Question So, who here as the most miles on their 3rd Gen TL?

I've had my '04 for exactly 3 years and it's now got 37,563 miles on it. I'm thinking that's pretty low compared to other members here.

I just passed 30K.

Is there a way to set this as a poll? it might be interesting to see a chart of the miles, maybe in 10K increments.

And a question, General - are you still using your original front brake pads?

Good idea. A poll has been added.

Brakes -- Well, my pads were replaced for free a while back because of the squealing noise that many have complained about. To my knowledge, the rotors were NOT turned. However, I have noticed lately that it may be time for a brake job. Performance has started to get progressively worse and the squealers are hitting more often.

General, I remember I got my 04 TL (6-sp man) within a few weeks of yours (mid Nov 03). I just hit 43,000 miles. Had Raybestos "QuietStop" lifetime ceramic pads put on (at Meineike) a few months back. No squeaks at all and they work great. Because it gets great mileage, our family runs the TL alot for business trips and long distance trips to relatives. My plan is to give to my son when he gets his drivers license.....he's 5 now I'm guessing timing belt and water pump (overkill) every 80,000 miles. Probably do fuel pump with the second timing belt. After that (and a set of lifetime struts etc etc), it's his!

Thanks for the pad info, I will look into those.

I don't take many road trips in my car...I save those for the bike. Since I bought the TL, the only road trips it's been on are a few to my mom's (about 450 miles round trip) and one to New Mexico (about 1000 miles round trip).

I am a driver. Bought my 05 with 24 miles on it in September 2005 and it has 44,000 miles already. But I just bought an S2000 as a second car and have been traveling a lot so I don't think that I am going to be putting more than 10,000 miles on it a year from now on... thank God. I hope to have this car for at least another 5 years and don't want to go over 100,000 miles before then.

This deserves it's own thread if someone hasn't started it yet.
