It’s not about “pleasing”, it’s about putting that mileage in perspective given the way those miles were compiled.Colt - You certainly are tough to please.
They fall apart at 175k because we torture them for a dozen years and more to cover those miles, through multiple seasons of hot and cold weather, road salt, and plenty of stop and go in-city driving.Our cars tend to fall apart at around 175K miles that we feel we need to replace them before they leave us stranded and in danger on a cold night.
Most people with that many miles would be in their 20th year of ownership. Nowadays it's rare for people to hold onto cars that long. After about 15 years of torture, you start seeing leaking gaskets, loss of oil, and early signs of engine and transmission issues. But if more people did those miles in 6 years like MGMSEQUINOX, you'd see many more claims because I think a LOT of cars could do it in that shorter period of time.Let's compare apples to apples how many small SUVs driver can claim that many miles without engine or tranny replacement under any condition ? So kudos to mgmsequinox for maintaining his car well.

It is comply awesome since it is 2012. We have 2012 terrain at 98k miles 2.4l and it was at the dealer yesterday for a noise. Your 2 or 3 qts I find not 'acceptable' but if it were me I would just drive it and probably not do anything unless an issue arose. Luckily --- I do not add any oil between changes. I run full synthetic and change anywhere between 5k and 7.5k interval. Do you synthetic oil. Dealer says my noise is wheel bearings.... it's not bad now but will eventually fix. Good luck to you and hope you hit 500k!I am going to bring this thread back for one reason.........YES on Thursday it was 6 years 6 months and a day old.......AND TURNED 300,000still no motor work od tranny work.uses 2 or 3 quarts of oil in 5000 miles.starting to get the dreaded 2097 code........converter not efficient....guess I cant complain see picture
Try going with Fenton V8 LEDs. They're in the middle as far as cost of LED headlamps go, but, they will last a very, very, very long time....The nox likes wheel bearings, all struts and ball joints are original.rear is on third set of wheel bearing and the front I think is on the fourth.all the bearings did not fail.........doing a major at like 200k I did rotors and brakes and I did the wheel bearing while I was in there.since it is fwd the rear bearings have no axle in them and that makes it a piece of cake.in an hour........take off tire, remove caliper bracket, remove rotor, remove abs sensor, remove 4 bolts and hub is out.install new hub, connect abs sensor, install rotor, caliper bracket, caliper, wheel and go for a ride .it really likes headlight bulbs............if you ever read the package on bulbs it says they last like 300 hours.well I drive this car about 25 hours a week so in 3 months I am at the life expectancy of the bulbs because anytime the car runs the drl's are on and the drl's are the low beams.
Hi! This is GM. That oil usage is fine. And would you be interested in testifying on our behalf in exchange for a “private” SCA extending your warranty to 10 years, 120,000 miles? LOL!mine is now at 333,000a couple more miles to be 1/3 of a millionuses a quart about every 500 miles nowI think it is getting tired
