'01 Limited with 140k+ miles. Bought it at 45k 3 years ago (had a 100 mile round trip commute for a while).
Replaced clutch+ cable, timing belt, water pump, & right top motor mount. Also had 2 spark plug holes sleeved when the plugs blew out on the highway.
It looses 1/2 qt oil per week, but I can't tell where (mechanic can't find leak either).
Still runs real strong, but gets lousy mileage (25-27 mpg highway) compared to most any other 4 cylinder.

48k. (non turbo)

I sold my old 94 V6 Camaro w/ 180k and bought this car 3 months ago @ 45k.

It's been great so far and haven't had any problems other than a faulty O2 sensor code.

Just had the 48k service and the mechanic said it was in prime running condition, for whatever that's worth.. LOL

I rented an '06 Cruiser a couple years back on vacation and enjoyed it a lot so when it came time to buy a new used vehicle I went looking for one.

I love this car, and only have 1 complaint. 20 mpg city and 23 mpg highway seems a bit low for a 4 cylinder.

Ugh, haven't had time to see if the oil pressure light was the problem, or if there was an actual oil pressure problem. I decided to deal with it later since the trans quit. 96,000 miles.

POS car.

2002 Silver Limited. 129,000 miles. We bought it in October of 2004 with 45K miles. It's starting to have some issues, had to replace the computer for around $800. Had to replace thermostat and some hoses and have multiple flushes of the cooling system. Just had the tranny rebuilt for $1800 only to find that it could have waited, because it didn't solve the problem, the real problem is something with the cruise control or wiring to it. It's been a good car, I'd like to keep it, especially since I still have a year of payments left and now I've put more money into it.

What are the symptoms?

I parked our PT. It is cheaper for me for right now to buy a $1000 car then it is to find the time AND money to fix the PT. So I have a couple years of $400 a month to pay on a car that can't move.

I posted a new thread describing the symptoms, but I'll do it here too.

At random moments, and sometimes several times in a row, but usually when accelerating, but sometimes when at cruising speed, the engine seems to lose power and the speedometer needle drops quickly down to like 20 mph. It happens quickly and then goes back to normal. When it does this, the cruise control light comes on next to the odometer. The light stays on for a bit and then go off on it's own, sometimes longer, usually just flashes once when the weird power loss happens.

53k - I've had it since January this year, only things I've done: wiper blades, plugs, wires, new battery (just last Saturday) and replaced the air-box with a cold-air intake. I plan to add daylight running lights - very surprised it didn't have them. I also want to find a way to drop the drivers seat a little, it's all the way down and still too high, and I'm only 5'6"...

I know how you feel. My first Cruiser was a 2004 Limited turbo and I felt that I sat up too high. I'm 5'6", too. I now have a 2005 GT and the seat height is much better. The seats in the limited are much more firm, the GT is a more plush bucket and you sink down a little further. BTW, I am referring to leather seats.

My GT has 45k miles on it. I bought it in March 09 w/39k on it. No issues, yet other than two pre-existing dented rims and a clicking in the steering wheel.
