Need 200 + miles and pics ... Prove this guy wrong. :)

(Dint know where to really put this) Hear is the run down. My Fiancee is look for a Cav. Her pervious car was a Cav. I tried mass persuation but she wouldnt budge for a Nissan, even if I offered to pay for it. We were at a dealer looking at a few Cav's she liked. We got into few diffrent conversations with a sales man. Really cool guy but one thing ticked me is the conversation about our type of cars (B13,B14,1.6,2.0). We got into reliability. He dint beleave me when I said that these engines got past 200,000 miles plus, some over 300 as daily beaters. So we actually got into an all out argument. It was kind speaking to him up till this point. He simply said if its true prove him wrong. I said fine. This is were I need the help. I did plenty of searching, but found wear fellow Nissan enthusiast stated there miles without pictures. Allthough to me there word is as dependable as there car, I need photo proof of the odometer for this one, if posible a simple statment of how many miles are yours, and if you beat on it or not. This man put down one of the best cars ever built, and I wont let it go unjustified.

Any help is greatly apreciated. With your help Im really looking forward to going back to this guy at his dealership and proving him wrong. His worst statment was, "I have not seen a Cav over 170,000 let along any other car that high, still runing good."

Im not sure how to post pic. So if someones got a good one for me and has the same trouble, just e-mail it to me at [email protected] with the subject of... "Nissan Miles"

Thank you for all your help. Phyroinstinct

There is also a thread in general. Right now my highest car is 112k and going strong. There is a thread in General > General that where people posted their highest mileage. You may want to ask in there as well.

Let us know how it goes.

Kind of off topic, but has anyone heard of the famous Subaru that ran for 500,000 and only needed an alternator replaced?

I only got one pic so far... And I wanna go back to him soon.motivational1 had sent me a nice shot, Im just waiting to get a few more before I go back. On the bright side, my Fiancee, momentarily considered Nissan. Hopefully if Im persuasive enough I can get her to want one. But she comes up to me the other night and says, "What about the Suzuki Aerio". Anyone have any info on the car. I went and tried one and stuff. It was ok, Not a Nissan though. SuperblkStalion that would be great if ya could get me a pic. I would appreciate it. Thanks, Phyro

Darn, if only 159,000 were enough to convince this guy.

Why in the world would your wife want a Cavalier? My sister has a 2003 and hates it.
