Re: Will an Equinox go 300 thousand miles ???
Did 120K+ on my 2010 2.4 Terrain. Was getting a little uncomfortable as I do frequent trips of 400 miles or more, each way. I never abused the vehicle, did oil changes at 3k mile intervals, had timing chain repair done, but just didn't want to be on the side of the road waiting for AAA.
OTOH, had a 78 Mercedes diesel that saw 210K miles while I had it. Never had any engine work done and ran as good when I sold it as when I bought it 90K miles earlier. Kept service up to date on it too and always ran a fuel filter/water separator to sort out occasional bad fuel. I still see them on the road and am told they used that platform in Germany as taxis with easy 500K miles before any engine work.
I agree with Buggsy that virtually any vehicle can run 300K miles these days. The question is how much $ you have to put in it to get there. Major engine repair/replacement, transmission repair/replacements, major A/C jobs, electronics, can quickly add up to more than the cars value. That's when I draw the line and start the "quest" for something else in the driveway. But yep---you can get there if you want.
