaner [seafoam] every 10K. Adhere to a good diligent maintenance protocol and you should obtain good long life.

Yeah, its really a crap shoot like Jimmy H says. I maintain the crap out of all my cars, I've had some last a long time and some blow up at like 55k miles

I've got 137000 on mine, and 1 of the valve covers just started leaking. Ever since I worked for Ford, I only buy GM, maybe HOnda/Acura, but thats it. My 03 CTS runs like a bat outta hell now, and once it takes a shit on me, I'll be buying another one. And then build a true twin turbo V6 monster!!! HAHAHA

The 3.2l may not have the same performance,but it seems to be a more reliable. Sure the 03 has other issues.

my 05, 3.6l has 160 000 miles on it and runs great.

If I've been able to drive more than 230 000 miles with my dodge intrepid with the famous 2.7l, I,m sure I can do the same with the CTS.
