I just past the 300,000 mile mark on my '93 Dodge Dakota. Engine is getting weak, exterior still looks good. I am driving it until it is too expensive to fix like replacing the engine. Just keeping up with the routine maintenances.

Most of the used trucks I buy have about that many miles on them!

Congrats on the "milestone". Pun intended. If you or anyone needs a rebuilt engine, I know of a place in Burnsville that really impressed me when I had my engine replaced with one of theirs. It came with a warranty and cost less than $1,000.00 when everyone else I consulted wanted between $1,200-$2,000.00 without a warranty. I don't work for them, just a very pleased customer!

bucketmouth64, Good for you! My 1990 Dodge D-150 just passed the 200,000 mile mark. Like you, I've just given it good routine maintenance. That good old 318CD still doesn't take a drop of oil in 3,000 miles and the suspension is still as tight as the day I drove it off the lot. Once had an old mechanic tell me"Grease is cheaper than iron. Grease it every time you change the oil!" So I did and this August I will have owned this truck for 15 years.

Got a '93 Bonneville with 233,000 on it. She doesn't burn a drop of oil!

One of these days, she'll quit and I'll be forced into buying a new car, but until that happens, it is too cheap to give her up!

This has been the best car for me yet. I haven't got $1,000 maintenance into it since I bought it in '97
