How many miles?

I was curious how many miles most of you have on your cars. When we were searching for our solstice(300 mile radius), the highest mileage car out of the 11 we found was 31k. Our solstice only has 26k which was the second highest we found, the rest all had 10k or less. I realize these cars aren't that old yet but I hope they go for quite a while without major incidents.

87k, only recall for the diff vent tube and the $17 evap purge solenoid. An awesomely reliable car.

If only my truck were that reliable....

That sounds good, i'm an old school mechanic, 60's muscle and mechanical diesels. This is the most advanced vehicle I've ever owned and it kind of scares me.

The 06 has 80k+ and I had an extended warranty that lasted to 72K.
The 07 has 32k and it will be ending the GM certified used car warranty next month.
No serious issues with either one, but I have had many numerous things taken care of through the years.
I will be finding out soon if they are going to turn into money pits or not.

Was a Pair-a-Sols!

06 Pure, 111230, delivered 2-14-06
07 Pure, 113071, delivered 3-30-11 deceased 9-6-12

I'm approaching 100k on mine. Had the recall done, of course, and recently had the thermostat and battery replaced. Going to attempt the 100K miles service (spark plugs). I would've already done it but never replaced plugs on a coil pack car before.

2007 GXP bought new 5 year ago about now. 14,900 miles. Just changed the battery this past week just in case. Never had one last this long.

107K plus. Water pump at around 70K (seems common). Other than that, solid as a rock.

If lovin' "ish" is wrong, I don't wanna be right.

Don't let them scare you disconnect and pull the coilpacks out of the way then remove & replace the plugs (AC Delco 41-108s for the GXP). Just make sure to work on a completely cold engine (like let it sit overnight) to prevent damage to the sparkplug threads.

Lots of miles this year

I put 10k on my 2007 Mysterious GXP this past year taking me to 23k miles since my son refuses to give me back my Vibe that was supposed to be the mileage-eater.

Just had a nagging check-engine light come on involving emissions (that I occasionally cleared via my mounted android tablet) that I'd assumed was just a sensor gone bad. The dealer replaced a large number of items (hunting and hoping IMHO) around the exhaust and replaced the catalytic converter then after a trip back...the sensor (go figure). Light's now off but it wasn't like I ever noticed it to be performance effecting.

Now if I can just stop people from dinging my car every time I take it out...
