2007 GT 3.9L hand-me-down with 215,000 miles and driving like a champ. Trans replaced 2 years ago. A small engine fire two months ago made me second guess this little convertible for a second. Power steering failed. I tried to troubleshoot and spilled fluid into the empty power steering reservoir and consequent plumbing that could not support it. Said fluid ended up on the exhaust system and caught fire. Burned some power steering plumbing in the process. Yet, I consider myself lucky as the car is fitted with the hydraulic system instead of the more tech-forward electric-response system, which draws the ire of many folk on this forum. Still, a little fire, quenched with the contents of my travel coffee mug, even if not a big deal for some old-timers, was my first car fire and slightly disturbing.

It is all on the original engine. I did have to get a transmission replaced near 300,000 MILES, not sure of the exact mileage of tranny work. It will get some TLC and off I go to 500,000 MILES.

That is just incredible! It is hard to believe, but damn... I'm guessing you follow a stricter than recommended maintenance schedule.

BTW... Just bought my 09 G6 3.5L Base with 140k on it and it runs flawlessly... Don't think the damned thing doesn't realize it isn't a race car! Bought it w/ warped rotors so I'm going to replace those (and pads) next week.

Who has the most miles, I'm at 57k on my 06 GTP.
259xxx on my 06 GT! I bought my "piggy" as I call her, 3 years ago, for $1800, and I'm her 2nd owner! I have since then thrown enough parts at her to have bought her 3 more times! (At least) 😂😱
Needless to say, I'm married to this car.

I reached 400,000 miles on my 2007 G6 GT this week! (May 6, 2020). I will be giving it a tune-up and transmission check and headed to 500,000!
How did you manage all those miles on one engine? Please pm me or something and let me in on your secret! I'm in process of dropping the 3rd engine in my 06 GT! Help!!!
