I just passed 170K when I pulled up to get gas a couple months ago and snapped a picture with my phone. Right now I have 172K.

On the body at least, the engine only has about 86K or something 'round there.

42,000 miles on my 05 GXP. Driven by an older gentleman who only drives it on Sundays at a very conservative rate of speed. But I have the 4600.

Right, and light speend with spray for that matter.LOL Yeah bro the 3800 is like one of the most die hard motors America has ever made. As far as longevity goes I'd compare it to a Honda. But in longevity ONLY. It COMPLETELY pisses all over that car in all other aspects.LOL and oh yeah since every one else posted their mileage....2000 SSEi just creepin up on 120,000.

My '89 SE has all of 49,600 miles on it. My dad had a 1990 LeSabre that he ran up to 177k. He would probably still be driving it if he hadn't been T-boned by a driver that ran a red light. But...He bought a 1988 Olds 98 Brougham with 128K on it. It runs just as good at my 49K Bonne. I guess we love those 3800'*. They really are one hell of an engine!
