08 TL - 47K. no major repairs.

My only concern is I'm starting to get A LOT of rattles here and there. It's pretty annoying that a luxury car would have so many little rattles.

It seems you remember my posts about my issue with the dealer not diagnosing the ticking noise of the TB tensioner even though I told them prior to the timing belt service. I think some of us know way to much about each other's cars. They actually waived a majority of the labor charges. I think they charged me just 1.5 hr of labor rather than 9, or something like that.

I've had my 2004 Base Auto since it had 79k, and she's at 176k now. Things I've done: Regular oil changes, brake pads, one set of rotors, all motor mounts, one front sway bar link broke, timing belt (and related other parts) at 125k, and one rebuilt transmission (went out at 160k). Before the transmission rebuild, I had done the 3x3 done about every 30k miles or so. I drive very hard, all the time, and I'm very impressed with the motor. Still runs pretty damn close to the way it did when I bought it! Truthfully, I can't believe the poor transmission made it to 160k the way I drive. All in all, I'm happy with my purchase. I've read every thread about every problem and I guess I just got real lucky with this car.

just hit 161k....bought it with 42k a little over 3 1/2 yrs ago. still runs awesome. 100 out of my 106 mile commute is highway. I've only had to do regular maintenance, battery, T belt, Brakes (@ 130k), and a couple of sets of tires.

just bought an 06 w/ Navi 6MT and just turned 76k. Got it serviced and just found out its got a new transmission that barely had any fluid in it.

According to the car fax it looked serviced pretty good, but should of brought it in to a mechanic first. Hoping it keeps chugging for at least another 75k! My goal is to get at least 150k on the odometer.

267k and it's a 5AT. Awesome!! Do you know if it is the original trans? How many miles were on the car when you got it?

I bought the car brand new and it has the original engine and transmission, when I bought the car it had 12 miles on it. I've changed the transmission fluid every 30,000 miles and oil every 5000 miles. It has been a very good car to me. Only problem I'm having is with my drivers side headlight, the high beam does not work.

This is very encouraging! What transmission fluid have you been using? Have you ever changed the pressure switches?

I've been doing the 3x drain and fill with ATF Z1 up until 210,000 miles and since then I've been using the new DW-1 fluid. I have never replaced the pressure switches, I'm thinking that with my frequent transmission maintenance it's still working fine.

As far as the engine oil, I'm using a premium conventional Mobil 5000 with Mobil 1 oil filter. The car still to this day burns no oil, leaks nothing and is mechanically sound!

I change all fluids annually and some people call me crazy...but seeing your awesome numbers are a solid reminder why I perform such preventative insanity.

Well done, dude!!!

Thanks! Your regular fluid changes, especially your 3x3 every 30k obviously paid off. I'm am encouraged to keep on trucking with my TL as I really see no need to replace it aside from the fear of transmission problems.
