    Default 2001 V70XC - Crossed 200,000 Miles

    It is a feast of fearless ownership and trusted companion.

    The demon that lures one in to trade away includes residual value, warranty, and high mileage. JR's constant reminder of 2001 with a bad transmission provided every reason to beat it.

    I agree, it took some aggressive DIY for past 10 years to reach this milestone.

    Good job! That's my milestone (I'm at 187K), though my wife reprimands me every time I spend money on parts.

    Congratulations! The XC has 259,000 on it now. Running like a champ. I see no reason it canít make 300,000.

    Excellent! I reached 245K last week on my 2006 XC70, many thanks to this forum. Car runs better than ever (nothing to do with the thousands of dollars I've spent since 170K, I'm sure). I wonder what challenges lie ahead at 300K+...

    Indeed, it drives like a champ!

    Extremely responsive after a recent lubrication system service -Ė CVVT, PCV, cam and crank seals, oil cooling, and oil pan.
