I have 265,000 on a '99 Suburban....still strong as ever. But let's face it. If you are over 200,000 you got your moneys worth! If mine had a better body I'd put another in if this one went. But it's value is less now then a new engine would cost.

Also depends on how well it's been taken care of. Frequent, regular oil changes are the most important thing. Followed by driving habits. If a vehicle has been beaten on that puts a lot of wear on the engine. My '03 S-10 Pick Up has 287,000 miles on the original engine and transmission. It was a delivery truck at my job. When they retired it in 2011 it had 264,000 miles on it. The truck is not my daily driver or only means of transportation but it always gets me where I want to go. The inside of the bed is kinda beat up but the rest of the truck looks pretty good. It uses maybe a half quart of oil in between oil changes and doesn't smoke or tap and returns about 20 MPG around town. My Niece's Husband had a '98 Acura which he bought new and just replaced it last month. It had about 225,000 miles on it. When it hit the 200,000 mile mark it was getting tired. It smoked some and the gas mileage had dropped off. That was another one that had received good care it's whole life. HTH. - Jim

I should have said I am a stickler for regular vehicle servicing. That's how come they last so long. Also have a 2000 Silverado, 172,000 miles, and an '89 Caprice with 175,000 on it. My record was 367,000 on a 80 Pontiac Bonneville diesel.
