Well let me chime in I guess. Not my trucks but they are the parts runner trucks at work. 4 2001 F150's with the 4.2 V6 and auto trans. Put in service new in 2001 and just starting to retire them. Mileage varies from 400k to 425k on original engines and trannys. All received 5k oil changes on MC bulk 5W20 and motorcraft filters. Transmissions serviced every 30k with MC atf. These things run great and use NO oil! 400k+ and they were not driven easy. Yeah and the new prez says domestics dont build good vehicles.

My 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 291,000 First 200,000 miles. Trop Artic 10W30 Fram Extra Guard at 2000 miles. Last 91,000-- Maxlife blend 10W30 Fram Extra Guard at 3000 Miles. This is currently my plow truck, hunting rig, and wood hauler. I'd drive it anywhere tomorrow. Motor has since new used some oil. Still on original transmission. Fluid has never been changed. My uncle was a Chrysler tech and told me to never change my transmission fluid as in his experience that is when people has issues with them. It was good advice as most 46RH transmissions [censored] out at about 100,000 miles. The tranny is just now starting to get weak and hang second gear a little, But has been bulletproof so far. I'm looking into a rebuild. My 2007 Ram I just bought about a month ago. Accoring to the records that came with the truck it was changes at around 6000 with Mobil 1 5w20 and a Mopar filter. It still runs like a new truck. It piled up miles with a 200 mile per day commute.

2001 Nissan Maxima SE 5-speed (purchased new) 310,000 miles All miles on full synth 5w30...Syntec in the beginning...now Valvoline MaxLife Full Synth for the past year or so. 3k-8k oci. Fram and FramXG filters. Last two changes have had a K&N filter and a PureOne filter, thanks to an Advance Auto Parts bundle. This has been the family hauler since late 2001. We are in central Indiana, and it has made long-distance trips to Florida, Colorado, and Tennessee (twice.) It does a daily commute of 120 miles minimum (round trip). Still runs strong. Starting to use a little bit of oil. But nothing worrisome. Our previous family hauler was a '91 Maxima SE. Sold it when it had 315,000 miles on it. Gotta love those Nissan V6's.

I'm about to roll over to 200K, does that count? LOL 199525 at the moment. Bulk/quickie places for the first 180K or so, then I got it and have fed it a diet of MaxLife 10w-40 which has stopped a rear main seal leak.

244k miles on '97 e320 with m104 inline-6 with original head gasket & timing cover gasket (rare for this engine). Generally changed at 7500 mile OCI, but was run several times (inadvertently) up to and beyond 10k, and a couple times up to 14k. Mobil 1 10w30 up to 100k Mobil 1 15w50 from 100k-235k Mobil 1 10w40 HM from 235k-??? Engine still runs perfectly, is absolutely spotless under the valve cover, and has never required ANY oil between changes. Was leaving 2-3 drops per night with the 15w50...now leaves maybe one drop after a few days of being parked on the 10w40 HM. I like playing with different oils in my other vehicles, but this car will never see any oil other than Mobil 1.

I traded in my 1994 Ranger v-6 with 205K on the clock. Ran great leaked a little at the main seal, but nothing major. I used motorcraft filters and havoline 5w-30 dino. I bought with 100K so I ran it pretty hard towing dirt bikes and lawnmowers etc. I now have a 1999 Tacoma 4 cyl with 95K on it.

My 200k+ miler is dead and gone after a accident but it hasn't been gone long enough to remove it from my memory. 1999 VW Golf TDI (221,051 miles) Oil changed per factory recommendation of 10,000 mile intervals. Oil used: Mobil Delvac-1 5W-40 Filter used: Mahle-Knecht or Mann-Hummel. Car performed flawlessly. It was on the original clutch, alternator and turbocharger. Nearly 200k+ miler (190,000): 1997 Nissan 2WD Pickup. Fed a steady diet of whatever the cheap rat bastid previous two owners were willing to part with. This vehicle is NOT aging gracefully. It's my yard truck and hauls lawn trash and gets the occasional trip to the North Georgia mountains when I feel like going trail riding in it. It isn't much to look at but it does have personality. I like it.
