Thumbs up 100,000 mile club - Welcome

Yesterday November 6 2012 my green girl turned the 100k. She took it with a grin and was looking good, running well. She was a bit bitchy as we did the roll over while driving on the 101 freeway in heavy traffic and not on dirt (another promise broken) AND I missed the exact click over for a photo - I refuse to touch the phone while driving. Figure that will cost me a few tanks of high grade gas, oil and a few other niceties.

Looking back, she has averaged 5,555.556 miles a year. I honestly do not know if that is a good thing or a bad thing. All I know is I look forward to the next 100,000!

Thought to start a 100K club thread as I did not see one. If missed, we can roll these together.

Good idea. I hit 100k about 18 months ago. I have a photo somewhere when it was at 99999. She still drives as strong as when I picked her up with 30k. No leaks or idiot lights so far. Stock radio sucks. Won't work when it is humid or raining. Weird.

I'm closing in on 100k on both D's (well technically the 100k equivalent in kilometers on one...so I guess I better watch out for the 160,000 mark?). Just clicked 100k on another old classic car I own as well recently too.

Will have the camera ready for these upcoming two.

106,000 97 d90. And she sound wonderful. Every time I pull up to smog her they say she is going to fail. And then they eat their words when her numbers are the lowest they've seen all week. Oh. Then they starts making excuses like well if I could dyno her it would be more accurate.
Anyway running like a fine watch.

I love the Smog test. Every time having to go to the "special" place and passing with flying colors.
Miss the MI days... get a truck onto the road and the attitude is once on the road, always on the road.

Have a 04 Rangie in the shop with 294K! Runs and drives really well, even has good paint and an excellent interior!

WOW!

That has to be a record for a new style RR.

Is it still on its original transmission?

My D90 is at 133k or so. It had 98k when I bought it the first time about ten years ago.

Ron, first time I've seen this Rover, and the shop that brought it to me that has been servicing it for the last 8 years, said it's often for reactive attention than proactive!
