a few months ago my drivers seat broke, it would not stay up anymore, so i went to my local junkyard and found a white 96 SE with my exact same interior (IN BETTER CONDITION!!!), so i removed the drivers seat and looked at the odometer before i left and it read 326,000 miles!!!!!!! and what was astounding about this all was that the car looked amazing, it had arizona plates

BTW, i only paid $20 for a perfect drivers seat

this particular junkyard has a lot of bonnes over the 200,000 mark

L27 UIM'* are not an issue. It'* L36 UIM'* starting in 95.

An L27 should be capable of WELL over 300k if properly cared for on the OEM UIM.
