Getting CLOSE to 100K miles….

Hi,

My 1995 D90 is at about 99,500 miles.

Just wondering - when I hit 100,000 miles, is there going to be some sort of dummy light or check engine light that goes on?

Or do I just keep on rolling, trouble free

early indications are that the lighting sequence has started by initiating the fail emissions test protocol ...

Speedos on 93-95 tend to stop ticking over miles at 100k. Be prepared to crack it open and give it a nudge if that happens.

This is probably a hoax but I once read that it's a good idea to drive slowly over the 100k mark with Land Rover speedos, particularly those with 7 digits (6 for miles, 1 for tenths) like you find in the Discovery I.

mine just kept on ticking - the serve engine light went on at 105k or so - 5 minute reset (service had already been done)
keep on going.

Made it!

Hey everyone,

I can not believe how long it has taken me to send this update (looking at the date of my first post and the miles). We had some construction done on our house, that forced me to park the Defender at my parents. I barely drove it during that time.

But now it is BACK in my driveway - and I am driving it again.

I went over 100K last weekend! I had my 8 and 6 year old sons in the car. I told them how special it was to see a car 'roll' over 100k (cause all the new odometers are digital). They loved seeing it happen, and I don't think they will ever forget it! Lots of cheering for FENDER!

Anyway - fun time - no crazy warning lights appeared or anything.

I am the original owner, and 100k miles and 20 years later I still LOVE the truck!

The odometer on my classic got stuck halfway between 99999 and 100000. And started making a clicking noise too. Had to take apart the dash at Newman's place.
