Ok, just curious how many people have actual miles on their GS3/GS4. Some say that they can go 300k miles easily. But if that is the case, how many have made it there?

Mine 98 GS4 is only at 140,500 miles. I bought mine at 138800 miles or so.

My 94 Cadillac Fleetwood made it to 250k EASILY. My 90 Aerostar Van made it to 275k (given to us, already on 3rd trans.... but engine was solid and strong, body was GONE), my 91 Pontiac Bonneville went 270k before we gave it away, again, easily, not a single major problem, original trans and engine and drive axles. Never even popped a valve cover.

No doubt about the quality of the engine. Its the suspension that needs to be concerned

All repairable parts, ball joints, bushings, etc? Cheaper than engines....
