90% of all the cars I rebuild are impalas since 2000.. my own has 225000 and going strong I just keep the oil changed and replaced the plugs and wires once its a 2002 I bought in 03 with 80,000 on it on these 3.8's ,well any Impala if you keep the oil clean they run forever I see 300,000 all the time ...the 3900's are just as good too ..mabee better if they are great cars.the best daily driver in my opinion I'd hop in mine and take an 8hr drive to Fla without a second thought its made the trip many times.

Dragonoake A few years ago, I blew a head gasket on my Isuzu Trooper
With 187k miles on it, the cylinders looked like new - Couldn't even feel a ring ridge

harposrepair I use to work as a equipment and fleet mechanic for an oil field company and they would rack up 300'000 on their P/U trucks and still keep going. They used Sheiffers full synthetic 15W40 in every engine they run. We serviced the P/U's every 3'000, big rigs every 6'000, and equipment every 30 days. They had one rig they bought with 1'000'000 miles on it and retired it with a total or 2'000'00 miles only because a cylinder went down on the V8 Cummins. There's something to be said about a company that cares about how there equipment looks and how long it lasts.

That will usually make them last...

crussell85 Yes, the majority of the miles are highway miles, I work for a traveling construction company. I still think its an impressive amount of miles though

against all odds Can i ask about your commuting ritual?

crussell85 300,000 was always my goal, I won't trade it in, now I'm just curious of how many more it will go!

CrashFarmer2 I thought that you won some money!
A friend just traded in his Chevy pickup with 300,000+ miles. I was a little disappointed since I thought he would keep it forever. Of course it had went though several engines and transmissions as well as various other parts. I enjoyed the homemade door handles that were just a couple of scraps welded together.
