    216K miles and quiet and strong. Only issue lately is there's a strong odor of fuel on start up. Exhaust smells more potent than usual.

    BTW, less than 2 years I can apply for Classic license plate in PA, feels even better as the original owner.

    Right now I have 224K. With WOT from 0-105 mph, no problems at all and no burning oil (not a drop knock on wood)
    I'm hoping to go over 300K with my Amsoil bypass.

    I have just over 170,000 km on mine. So a hair over 100,000 miles. Not much on the grand scale. Burns no oil and runs great nearly half the time..... The engine and drivetrain are solid. Used synthetics since I got it with 20,000km on the clock.

    I have a 2006 TB EXT LS I bought it around 2009.. It had 34,000 on it, I put 5,000 miles on it going on a trip of a lifetime went from KY, Memphis TN, ARk, down through Oklahoma Texas,New Mexico, Arizona,Grand Canyon,Colorado,YellowStone...Did this trip in 6 days wow.... Now 6 years later its paid for and now has just over 84,000 miles on it... I have had oxygen censor replaced, something that controls the heater and Ac blower module replaced, I have replaced the battery and have had the recall of driver-side door window module replaced.I have cleaned throttle body once... Just have replaced 16" stock wheels and tires with 17" stock tires and wheels of from a 04 tb ext ltz...I am on a fixed income from a work accident that caused me to have to go on disability for back that had l5-S1 fused twice and have had stimulator put in.. And back to truck now I just had Transmission Fluid replaced with one qt of TransX added that conditions the Transmission.. I have had added a brake control to TB because am hoping to pull a 2002 Gulfstream Amerilite with it.. It came with tow package everything was wired, but just purchased a EZ2 Equalizer hitch for trailer with built in sway control...

    On the 2006 TB EXT LS, I meant to tell you all that I also just replace Serpentine belt, and am now hearing it make a little noise when I first start vehicle after it runs a while it stops.. Do you all have any suggestions about this as to how to make it stop..... Thanks kyblazer06

    I have 04 rainier 6cyl awd. With 212300 miles. Only thing I've replaced was exhaust manifold rear suspension conversion air-springs. And front struts and a thermostat.

    Still running strong except I think my alternator is going bad

    Sounds about right. Soon 20-30k or so you'll have the pleasure of ball joints.

    I did them as a preventive measure 5k miles ago. Quite easy with air tools.

    I've been averaging adding 5k a year. I try not to take her very far...just in town driving, which kills my gas mileage.

    My wife's 2006 Envoy SLT has just over 18,000 miles; we bought it in January of this year. Looking forward to many years of enjoyment with that creampuff.

    I thought about saying "years of enjoyment IN that creampuff", but I didn't want to give people too much to work with.
