Highest mileage on your original g6 drivetrain??

How many miles does your gy have and what drivetrain is it? I'm currently sitting at 195000 miles with my 2005 and it has the 3.5 l A4 and I had my first drivetrain problem last week when my shift solenoid burnt up. I'm wondering if I should sell the car or not. I did regular maintaince and evendors flushed/changed trans fluid every 70 k but I'm not sure how long these transmissions and enines can hold up. ?. Any input

I have 180k on my G6 base with the 2.4L Ecotech and the poop 4 speed auto. Honestly since it's a GM and the 3.5 is pretty reliable it's the transmission that I would worry about the most. The engine properly maintained I believe would easily hit 300k. But I would recommend doing your fluid changes at 50k vs 70k just to be safe.

a trans cooler is always a good idea.

My 05 had 225k before I got rid or if still going pretty strong, but it did have a solenoid problem that was fixed at about 120k ish area maybe a little more like 140 can't remember but other then that it's been solid, I still see it around the area :P
