Up to 57k now! Still going pretty well. The small things keep having issues. Now that the factory warranty is finished I will see how it does over the next year or so.

Mine is already over 6 years old, and should reach 40K (miles) by June 30
(We only have 30 days in June up here.)

No problems at all since the 4 yr. warranty ended.
What they call a purple patch, I believe.

Dang! Somebody stole the 31st!

I was just too lazy to look at the calender I never could remember which months had 30 or 31 days.

I thought I had the lowest mileage around until I saw that.

I am looking forward to seeing 2,500 miles sometime soon. Just for kicks, I wish the 15K between oil changes was really possible since that would be once every 5 years or so.

09/2004 3.0i Sport - now at 46,327 miles. Auto box replaced at 42,000 odd miles

Not used too much now due to a company car (Toyota Prius ) and cost of Petrol in the uk - hence the Prius as a company car

72k now. Changed front and rear diff oil, transfer case oil and air/cabin filters. Slight hesitation on shifting (infamous AT issue) now completely gone. Smooth roads ahead!
