View Full Version : What Mileage is on your SC?

01-03-2004, 05:29 PM
Just wondering what mileages these cars are at now and how they doing.....mine's at 137,000 now going great since I got it in June had to replace the alternator,plugs and wires,fuel pump,and clean injectors. I think that's pretty good since wheni bought it it only had 120,000.

01-03-2004, 11:14 PM
i am lucky to have only 45,6XX on the clock. I bought it with 38,749 miles in late July of this year........which means I drive way too much!

My car still hasn't had a tune up, the only thing I replaced was the air filter and changed the oil a few times. The previous owner who was the original owner only changed the radiator because the tanks were leaking and changed the transmission fluid over to Mobile One. It still has the original plugs, wires, pcv valve, fuel filter, belts and......well everything! And I love that!

Got it in 10/94 with 38k. Some significant repairs over the last few months but overall, now feels 3 years newer and will continue to be the daily driver.

01-13-2004, 11:34 AM
1990 SC with 102k on it. Just rebuilt the engine and ready for 100k more.

01-15-2004, 09:55 PM

I think mine had about 193,000 km on it, when it went into my garage here last month ... that's about 120,000 miles for my friends south of the border. ;)

How about 271,344 , never had head gaskets replaced . I know I am tempting with fate , but this is the truth, got to be a record, am I right ?

02-16-2004, 07:25 PM
1989 SC with 175,000 miles and origional headgaskets. Owned it since it was new in July 1989. Daily driver and still love it as much as I did when I bought it.

7 are over 100K. Best runner is over 217K and pure stock exhaust and all.

02-17-2004, 11:35 AM
I have a '93 that I bought from the original owner 2 years ago with 39k on it. Now has 49k.

03-20-2004, 09:29 AM
So far, I've got a little over 198K (original owner) miles on my '92. It's my daily driver, 50 miles round trip to work in Atlanta's infamous rush hour traffic.

03-22-2004, 05:51 PM
My 92 now has 76000 kms or 47500 miles on it, bought it with 9000kms. Seems like there are quite a few with some low mileage.

Jason Wild
03-22-2004, 06:05 PM
My 90 has 167 000 Km or just over 100 000 Ml still looks like she did when it was new.

Had it almost a year now and it has 65900 when I bought it for $3500.00.
So far I've replaced the following.
TV cable Gromet. :p
Cowl Screen, both Left and right :confused:
Drivers side tail light. :eek:

I got a set of Firestone Firehawls to put on this summer. :D

03-22-2004, 08:06 PM
94 5-speed 86,400 all stock :D

03-24-2004, 01:46 PM
Bought my 92 SC with 34k 3 years ago

It now has 64,857 So I'm doing about average

Only changed the belts and oil..it's about time for a fuel filter and tranny service. Still have the stock Eagle ZR60's too :cool:

03-24-2004, 09:54 PM

My 89 has 226,xxx on it and Im doing the second motor rebuild of its life. Both motors taken by head gaskets. :(

03-24-2004, 11:47 PM
Bought my 95 5sp with 7,000 mi, now has just over 10,000. I'll have this car for a long time :)

03-26-2004, 04:13 PM
And here I thought I've put more on it than most people, but 271,000 impresses the hell out of me!

I've got 125K & change, with no major mechanicals - only routine maintenance and things like water pump, motor mounts, and various bushings. Honestly, in the past I'd never been impressed with the longevity of American cars (and American bikes, feh!), so this is way more than I expected. Then again, I love the car, so I probably take a bit better care of it than people usually do with their daily drivers.

03-27-2004, 02:28 AM
i have 95,600 on mine, and i bought it at 95,200 and ive had it for almost six months. yes it has been broken a long time. bent a rod at 95,600. engine back tomarrow. hmphhhhhh i have only used two tank of gas in this car, but almost a full set of back tires.........

304,547 miles on my '89. You name it and I've probably replaced it and maybe more than once. It has only failed to start for me once in the 11 years that I've owned it (bought it at 25,000). Crank sensor went TU last October.

03-27-2004, 05:48 PM
Purchased with 87k, now with 95k. It had prior work done, of an unknown origin. I have done some work so far, needs a little more. It has my '97 2.5L Jeep with 180k to compete with for reliability!

Remarkable cars, and I have certainly seen quite a few with many many miles over my nearly 3 years at this forum!

My 91 SC has 148,XXX and when I purchased her over a year ago she was at 122,XXX ...she's been through my wallet...first headgasket, tranny, blancer...and well all the tune up stuff...then of course performance... :D

Love the car and I'm greatful I finally got one! It's nice to have a car that is enjoyable no matter what the distance.

my 1995 automatic has 89,000 on it. Had about 50,000 on it when i bought it in March 1999. So far the only thing to go bad was the alternator late last year. I really don't drive it so much. I also have a 1987 Monte Carlo SS with 101,000 in it. Had it since I was 16 (and now I am 26) bought the SS with like 40,000 or so. Neither one gets driven so much anymore. I own a car lot so I usually drive something from it.

03-29-2004, 02:40 PM
I am at 165k and still kicking, my car has never failed to start except for a dead battery.

03-30-2004, 10:43 PM
Just turned 100,000

03-31-2004, 02:39 PM
When I bought it back in August there was 134,500 on the clock. Since Febuary when I have actually gotten to drive it (headgasket and tranny swap) it now has 141,100 on it.

04-03-2004, 09:33 PM
Mine had 168,000 when odometer stopped turning and still runnin strong just normal repairs alt,shocks,brakes etc........

05-09-2004, 09:19 PM

05-11-2004, 06:37 PM

99K miles on the 91 and 80 something on the 93.

Just about everything has been replaced or upgraded on the 91. The 93 is about to go on the jackstands for some major upgrades.


05-14-2004, 08:08 PM

hope to get another 100k

05-15-2004, 01:15 AM
76,800 on my '89 SC

05-20-2004, 06:23 PM
Mine is a 92 and still has original head gaskets with 212,520 miles on it. However have been through 3 tranny's...... (Auto)

05-21-2004, 10:59 AM
I have a 91 5 Speed. It has 108K on it now and had 79K when I bought it back in 97. I've only done oil changes, coolant, & t-stat. I changed out the original plugs and wires at 104K. I'm getting ready to install new struts/shocks & Eibach springs. Along with a set of air bags for the rear from SuperCoupe Performance.

05-23-2004, 04:20 PM
I bought my 92 with just over 81K on it last August, broke down halfway home in an 1100 mile trip (original fuel filter was plugged tight). Since then have done oil change, plugs, wires, radiator, valve cover gaskets. Now it has just under 85K. I need to put new motor mounts in it and I'm going to replace most bushings and probably shocks/struts soon. I just love this car and wish I had more time and money to play with it. I just don't want to put too many miles on it at this point.

05-24-2004, 07:25 PM
Mine has 102k as of this morning. New transmission at 78k but otherwise I have only done routine maintenance.

05-28-2004, 11:58 PM
89' lx 280k valve cover gasket, water pump, and alt replaced.
90' sc 90kish water pump and alt replaced.
96' lx 160k cam sensor replaced.

09-19-2004, 01:23 AM
Just bought an XR7 5 speed with 180K on the ticker...still runs strong :-) at least until the 100+ HP I plan on adding in the VERY near future.

09-19-2004, 10:26 AM
I bought my 1990 1 year ago with 61,800 for $3800. I am the second owner and they only drove it on big trips, so all highway miles. I am sad to say I drove it for the first time in snow last winter.

10-07-2004, 12:44 AM
my wife sc is a 89 and has 221,796, has had trans put in but the engen has sam head gaskets and only had a few tune ups in it life time, have put meny tires and brakes on it sence we have had it, i dont even remeber how long we have had it, last plat date was 94 and i think we bought in 93 with 65 tho on it, change the oil every 3 to 4 tho mills and she still drives it evey day, and i know it thaks her a hour to get there

10-07-2004, 07:40 AM
The car is an 89 SC, five speed. Just turned 42,000 km or 26,000 miles (It started life as a Canadian car). :)

10-07-2004, 07:55 AM

10-13-2004, 02:31 PM
99,900 miles on her as of yesterday. Hope the next 100k don't cost as much as the first :)

10-13-2004, 11:07 PM
yeah i just rolled over 100,000 last week, and im kind of sad in a way. well lets see i bought the car with 95,xxx and at 96,xxx it blew the HGs. then still in the 96,xxxs after the HGs were put in it bent a rod. so yes this car has cost me a ton for being stock. i owned it for 1000 miles when this was done...... HGs, engine rebuild, tranny rebuild, cam sensor, 02 sensors, plugs, wires, coil, fixed some wiring. but shes good to go now and exhaust, pulley, cool air, and shifter all coming in a month or so.

11-17-2004, 05:31 PM
201,000 and motor just went! got a new one on the way... would love to see another 200k!

11-17-2004, 05:34 PM

11-17-2004, 06:10 PM
Bought my 89 SC in 93....Paid $7500.00 from the original owner......Found the original sticker which had the sales price of over $22,000.00.

Had 24,000 miles when I bought her and just rolled over 126,000 on my last trip to the beach.

Just had the tranny overhauled this summer and a shift kit installed......

Other mods are coming soon....

12-09-2004, 03:09 PM
bought mine 2 months ago with 160k and only put a few more but is still 160k and runnin strong. the only thing i changed was the spark plug wires, the radiator, the air filter(removed air box) ummm changed the oil the thing needed a tune-up real bad serviced the tranny cause it started to slip, but that is no more, i think that is it.VVVVVVVVVVVVVthere she isVVVVVVVVVVVV :cool: :cool: :eek: :eek: :cool: :rolleyes: :) :D :D ;)

01-10-2005, 05:30 AM
Mine had 125K when I bought her in September 2001. I now have 158K, however the head gaskets were replaced around 150K. Still runs GREAT!

01-10-2005, 09:55 PM
Had 217,000 on my 93 until it got punched hard in the rear by an F150. Still ran strong up til then. Of course the head gaskets were replaced, but nothing else ever needed replacing.
Have 122,000 on the 91 I just purchased, runs like new. Hope to see 300,000 from this one!

04-22-2005, 01:21 AM
I bought my 94 SC new and it has 74,600 miles on it. So far no blown head gaskets. This vehicle has been pampered to point of absurditiy but it was one of my dream cars (other being 66 GTO). I only use Mobile 1 synthetic, never beat on it, change radiator fluid yearly, have it undercoated yearly since moving to northeast from Florida a few years back and have diamond gloss finish done annually since having it repainted. So far only unreplacable part to go has been odometer.

04-04-2007, 07:58 PM
i have a 92 i got it with 24,000 in 2005 now it has 33,000... i have blown head gaskets, dis modual, crank sensor, this car is a nightmare but i love it and it is my dream:) :)
