I own a 2000 chevy caviler. It still runs fine and has been reliable. I've had SOME work done on it but no chronic problems.
The water pump replaced. New brakes. New head gasket. But not bad for a 12 year old car..
Ford Ranger, new, 1991, 2.3L engine, 225,000, no issues. As reliable as anything else. Blew 2 alternators and a water pump. Had the oil pump get glitchy and replaced it. Put in a radiator, was leaking just a little. All easy fixes.<br />
Mustang went 250,000.<br />
BMW no. 1 went 390,000<br />
BMW no. 2 300,000<br />
both running when I sold them.<br />
Current BMW 540i has 125,000 miles, just maintenance, perfect condition & running, no issues at all.<br />
Saab 95 blew an ignition coil at 125,000. BIggest thing so far.
Been good to me so far
Never had anything else, and no real problems
About 8-10 years
