I had a 2.5L in a late 80's Buick that ran to 160,000 miles before the tranny started to hurl, and I drove the crap out of that thing. Never burned any oil.G6~Mike said:Yeah but how long/hard before you start to burn oil or have tranny slip.... etc.
Thats far from true. The last 2 cars my dad had he drove to 250,000 miles with no drivetrain issues. Granted they were all highway miles. I'm sure he would still be driving the 2nd one had it not been stolen from the GM parking lot!S8ER99 said:Cars are only designed to last to 100,000 miles (if that). Do you think if they built a car that last forever they could possibly keep making money and increasing profits every year? They would put themselves out of business. Thats why you can buy aftermarket parts that last 100x longer than the parts on your new 40 or 50 thousand dollar car.
