I don't want to cream him...I will gently pass him...LOLMy first engine had what we think was an oil pump failure. I was on the highway listening to "I can't drive 55" by Sammy Hagar (no kidding). The oil light flashed and I couldn't pull over fast enough. Top end was gone. Debbie

Mine is now at 122000 and I tend to add 1100 km perweek ( unless it isn't drivable like the last two weeks with the spring problem). Still happy with the car, just have to keep learning new things when things break, overall it has still been pretty reliable for me considering the high milage I put on, and the fact that I bought it used so have no idea how it was cared for the first 64000 km of its life.

Our 06 CDI just passed 110,000 km this week. So far no major issues other than the air bag light which we are waiting to get diagnosed.

My 2005 pulse just passed 48K and 2006 Angelas Green style is right around 30K. Most boring cars we have ever owned for maintenance. I put new rears on the pulse this year. Thought I should do something nice for it. By now my last pontiac would have cost 5000 bucks in mass air flow sensors, CV boots and front rotors....replaced like clockwork once per year.

OMG! I got a call from a new smart owner in Chatam yesterday. He had just bought a 2006 Pulse from Toronto. His battery light was on and he wondered if I could check it for him.

Now hold your hats because when I asked how many k's were on the car his answer was 381,000 kms!!!!!

That was confirmed today in the shop....381,908kms, will be over 382,000 on his drive home.

It turned out he needed an altenator and it just so happened that I had a refurbished one available.

It looked like the prevois owner was a club member here as evidenced by the Profit 1 mudflaps, the axle caps, tinting and painted out rear windows (coupe).

I saw some theft protection stickers on the car and I beleive that the St Catherine dealer sold them.

I wonder whose smart this was????

and yes Mike, I entered the vin to the database :D

Sweet, that blows Duck's less than 290,000 out of the water and around the block a couple of times, eh?

382K! Any idea if it is the original engine? Did you tell him about CSC and the mileage list which he is now entitled to top billing on?

Any chance an Autel MaxiTrip or some other knock-off was used on that 380k car which sent it on an odometer road trip? Just curious. But I would think the new owner would have been told if the kms were NOT actually that high.

a 2006 Pulse from Toronto.

381,000 kms!!!!!

Today I was at MB London and had the service rep run the VIN #. Seems to be legit and there have been no major repairs. No engine replacement done at a MB dealer.

There is the chance that a scan gauge somehow added kms. However that would be to no ones benefit.

The dealers are not allowed to give out the name of the original owner.

381K and his first alternator? Next we'll find out the a/c is working and we'll know it's a hoax.I'm at 59K and M-B has not quite figured out why my lights are flickering. I sure hope it's not the alternator.

I could believe it with a long regular highway commute. Highway miles are really easy on a car. The problem with the alternators is seizing with rust of the rotor/stator clearance from not driving. AC... Dunno about that, but not sure it would fall into the "major repair" category. Probably an alternator or starter wouldn't either.There was that German CDI retired at 550K or so, again a long highway commute.

It sounds like a blown regulator, so an alternator RE/RE would be needed, sadly.

Not impossible. My G2 has 225,000 kms on the original altenator.

I agree with 'Grampa' Glenn. My 22 year old Honda Civic has over 490,000 kms on it, and other than an exhaust system (only part of it), batteries, tires and regular oil & filter changes, everything on the car is original ..... including the alternator and a/c (which has never been recharged or in need of repairs).
