1. My father-in-law has over 200k on his 2006 Equiniox- all original with no rebuilds.

There are probably a lot of factors that go into making a car last that long. Good manufacturing from the beginning with no serious defects. Getting preventative maintenance done in a timely manner. Driving it gingerly. A lot of cruising on the highway. Luck.

2. maintenance is number one

 

I'm religious about oil and trans fluid changes......

This thing has the performance software...K@M filter...high flow fuel pump...better injectors....high output coils.......200k miles and this v6 will still hang with most stock v8's.

Driving right is the other key.I watch my mpg register with a passion and try to squeeze every ounce out of it.I reset the register every week or so and pay attention to it.Driving like I have an ounce of common sense helps a bunch
