Has anyone on here purchased a V with high mileage? I consider high mileage to be 70K+. If so, how has your vehicle held up? Have any mods been done to it? Interested to see if they're holding up well performance wise, past the 70K, 80K, and even 90K miles.:confused:

Not high mileage, but i bought the car with 23k, first owner had it 3 years. I have put about 10k on it in 7-8 months, just so fun to drive. Only things i had addressed were the driver seat bracket and i had some front brake cooling ducts need some repair. And the goddamn gas take must have a leak in it... lol

Just bought mine with 29k 2012, taking it to have the SC looked at and see if they can do anything about my driver seat shifting and the headlights fogging up when it rains. Car is going to be a blast

Bought mine with 17000+ miles on it. Had the supercharger replaced shortly after buying it due to the marbles, otherwise no issues. My intercooler pump is still fine (IAT2's look great), but I am replacing it with the varimax pump due to all the stock pump failures I have heard about.

Edit: my back up camera did go out a little while ago, but I removed the rear trunk panel and made sure all connections were tight and it works again, took about 10 minutes to do so it's not really an issue.

Bought last year with 36k and change.

As long as the car was well maintained and is priced right I wouldn't see an issue with buying something with what you're looking at.

2009 bought December 29, 2014 with 39k miles, now have 44k miles. I have had the SC replaced with the extended warranty, replaced rear shocks, front lower control arms, and rear stabilizer bar bushings. Hoping nothing else needs replacing for awhile.

Bought mine July 4th last year with over 75k miles. Will clock over 99k miles today, and daily driven 100 miles :)

Previous one owner did a heck of a job with the scheduled maintenance. Still on original blower and isolator!! Only mod is ported LSA TB.

Just did my first tranny and rear diff. drain & fill....had no idea old rear diff. fluid smelled like granny foot.

Repairs done:
Replaced 3 tires:$400
Boost solenoid & diagnostic: $380

The OP is asking about high mileage V2s. There are multiple reports both on this site and the other site regarding V2s surviving very well with routine maintenance to well over the 100k mile marker. I'd buy a 75k V with no problem as a daily.

After all, the V is pretty much well-proven low-tech as far as drivetrain goes. There will always be someone who knows how to fix a small block V8 Chevy engine such as we have, or the modded truck tranny that 6AT Vs have.
