Default 200,000 Miles

My 1998 LS 400 finally went over 200,000 miles! I know these cars can do it but it is still fun seeing my car do it, so now on to 300,000.

My old 97 LS 400 now belongs to my daughter and son in law. It currently has 180,000 miles on it and runs, drives and looks as good as my 06 LS 430. Are these awesome cars or what!

Congrats! Our '97 is a few K behind yours, should hit the 200K mark around October-November.

I wonder what happens if you max out the six digit digital odometer at 999,999 miles, and then drive 1 more mile.

You think it would reset back to Zero?

Let's find out!

Excellent. My 1990 is at 197,xxx. It's a garage queen, so another year or so for the magic 200.

Default 200k

I'm at 216k. I've had my 2004 since 2010 (86k miles and 2nd owner).

Outside of one of the airbags crapping out last year (which allowed me to lift it with the wife's permission), nothing major has gone wrong. By major, I mean a repair that is abnormal. Original drive train. Synthetic oil every 10k w/ air filter, brakes every 60k or so, a couple sets of tires, and the rest has been great.

1995, just crossed 196k last week, and I really enjoy just driving around for the hell of it so ill be hitting the 200k mark this spring. had 123k when I got it a few years ago. haven't had a major problem with it at all. the valve cover gaskets leak a little, muffler is a little loud, and it pisses power steering fluid like they all do it seems, but its always been 100% reliable.

however,

im in florida. I bought the car here, but its a rust belt car. it spent the first 15 years of its life up north and im starting to see a lot of rust on the undercarriage on it. weird cause its showed up just in the last year. idk. my car body is perfect and it has paint that looks new, so id like to keep the rust from spreading. any advice how to stop it before it becomes noticeable?
