That's incredible. What's more incredible is that you have replaced a lot less stuff than me. Definitely post some pictures.

^ it goes without saying if its mostly highway it's less strenuous On the car than say mine, where its a primarily city car with more "abuse" due to shotty roads and such. More wear on suspension components

Cograts I'm at 222k since ill either drive this car 450 miles a week or not at all. Since new I don't think I could name everything I've replaced. My car is due for a timing belt and valve adjustment but eh, mechanic said I can run the belt another 20k and said the valves are fine they will just tick a bit

What a great car! Drive it about 170 miles R/T to work, 5 days a week. Always runs good, and mileage between 28 and 29 mpg.
pkeys1280, Can you hear us? Please, post some pictures of her.

Pkeys that's very encouraging, very few people on here are the original owner of their car

1. Replaced the Catalytic Converter. The exhaust no longer rattles, but there is still a rattle in the front end - possibly coming from the strut mounts. Arghhh...

2. Replaced Rear Rotors and Pads. The bottom slider pins were seized up and were causing uneven wear on both sides. The pads had a lot of life left, but everything was heavily corroded and squealed during braking. All lubed up and moving freely - no more noise in the back!

There is a separate thread on here with the part numbers. I'll try to find it for you, as it recently resurfaced.

update: Okay, here you go

Only a Lexus could have the mileage of a trip to the moon and back and still be delivering the goods.

2001 es300 here and just rolled over the 234, 000 mark! Has some issues along the way and one recently where i thought the engine was shot due to oil sludge stopping oil pressure. By a miracle, I managed to save it and still going as strong as the first day I bought it at 97, 000 back in 2007. I love this car!
