Default 80,000 miles

Just passed 80,000 miles. Changed the oil for the 17th time ( every 5,000, plus I changed it with a few hundred miles on it) with synthetic.
Mileage OVERALL is 25.11 - consumed 3,186 + gallons of regular gas.
over the past 5,000 + miles I got 25.4 MPG, which, for the summer, is low (usually hits 26 in summer) so I cleaned my K&N filter.
Repairs? 1 ABS wheel sensor.
Tires, Brakes, plugs & wires. Still on original battery.

Yours has travelled 8x further than mine have. Not calling it old at all!

Woah. Mine went at 65,000 in the hot South Florida sunshine. Have a walmart special in there until I get unlazy and upgrade to something much bigger (mostly due to the stereo system I'm still installing).

Gratz on the MPG - mostly city here and I hover around 18-20. Long trips give me about 25-27 though.

I'm at 83,000 myself - 2004 limited. Had an upper mount go bad, and the coolant temp sensor. front end suspension Bushings are looking very iffy now too.

Actually saving up for the expected timing belt breakage any day now, rolling the dice that I can get $1200 extra together for it before I cross 90,000 and proactively do it.

Have you done many tranny fluid changes don? I just did a dump and refill/filter at 75,000, figuring the previous owner never did. About to do a flush when I get the timing belt handled.

I'm saving for the timing belt, too, and will do another tranny flush then.
Had it flushed at 50,000.

You should like mine then, a 2005 with only 15,000 kms (less than 10,000 miles) on it.
