I bet I'll get 200k out of it easy.
I think I have resolved the problem I was having. I put the car in to an indie SAAB mechanic who is also good on L's. He replaced the plugs and the thermostat and said everything looks good. Fuel economy has improved and now running much smoother.

Default Re: How many miles are on your L?

Hearing these stories about 200K L-series makes me feel good. Bought mine new at end of 2002 model year. Have almost 104,000 miles on it. Only major repairs so far were a fuel pump a year ago and the BCM today. Can't believe the gas mileage on a car this size (I have the LW200 wagon), one time on a 300 mile trip with the cruise control set at about 60 I actually got almost 35 mpg! I commute 25 miles each way 5 days/week on mostly highway and still average about 25 or 26 mpg. Great car!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Check the service records... 100k is time for scheduled maintenance. People ditch a car to avoid a $1500 shop fee. Tax & title and plate on a new car is more than $1500... economics makes a used car a bargain even if you shell out for a new timing belt, waterpump, alternator, fuel pump, and BCM.

...
The dipstick for the 710 fluid says "ADD"...Where do you buy 710 fluid ?

2003 LW200, 114,000 miles- Fuel Pump at about 65K and the A/C climate control system is still annoying and has never worked as it should...otherwise I would certainly buy this vehicle again. Wish a domestic car maker would make a desirable wagon.

2000 LS1

Rolled passed the 206,000 mile mark and will hit 207,000 miles likely by next week sometime.

Based on what the engine looked like when it was taken apart to replace the timing chain (no damage to valves) around 6,000 miles ago I fully expect to reach the 300,000 mile mark - God willing - and beyond with this car.

The power band is still as good as the day I drove it off the dealer's lot more than a decade ago.

Mobile 1 synthetic + Chevron Techron fuel system cleaner = car's best friend.

The car still gets plenty of compliments as when it's cleaned up those polymer panels shine as good as new.

Best car I've ever.....and will likely ever.....own.

136K on my 2001 LW300. Original owner.

Did major stuff around 93K when water pump went out. . .so replaced timing chain.

New BCM around 50K. . .and it had not worked properly from the get-go, so if I'd had known that it was supposed to lock the doors, I'd have gotten a new one.

Other than that, alternator a bit over 100K also the 100K tune-up and tranny fluid change.

Right now dealing with some engine missing issues, trying to eliminate causes one by one.

But happy with the car.

Think there is another thread about mileage, but I will contribute to this one. I have 2 Red 2000 LS2s 3.0, One is my work car, 241K, bought it with 37.5K on it. When a dealer gave me a story that the car was toast, found another with 76K on it. So now I have two. Newer one is cushier, leather, heated seats, wing. Hope to have that one for a long time. Love my cars. Wish I could upload a photo, but the transfer fails.

My L200 clocked 132xxx before the timing chain broke. I got a new engine with about 40k on it and I've driven a year on it in december 2010, so it put on about 10k.

2000 LS1

Just rolled past 208,000 miles today.

She goes in for her 200,000 mile service (rad flush and fill, tune up and transmission tune up) this week.

The only L I've seen with higher mileage (with the 2.2 EcoTech 4-banger) is on cars.com, where a non-profit is selling an L donated to the organization with 256,000 miles on it.
