316,000km (196k mi) or so... it runs. It runs well.


Everything else is considerably worse for wear, but eh, 15 years and that much mileage does that.

132, 000 miles on my 89. Mechanically, it'* great. Leaks a little oil from the pan gasket, and I've just replaced the ICM & Coils. Other bigger jobs that have been done is a rebuilt tranny (before I got the car) and repair of damaged wires and seized doors. All the gagetry works fine, paint is in horrible shape though. I expect this car to last more many years to come.

ive got around 127000 and the main problems I have are with my front axels and brakes. I know the previous owner put about $2000 into the brakes, and they still make alot of noises.

Over 130k miles.

No major problems at all so far. Tranny acts weird sometimes, but the car has been modded since it was basically new, and it has had a beating, so the tranny has held up exceptionally well. The only things we have ever had to fix on it (other than normal maintenance like oil change, tranny flush, brakes, tires, etc..) are the two rear windows wouldn't stay rolled up, so we put screws below them to hold them up. We had to replace the LIM gasket at around 70k. At 99k we had the bubbling hood fixed as well. Other than that, we've had no problems with it. The only thing I can think of thats really broken at all is 2 of the 3 backlight bulbs for the radio are burnt out.

Probably the most reliable car we've ever had.
