Milestone 300k!

I thought you guys would appreciate this. My 97 200sx just hit 300,000 miles the other day.

It has been my daily driver for the last 6 years. I put roughly 130 miles a day, 6 days a week on it commuting. I bought it with around 100k on the clock. I think i paid $2200.

Its got its quirks, but for the most part it has been a worry free/dependable car. I cant ask for more out of this car, ive gotten my moneys worth twice over.

There she is after a bath many, many moons ago. The hood clearcoat is now all but gone, rust over both rear quarters bad, rust/rot in the pass door well, rear bumper sag......

But the most important thing is that i tap the key and it starts right up, and still gets around 30+mpg (1.6l 5 speed).

Nice. I hope to reach that goal soon! What have you done to it outside of expected maintenance? I've gone 266K and the engine and auto trans have not been touched.

Edit: Yes, this place is dead. NOTHING like it used to be.

Regular oil changes and thats about it.

Ofcourse tires, brakes, struts and stuff like that. Still running original 5 speed (probably factory tranny fluid...i never changed) and original exhaust!

Ive had to replace a few parts.....heater hoses, distributor, ac compressor, a few evap parts.

mines got 150k on it. unlike yours, mines already got an top overhaul, changed head gasket and valve seals,timing chains and tensioners, but its still noisy, maybe changing to thicker oil would help. hehe. well, congrats on your milestone!

Congratulations to you! Mine just reached near 200 K. It is my daily commuter, I run about 40 miles a day from home to work and work to home. Mine looks perfect, like from the showroom.
