Damn the luck!

Actually, five years later, this is a good thread for revival. Many more miles on these cars now, so where are we at?

I have 104K on my LS3 SS. I bought it used in Nov of 2014 with 61K. Since then, I've changed the oil every 4-5K miles, changed the plugs, new tires, and that's about it. As far as I know, it's the factory installed clutch, and is still holding well. No leaks, no smoke, still runs smooth and strong. Valve train is a little more noisy, or it could be exhaust leak. But still solid thus far. Interior still looks almost new, no rattles, no squeaks.

120K miles on mine and still feeling strong. No unusual noises or shaking or anything of the sort. Just a clean purr, power is there when I need it... feels great for a 120k mile car...

I reckon it will last for a long time... I plan on going LS7 down the line.

A resurrected thread, but interesting. I owned my last car for 180K miles. My Camaro has been much more reliable so far so that number seems reasonable. Like another poster I suspect this may be the last car I own (I'm 63). I have instructed my kids that if they ever observe me driving under the speed limit to take away my keys.

63 ! 63 is the new 50. I'm 75 and still going strong. I've has my early '10 SS
for over 8 years and 50,000 miles. Other than some initial warranty work and
scheduled maintenance, I've only had to replace one tail lamp bulb- That's it !
