So, my 02 SEL with the 24V 3.0L just rolled over 1/4 million miles yesterday. Original engine and trans. These are mostly city miles. I got the car a couple of years ago from the widow of a life long friend of mine. He delivered parts for a local parts house in it, as well as a daily driver. this is just proof that if you keep up with the regular scheduled maintenance, a vehicle can last a very long time. Looking into the oil fill hole, the engine is still clean inside. I'm hoping that it will last at lest another 225,000 miles. The car is fully loaded (leather, adj pedals, side air bags, Mach stereo system with cassette and 6 disc CD in the floor shifted console, 6 way power passenger seat as well as a power sunroof and automatic climate control). Not bad for a $400 car.
