Im thinking about geting a used Titan. I found a 04 cc with a little over a 100,000 for around $ 9,000 Does anyone have over 100,000? How long will the motor last? Is 9 grand worth it?
there is always going to be things on any vehicle you have to fix no matter how new or how many miles it has. its part of owning a vehicle. but its the big things that usually go bad after 100k. engine would be fine though. i am thinking tranny, rearend, etc. 100k is nothing, especially for a late model vehicle. personally i would want something with a little less miles though.Ya I think im better off just spending a few grand more and get one with less miles. Im to busy to be fixing little stuff here and there. Its going to be A DD for my wife.
It depends on what your expectations are. You can take the T much furhter than 100K. I think they call for a total motor tear down around 250K. So, yeah, you aren't even half way. BUT In my experience after 100k lots of other things start to fail.
Gaskets need to be replaced etc...
So if you are handy with a wrench and dont mind a little down time you can pick up a 100K+ truck for a good work truck or 3rd vehicle.
All of the engine accessories become suspect. And they should. These componets are not 250k mile componets. See if they'll go $7k or less. Pocket the $2k diff for a rainy day - its coming.
Would I make it my primary? My Daily Driver? No.
don't be so hard on the domestics. there are some good American motors out there. one for sure is the 4.3L gm v6. those things run for EVER. aren't the hemis pretty reliable too? not the truck just the motor lol.I posted a question about engine replacements along with tranny if anyone has taken one out. I didnt get any responses back so that says something I wouldnt worry 100,000 is broke in and ready for another 100. like the other posters said things will break down but what doesnt. This is a Nissan not a domestic were after 100,000 miles there done engine and all.
I agree. I know a guy that has an 04 Yukon with 350K on it and the only problem he's had is the fuel pump went out at about 150Kdon't be so hard on the domestics. there are some good American motors out there. one for sure is the 4.3L gm v6. those things run for EVER. aren't the hemis pretty reliable too? not the truck just the motor lol.
I blame this post for causing this. :teethmastCurrently, no issues at all. No leaks and everything works.
Word! Ford 302 or 5.0's run forever. My buddy has an old f-150 with over 250K and hes never touched the motor. And the mustang guys completly abuse these things and make huge power and they just dont die.I agree.
