Default Highest Mileage

I'm coming up fast on the end of the warranty period and would like to know what the highest mileage is out there. For the most part I think all the kinks have been worked out of the car except what might be experienced in the long haul. I've got close to 30,000 miles and have had to have a hose replaced, computer reset twice, battery replaced and a power window motor replaced since owning this care.

This is my only transporation and really can't afford any repair bills after the warranty runs out. I'm trying to determine if I should get rid of the car now or keep it as long as it's fairly inexpensive to maintain.

Thanks for responding with your input.

I just joined this site. My 2004 Verona LX bought in 2005 currently has 25,915 miles on it and is the shop getting a new engine! (short block and new head) It won't cost me a dime as I upgraded the warranty to complete bumper to bumper with $0 deductible when I bought it. It started guzzling oil at about 25,000 mi about a quart every 100 mi !! The Suzuki dealer who has it says a Teflon?? cylinder lining is scored and pealing leaving voids that the synthetic oil is oozing through into the upper cylinders. I can't imagine a teflon coating so it must be some other friction reducing compound. Does anyone know what it is? maybe some moly compound. I imagine I'll be keeping mine until the warranty runs out as it has a very low trade-in value (according to the dealer I bought it from!)

Well it took over a month to get my car back. When I picked it up it ran like a dream! I got 27 mpg from the first tank of gas, but by the time the second tank ran out it was down to 19 mpg and struggling on hills with 2 adults. Now at 28,499 miles it's back in the shop for another engine replacement! This time it seemed like a blown head gasket with foamy oil on the dipstick. It's too late to use the lemon law but I have asked the dealer and Suzuki to buy it back. Either the aluminum engine with no cylinder sleeves is junk from the get-go or the dealer installation was improperly done but I have no confidence in Veronas any more. When it ran it was fun to drive and had nice options but without an engine it's not much of a value!

my 2004 verona has 58,000 miles. the only thing i have had to get fixed was the radio, it randomly goes into intro mode changing the songs on me at times. Now i am get really heavy vibrations, i have had the tires balance numerous times and still does it. it sound like i need to take it to the dealer soon.

try buying a car with a real engine and change the oil too often. YMMV

Smile Mileage Question

We bought our 2004 with 10000 miles on it and have had little or no problems that couldnt be fixed with the warranty. We are now coming up on 95,000 miles and will soon be out of warranty. The only issue we have now is the cruise control is making a funny noise but we will be taking it in before our extended warranty runs out. I would suggest you find a good mechanic outside the dealership who can do the regular maintenance we saved about $400.00 bucks on the 90,000 mile service by NOT going to the dealer. The car isnt the quickest off the line but so far she has held up well.

Talking 60,000

My '04 Verona has 60 thousand miles and is going strong with no major work done or needed! It's been a great little car.

I wish I had bought GM extended warranty on my '04 Epica...after the initial 60K warranty ran out I started having regular problems...front suspension bushings, tie rod/ball joints, ABS on one side...none covered. I still have "powertrain" warranty to 100K but it doesn't seem to cover very much. Currently has bad oil leak, don't know yet if it will be covered.
