Hundred thousand mile Trax starting to show up

As some may or may not know the Trax has been on sale in Canada since December 2012 and we are now starting to see some flipping the hundred thousand mile marker in a climate that is as harsh as can be.

The two examples that I've inquired about are still performing top notch and meeting their emission tests both have had their regular service and both had their water pump replaced along with the timing belt. The underbody (dealer undercoated) and interiors still look absolutely fresh and these vehicles look like they may go another hundred thousand miles. Which is great news for owners of turbocharged Trax.

Any new car should go 100K without major problems, modern engines and drives should last well over 100K.

I always give my car more than ordinary care, when I trade in one of my cars, I hope the new owner will continue with the level of care I gave it.

Thank you so much Jobu for sharing this, as I was a bit skeptical about "reliability" regarding this vehicle...specially due to the fact that I'm in Illinois and there is almost no way mine is lasting that long (I have no garage). I try to keep the mileage minimal at best, I'm a little over 7200 miles now, but my dream has always been to make it as far as these two! Both look incredible for the mileage.

Another thing that is encouraging is that these vehicles were purchased when the Canadian dollar was at par with the Greenback so these Trax have retained 40 to 50 percent of their original value after five years and 100 000 miles. Which is pretty much unheard for a big three vehicle other than a Vette or muscle car. A comparable Sonic,Cruze or Focus would be worth under 5000 dollars.

The popularity of B segment SUV make them a very good purchase.

This isn't surprising at all. Follow your maintenance schedule and clean the car regularly, you'll be able to take one of these to several hundred thousand miles with ease! You can essentially make any vehicle last you an extremely long time, it's all a matter of how you take care of it

Interesting that they are both FWD and manual trans.
Wonder how the AWD and auto trans will hold up.

Although since the wife only puts on about 800 miles a year, it should last forever.

Then explain how the lady driven superbly maintained Astra chewed up the top of its engine at 68 000 miles or why big chunks paint around door handles scaled off revealing deep corrosion around the door handles of a car that was dealer undercoated and oil coated every year and garage kept ?

There are a lot of lemons out there. The Austrian designed, Belgium assembled, French powered with Tcheck transmission Saturn badged Astra was one of them.

Highest mileage LT tracks right now are at 70 000 miles and Buick Enocore around 60 000 miles.

The two I found were outliers. Likely vehicles that were used for long distance highway commutes.

However there are 1.4T with Auto Chevrolet Cruze now hitting 150 000 miles

How many lemons were there in relation to how many were produced?
